Washed my car sunday afternoon , after the disappointing JETS game. Then Sunday night at work, waxed my car with
Applied it with the supplied applicator. Removed with 9" orbital buffer, 1st with terrycloth pad then wool pad, then again by hand with micro-fiber polishing cloth. Looks sweet, feels sexy.

Hence what I said in my post...when I mentioned that the picture was from a different time/place...

My car was nasty becuase it snowed here, then it sat in my garage for two weeks while in hawaii. When I got back I wanted to wash it but was affraid of grinding the dirt into the paint. So I went to a new touchless car was....where nothing *gasp* touches your car....except water and such. Anyway, I know there are some harsh chemicals, but thats okay, because I wax monthly. I was impressed witht the results as well.....

So, the last time I washed my car was about 2 weeks ago. However, Its been driven from our detail facility straight home, and hasn't left the garage in that time, due to inclement weather.

At the time of cleaning, baby recieved a bath and clay bar. Then was lightly polished with an electric buffer, at slow speed with a foam pad. Afterwards, I applied a hard carnuba wax by hand. The wheels were cleaned and waxed with a synthetic wax, and the interior was cleaned and "dressed" with an interior sealant. Glass also done....I do not have any of these product names, as they are not typically items found on the store shelves......But, it looks darn good!

yeah, pretty much what I should have done, but with highschool people in town I gotto sport the millenia.

I know you'll like this ski, I went down to the audi/porsche/vw dealership and test drove a 2005 a4. although I was pretty pissed that the base base is like 24k, and when I added the ultra sport package, nav, the upgrades wheels, something with a stock bodykit, and an upgraded sound system it came to like 40k (3.0 6 spd) 650 for a lease, meh. I'm considering it

ok, so yesterday it was 70, but was raining, today it was 39 but didn't rain, none the less my millenia sadly got caught in some rain and needed to be washed, hand washed millenia. 2 hours in sweat pants, sweat shirt and a hat, piss cold, even did wax as you dry and rims.

parked it in the garage, put on a light jacket, drove 2 miles, ran jeep through car wash for 6 bucks, came home

I last washed and waxed my car last night and today. Here is what I used, and the links to the pictures are there too. The pictures are also posted in the 929 photo corner thread. I am well pleased with Meguires products.

I usually wash once a week, and wax twice a month. I do the interior once a week, also.
