NICE!!  Makes me wish my black Equinox was clean, but it's been rain, rain, and more rain lately.

Light rain on and off here in South Texas ... Try to stay in but sometimes you just have to...  Quick wipe down with some CS3 and she looks good again.

It was a sunny 84 in Columbia today so I did a quick wash on the Garage Queen Terrain and changed the color of the my truck.  I have around 100 Azalea bushes, plus about 10 dogwoods, surrounded by pines and every other type of tree, flower and bush you can imagine and they are all in full bloom .  There is no escaping the pollen at this point.

 

The second picture of the truck has water drops after a rinse and within minutes I could see the pollen rings on the water droplets.  There is no need to try and do anything special at this point, but I did do an experiment.   Last fall, I ceramic coated the tonneau cover and in the past I've needed to do a deep clean and treatment with 303 each.   The tonneau has stayed in excellent shape and since the water was still beading today, but I did go over it with CS3 today.   I did the wife's Terrain earlier this week and was impressed with how slick it was when washing it, so it will be interesting to see how the tonneau is come next weekend when covered with pollen again.

A balmy 15c/59f here today and sunny. Perfect for a wash.

Didn't take a before pic, but here is the old beat up nox after a wash, HGG, glass sealant, and a little attention paid to the trim and tires.

Probably time to swap the wheels back over to the all seasons.

Oh, also used TRC on the weathertech mats then hit them while working the tires and trim. They look like new - thanks one take Tuesday!

Lastly hit the interior with interior detail spray with microban.

 

More work than I planned to do, but you know how it goes. Once you get started...

Didn't take any pics, but I tucked the snowblower safely away in the back of the shed today, and got the Cub Cadet out and washed it up, changed the oil, lubed it, and put a little Ceramic Wax on it.  It's old, but it still looks pretty good.   If it snows now, it's just going to have to melt on its own.

Thanks Rich,  I was trying to figure out what to do next since I'm out of vehicles that need anything above a wash to for the pollen.  It's time to wash, polish and ceramic coat the Red Riding mower.    I've don't the underside of the deck with ceramic boost for  a couple of years and it really helps to keep the grass from sticking. 

 

Between washing the bike this weekend and doing the mower, that should cover me for at least one of the two days.

Day... I can’t remember what day it is..? Anyway I did a full Tire Armor detail today.  I have been CS3ing between the rains in so cal, And every time I did tire shine, then it rains again and the tire shine instantly washes off.  So we will see how the Tire Armor holds up!

first pic is throughly cleaned

second pic is first application 

third pic is second application 

 

I hope this lasts because I hate doing wheels and tires. And this was not a fun process!
