    optimun no rinse wash
    clay magic bar and liquid glide thingy
    optimum car wax.

    very basic cleaning and wax, but took me a good 1.5 hours.

    here were the results.

    Looks really wet! 1.5 hours to wash, clay and wax isn't a bad time at all. :)

    Y'all get as much rain in Houston as we are in the Dallas area? 3 damn weeks straight, nearly every day it rains or there is a chance of rain. :sad2:

    Super job on the white paint. I'll bet the paint wasn't that bad to begin with, if you did it in 1.5 hours. Can you feel a significant difference in the paint quality from before to after?

    Just did my first full wash, clay bar (full car), polish and wax. Took me about 3.5 hours. Used Meguires Wash, Mothers Clay, Meguires Show Car Glaze, and NXT Wax. The car is my white 06 Evolution IX. It came out well, it sure is hard to see polish and wax on white.
