    This is an awesome vehicle that I have been maintaining for over a year now. This was not a correction detail but an enhancing exterior protection detail followed by a full interior detail.....the top stays down all of the time!

    Wash Cycle:
    Meguiar's Gold Class Wash...rinse.
    No claying was needed.

    Paint Cleansing Phase:
    Meguiar's D-151 via G110 using LC White 5.5" Polishing Pad

    This was to remove any previous wax/sealant and any stray swirls. We live in a rough enviroment here in the mountains.

    No wipedown as issued since I wanted the protectants in D-151 to stay on the paint.

    Paint Protection:
    Collinite's #476s by hand and Meguiar's hand pad. The door jambs received the same treatment.

    The trim and glass were protected by Optimum's Opti-Seal.

    The top was cleaned/protected by 303's system.

    Wheel Cleaning and Protection:
    Cleaned with Meguiar's Wheel Brightener and protected Collinite's 476s

    Tire Protection:
    Meguiar's Endurance Tire Gel

    Interior:
    Leather cleaned with Meguiar's APC 20:1 and protected with Pinnacle's leather conditioner. All other surfaces were cleaned/treated with Meguiar's Interior Quick Detailer. Carpets and mats were deep cleaned with Folex and steam. Glass was cleaned with Meguiar's Detailer Line Glass Cleaner.

    Time accumulated:
    6 hours

    Afters only. I clean it on a weekly basis.

    Nice work! The top doesn't look down to me though :p

    What dilution do you usually use for the Meg's WB? I find I can get away with 20:1 in most cases but I might even be able to go thinner than that....

    At least I know you're reading what I've typed!

    I have 2 bottles....one at 4:1 and one at 10:1. If the wheels are bad, out comes the 4:1 but 10:1 is my norm. I have used it at like 40:1 in a pinch.......and it worked well!
