    Ok, know up front that the front and rear bumpers and the hood had no treatment. They all need to be repainted. Anyway, on to the work!


    Wash: Meguiar's Gold Class Shampoo, Some cheap chenille mit that sheds way too much.

    Paint Treatment: Clayed with Mother's Gold Clay and Showtime QD.
    Compound with Pinnacle Advanced Swirl Remover
    Polish with Pinnacle Advanced Finishing Polish
    Wax/Sealed with Poorboy's EX Sealant with Carnauba
    Tires - Advance Auto Parts Tire Wet Stuff

    Interior to be done at a later date. ON WITH THE PICS!!!!!!

    all the brown you see on this wheel is rust from worn out brakes.

    To clean this wheel, I used WD-40, Red Scotch Brite Pad, and 0000 Steel Wool. It's not perfect yet, and could use some AIO waxing on it.

    Here's a side by side shot of some work. This was during the ASR (1st) step after claying.

    I didn't realize how bad the paint was.

    The white marks on the rockers are gouges from the previous owner's blowout.....not much I could do about them.

    That is a drastic improvement, JRock! Nice work. Is that just a primer'd hood?
