Default Fall= Park Ave Full Detailing !

It started out simple enough, a Power wash, a sponge with Armorall Wash Wax & Protect and scrub the old PA good!

However after discovering the hood felt like 1000 grit sandpaper....
It was time for some clay bar work to say the least !

So with using the supplied Detailer Spray and rubbing the clay all over...
I think you can see how much crap/small particles were in the paint!

After using the supplied cloth to remove the detailer...
It was time for Meguires #2 polish to really get to the next level...

Now the final step..wax. I applied the quality Meguires Quick Wax !

I have always wanted to know with the hood this aerodynamically smooth...
you must cut though the wind better & get better fuel mileage?

The Roof / Trunk is darn slippery now too! I hope to see 3mpg better LOL..

Ya Guys a full size sedan is a lot of work & a great workout! I refuse to use a buffer!
My shoulder felt like Daniel'* last night...
After a good rest overnight I feel great... with power restored...
Now it is time to do the 4x4 ! HOY YA !

Looks great man, made me tired thinking about doing it all, lol
I have a buffer, but usually do it by hand, I am way overdue a waxing, I'd detail mine up if I had somewhere to hide it from the trees spewing pollen and crap all over my car!
I hate the trees where I live, they are way too close!
