    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    I tried combining a couple of life's pleasures this afternoon...washing a dirty car, enjoying a sunny, 50 degree day in Chicagoland in late November and listening to U of M on the radio while doing the first 2 (thanks MichiganWhat did you do today, in regards to detailing?)

    Anywho, I started by using Chemical Guys Blacklight in my IK foamer to clean the tires/rims/well. I'm using this product to thin down my soaps and besides, wasn't a fan of this product on my coated car in the past, glogged up the coating and created sheeting, so THIS is a good use for it. Used 3 brushes to clean up the tires/rims/wells, rinsed with the Worx hydroshot and time to move onto the carwash.

    This time around I reached for CarPro Ech2o, 2 ounces to 3.5 gallons and five 16 x 24 edgeless mf towels. It's been a while since I've used Echo but was quickly reminded how GREAT it is! I always pre-treat every panel, no matter how dirty it is or ISN'T and not only does it clean very well but the slickness and Gloss left behind is amazingWhat did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    I finished up by applying Gyeon Tire Express to the tires and now the 2nd half is about to start w/ Michigan down, at home, to winless Penn State 17-7What did you do today, in regards to detailing?What did you do today, in regards to detailing?What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    You should avoid UM at all costs period, but especially as long as Harbaugh is around.

    Started paint correcting this. Sanding the whole car down with 2000 to get rid of haze, then buffing it back to a mirror shine!

    Moved on to polish the 3rd brake light and taillights on my recently purchased 2008 Tacoma. Interior next then detail the engine bay and follow up with polishing the paint and then a coating.

    I hope you're doing a write up of this. With how clean your Miata is, I can't wait to see what the Tacoma looks like.

    Yesterday was cleaning the windshield and rear window, then claying and applying Griots glass sealant. Today was cleaning wheels/tires, applying tire dressing and ceramic wheel sealant.
