I took about 6 hrs and washed my car today. Started with a wash, then clay bar, the the two step black box from turtle wax. It's definitely an improvement, but just about anything would have been. I like the black wax better than the nxt stuff I used last year. It went from looking good from 50' to being pretty good up to around 20' now. The plus side of having an ugly car is I didn't mind getting some help from my 4 yr old daughter.

It wasn't hard at all. I only did little areas, so I didn't let it sit for very long.

I use their (Turtle Wax) Color Magic black polish on mine, does pretty good job.

Speed never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary, that's what gets you.

I should have taken a pic of her when we finished with the wax. She looked like a chimney sweep, black all over her face and hands.

Haha, little girls that age are just fun to be around. All they want to do is help Daddy. I can still remember my daughter and I walking back to the river behind our house to go fishing. Sarah wanted to carry all of the gear by herself. She had poles and buckets and bait hanging off of her everywhere. She went pretty far with it, but finally gave in and let Daddy carry it all, except her pole.

man 6 hours...I did that a couple times and boy was I sore!!
I mean like back hurting like a motherf..k...

I detailed mine for the first track meet at great lakes this year.
Spent all nite washing, drying, claying, and detaling.

I just washed it last week and detailed sprayed it for like 3 hours.

So I've only 'detailed' twice this year. Very time consuming.

Very nice Bill.
