    I just got back from a 5 hour road trip in the rain from Houston. I bought Black Tahoe that was in great condition beside a few little things that will be taken care of with some help from yall and the love of a PC.

    Dawn is for dishes. Use car wash soap. Why subject your Tahoe to such a strong degreaser unless you plan on using Zaino?

    Other than that, your plan sounds fine.
