Default Detailing in Middle of Winter

Well I decided since roads were cleared in my area that I would go to car wash and wash car. After this I brought it home, dried it off well, put some zaino detail spray on it, shined up the wheels/tires and used polish on my exhaust tips. I then continued to do some underhood detailing as well. I cleaned up some part, put back in my air filter setup completely, and detailed the underside of my hood as well.

That hood looks awesome on your car.

I actually do need one for my SSEi, had to cut holes in the bottom layer to make room for the SC after the intercooler went in.

Ultra clean engine compartment. I had the dealer used the waxy undercoating throughout the GXP enigne bay. I often regret it trying to clean things up under the hood, yet prolly be glad for it 20 years down the road. It will still be solid as I gaze at it from the wheelchair. Hahahah!
