I need to wash and wax mine again. Just seems like I have to wash it every 2 days cause I can't stand it being dirty. Did a huge detail job on it Sunday for the photo shoot with Samir and it's already trashed. I hate not having a garage .

Best thing I've found...especially in our summer monsoons here...get a good wash and wax in and let it "cure" for a day or two. Then once it starts getting dirty/rained on, etc. use some Meguiar's (or another good brand) of exterior quick detailer. I love the stuff. Not an expert on paint and detailing but it does good enough for me and my car is a driveway queen.

Thanks, I'm probably going to be selling it or trading it or something here in a bit. Getting tired of FWD pretty quick. I actually had the inserts of the stock wheels painted body color. I wanted to polish up my rims but wasn't happy with how they were turning out so I had them painted. They weren't my favorite at first but I like different stuff and they're growing on me. Here's a better pic of the whole car:


That pic was taken last year at import alliance. I've pulled all that tint out and done a few minor minor things but it's all about the same lol.

What is it with Metallic Orange cars? They always look so clean and always catch my attention. I used to have an Orange Cobalt SS.

Now I own a red one lol.

Hmm these cars look familar lol.

BTW Matt, my wife has a habit of taking pictures of me looking like I'm getting ready to beat someone down. Here is an example: Looks like you are fixing to spray me with the detailer and I'm fixing to hit your or something lol

Here is one of Matt looking like he is clueless on what he is doing lol.

What you need to do to help with this is: strip off ALL of the old wax/sealant/protectant or whatever you have on the car. Put a good layer of glaze, which will also help minimize the appearances of swirls and micro-scratches. After the glaze you can put a sealant, wax, or both on the car. You need to wait 24 hours after applying a sealant before you put either a 2nd layer of sealant or a coat of wax. If you go with wax, and you want to put multiple layers, you need to wait atleast 12-24 hours depending on the product. A good orbital buffer will make the process go much faster. The combination helps keep the surface cleaner longer not allowing dirt and contaminants from settling on the surface.

If you are going to use meguiar's go to o'reilly's and on the back shelfs (not near all the other garbage car care products they have) they have the higher end products from meguiar's. I'd also suggest using a quik detail spray that doesn't have protectants in it because it could cause contaminants to get stuck into the paint and will require alot more work to completely clean the car of contaminants.

If you have any more questions or anything just ask
