    I finally got around to doing my own car! The paint isn't perfect and has orange peel so it isn't a mirror but it definately has a deep wet look to it now.

    Here's what I did:

    Interior:
    1. Vacuumed.
    2. Pinnacle Leather Cleaner and Conditioner on the seats and door panels.
    3. Baby oil on the dash pad and most of the interior plastic.
    4. Glass will be cleaned with Eagle One 20/20 later today.

    Exterior:
    1. Washed everything with Meg's NXT and a little dawn.
    2. Dried.
    3. Clearkote Vanilla Moose on grey finishing pad. I also put this on the windshield.
    4. Clearkote Carnauba Moose Wax on blue finessing pad.
    5. Glass will be cleaned with Eagle One 20/20 later today.
    6. Tires will be shined with some Armorall stuff later.

    I am very happy with the results. :-D Now for the pictures!

    During/After:

    I forgot to take a before shot before I started waxing so this shot has half the hood done with the Vanilla Moose.

    The Pinnacle stuff doesn't make the leather shiny. :)

    I'm going to try and get some good pictures later today before the car gets filthy again.

    The paint looks really good, especially for a 16-year-old car! :)

    Baby oil on the dash? Seriously?

    The paint is actually only a little over a year old.

    Sure. The Aerospace 303 stuff is way to expensive in my opinion and Armorall ruined my original dash pad. Baby Oil doesn't have silicone and it makes the dash have a nice shine. Is there anything as good as the 303 but doesn't cost a small fortune?

    Baby Oil is probably odd but my dash pad is still crack free. :) The Poorboy's and Optimum stuff costs almost as much as the 303 so I guess next time I place an Autogeek order I'll just go ahead and get the 303.
