Post-winter step 1...

Deep clean and polish, baby. I couldn't wait to get my pony cleaned after all the crud that was kicked up on her this winter. Did the Mothers stage 1 polish today. This week I will be FINALLY getting rid of the hideous PP wheels and putting these GT AM wheels on her that will match the racing stripes. I can't wait!

So who else is detailing their baby this weekend? What products/techniques do you use if so?

Bring on the Spring!!!

I assume you were talking to me hawk stang. So here you go, I pulled it back out the garage just for you, lol. I thought my car got dirty but it's just the reflection of that white stain on the driveway. I haven't washed my car since January 4th. That's when I washed, clay barred, then waxed. Since then it's just been the duster keeping it clean.

It is. I pulled my Mustang out of the garage and she saw her shadow.

I've only had the wheels since November but so far so good. When I waxed the car back in January I also pulled the wheels off and cleaned and waxed those as well. Makes a huge difference on how much dirt sticks to them.
