Default 10 dollars well spent!?

I had a ten dollar gift card to WalMart amd a car that need some serious attention in the detailing department.
So....
here'* what I got
A package consisting of Armor All Power Wash gel and Wax it Dry Gel
(just apply wet and wax dry)
A container of Turtle Wax rubbing compound
(bad scratches and swirls)
and a 3 pack of terry towels
(only thing I could afford)
Grand total
$10.01
Step 1 - wash
is complete...looks good so far.
Got to be noon and cant use the rubbing compound in sunlight so I 'll go out later and use that than wax and we'll see.
I'll post some pics of the finished product and before and after shots soon.

That sounds good to me.

When you get done, could you fly down here and do my car? It needs it and I'm not in the mood, lol.

If you want a cleaner car and want to be less sore, the best thing ever is to wash your car, clay bar it, then wax it. A clay bar takes no effort at all and I have been able to wax my whole car in 20 minutes after a clay bar.

Then I went and watched TV.
