    This one was nasty. I think it took almost as long to wash it and do the inside as it did to buff it! The interior looks a lot better than it really was in the before picture and I forgot to get an after picture. This is the first car I've done with Optimum Poli-Seal and this stuff is great.

    After:

    Vacuumed interior, Armorall on the dash and plastic parts and to clean all the pollen and dirt out of the jams, 1:1 Woolite and water for the stains, polished headlights and taillights, washed with Megs NXT car wash, dried, All Wheel Cleaner for the caked on brake dust, Black Magic Tire Shine (still trying to get rid of what's left), Rainx Glass Cleaner, and finally Optimum Poli-Seal with a white polishing pad.

    Fenderwells could use some dressing, otherwise it looks really good! :)

    The fenderwells didn't get any dressing because I didn't clean them because my scrub brush was too big to get in there and the tires did get some dressing but I didn't get it even or anything because the tires were getting replaced the next day. I was also rushing at that point (the tires was the last thing I did) because I was late.

    Haha, next time I will spray some of the Black Magic stuff in there! I got a new brush anyway that should fit (I needed that for my car too since now that I have the right size tires on it the old brush wouldn't fit either). And yes I know Armorall is bad, I don't have many of the wipes left. I've been using baby oil on my car and it gets a nice shine like Armorall too.

    Armorall actually isnt THAT bad.
    Their new water bassed formulation actually works quite nice.
    They low shine formula (which i dont think they make anymore), was actually a really nice dressing. Ive gone through two bottles of the stuff. Just cant seem to find it anymore, and my third bottle is damn near empty.
