    Spent the better part of two days on her, the outside was a mess at first. Went so far as to clean the wheels inside and out and polish them during a rotation, then threw on new lug nuts.

    FYI I only use Meguiar's polish/wax products and a Meguiar's G100 (Porter Cable 7464) for detailing

    -Mothers Gold Car Wash
    -Meguiar's PlastX with 8006 pad on lenses
    -Meguiar's ScratchX by hand on problem areas
    -Meguiar's #80 Speed Glaze with 8006 pad
    -Meguiar's NXT Tech 2.0 Wax with 9006 pad
    -Meguiar's #40 Vinyl and Rubber Cleaner & Conditioner for all black/plastic trim
    -Meguiar's G7516 Endurance Tire Gel
    -Blue tape on trim during polish/wax sessions
    -Windex Crystal Rain on glass (prior was Sprayway Foam but this stuff works better IMO)
    -Purple Power concentrate in engine bay (undiluted)

    Questions or tips feel free to contact me.
