My grandfather recently let me borrow his Camaro to use for the trip to and from prom. It hadn't really been driven in a few months and as a result it had accumulated a layer of dust and grime that needed to be removed before my OCD would allow me to take it out in public. I began by attempting to remove as much of the tire browning that I could by spraying an ungodly amount of TRC on them and then scrubbing the faces with the tire brush and the white lettering with a nylon brush, which left them presentable but not perfect. I followed by washing the car and subsequently claying some areas that had noticeable contamination. I brought the Camaro inside and prepped and went around most of the car doing a one step polish with a DA and topped with LPS and Americana Wax. Next it was time for the interior which was vacuumed and cleaned with the interior scrubbing mitt and a leather and interior cleaner followed with leather conditioner. (I apologize in advance for the lack of photo documentation)

Nice work, Miles! But the real question is...did your date like it? 

Thanks man! Honestly I don't think she would have cared had we driven the Camaro or my truck (see previous picture I posted). I'm sure she definitely enjoyed flying around the backroads at 12am though lol, I know I did

No one threw up in it thank God, I would've had to teach them a little lesson haha. He sure does I wish he still had his '69 Chevelle that thing was beautiful

No kidding?  When I got out of the Navy in 69, I went straight to the dealership and ordered a blue 69 Chevelle SS 396 with a white stripe down the side.  Wish I still had mine too.  And Chris (moderator on here) just restored a 69 Chevelle.  Beautiful car.

His was black with white stripes down the hood. And thank you for your service
