    This is a late mother's day present while she's on vacation. When she was home, we could never find time when she could sit at home long enough during nice weather. I washed and clayed last Saturday, DACP and S100 SEC on Monday, EX-P and wheel cleaning today. Figure I've spent about 7 hours on it now, and I still gotta do the interior and some work on the headlights before she gets home this coming Saturday. Too bad the first time she'll see it is when I pick her up from the airport -- 70 miles away. Maybe I'll take some QD and clean it up in the parking garage :)

    Inside the garage, camera is just a couple inches off the surface of the hood

    Thanks, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to notice any difference after I got the dust cleaned off, but each step seemed to make some sort of improvement. This was my first time using the EX-P, and I'm pretty impressed with it right now.
