    These are two of my first clients.
    They both, once again, recieved the same process. I polished them both about a month ago so no aggressive polishing here. I did do something different this time. I had some Woolite mixed 2:1 and when I started on the Tahoe, I pre-soaked it entirely with the mix. I let it sit for 5 minutes and took my Karcher to it. Holy smokes! Bugs and road grime slid off! Couldn't believe it. Plus it did not remove any of my previous wax as it still beaded. Just wanted to let you know about this find.
    Here's what else they got....

    Meguiar's NXT
    (Added 2 teaspoons of Dawn for extra cleaning power.)

    FK1 #2180 Sealant
    (Used Edge2K Blue Pad at #4. Let sit for 15 minutes and remove by PC and MF bonnet. Waited 1 hour before applying wax.)

    Souveran Liquid Wax
    (Used Edge2K White Pad at #3. Let haze and removed by hand.)


    Other Products used:
    FK1 Protectant
    (Dash, leather, and all plastic.)
    Woolite 8:1
    (Used to clean all plastic and leather. Wiped down with clean, wet MF to remove any soap left. Also used to clean Bug's rag top.)

    Woolite 2:1
    (Used to presoak all exterior panels.....WORKED!)
    Armor All Extreme Tire Gel
    (Two coats. About 30 minutes between each)

    Megs APC 4:1
    (Used to remove bugs on front, windshield and mirrors. Also used on tires, wheels, and inner fenders.)

    Stoners Invisible Glass

    FK1 #425
    (Used on LCD screens, instrument cluster, laminated plastic trim, and all exterior glass.)

    Your work just gets better and better. I am glad you are having so much success, you really have earned it. :bowdown:

    I agree about Woolite, really versitile cleaner that isn't too aggressive. Also works at 2:1 for whitewalls and engines.

    Another great example of hard work paying off (...and paying!). :bigthumb:

    Nice jobs, Justin! Thx for sharing! BTW - I'm going to try the woolite mix on the next pre-wash, to get the bugs off.

    I met up with hot rod club last night. It seems that within their click they are using Woolite to wash their custom built rides with. They say it's very gentle and leaves a nice, slick coating on the surface. They are using 1/2 cup per 2 gallons.
    I might just have to try it out.
