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

    Paint correction is done on the Tahoe. Just need to wipe a couple spots down, and then putting the coating on later after I take a break with a couple beers. This is the wife’s daily driver so just a good one step that pulled 90+% of the defects out. Rupes tools, blue coarse compound, and blue foam pads.

    My G8/G9 kit arrived so I put the G8, orange pad & some Boss correcting cream to work on the damage caused by the road debris last weekend. Sorted! No trace of the damage at all

    Put the coating on the Tahoe today. I was too worn out yesterday after beer to do anything else. Coated all paint, trim, lights, and wheels.

    Used some Poor Boys Strip down to remove stubborn sap and followed up with Tec582.

    While vacuuming out the EN a little bit ago I decided to clean the d/s mat real good. I've had the new Griot's Garage foaming carpet cleaner sitting there doing nothing and figured it was time.

    I came back inside and used my Mother's tire and wheel brush to scrub the mat and now it's outside drying in the sun. I'll vac it right before it's reinstalled.

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

    Finally got a chance to reverse whatever the dealer did in their "detail". I'm really liking the blue on this car. Pictures aren't great but I was too lazy to pull it back out in the sunlight. Ironically, most of the products I used were also new. The surface is very slick and shinee What did you do today, in regards to detailing?


    Griot's Surface Prep
    Decon
    Poorboy's Pre-soak foam
    Poorboy's Black Hole
    American Garage Valor Sealant
    Tac Shinee Wax

    Griot's Wheel Cleaner
    Adam's Tire Cleaner
    303 Touchless for the wheels
    Pinnacle Black Onyx Tire gel

    DP 20/20 Glass Cleaner

    I was planning to actually just do Natty's Blue Wax on top of the glaze but the glaze covered enough of the "dealer provided" swirls that I decided to try that new sealant. Went on easy so we'll see how it lasts...or, how long until I add something else at least. Ended up a 5hr endeavor when all said and done. What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    I put a brand new Genesis cut trunk mat from WeatherTech in the new X3... fits too well to not keep it. It actually rolls up a little against the back of the rear seats and I can see that being extremely helpful when a muddy stroller gets thrown in there.

    Now my spotless TuxMat set (thanks to this OCD cleaning forum) was an easy sell in a Genesis group online. Ended up costing me only $50 to use them a year.

    The Tux mats look awesome! Derek0609 has them and loves them! He's had nothing but bad luck w/ WeatherTechs, even the warrantied ones curled up.

    I've had good luck with mine but they're only used during the winter monthes anywaysWhat did you do today, in regards to detailing?
