Default Joe'* weekend wash/wax job, plus interior pics!!!

I had some free time this weekend so I washed up the ole bonnie and wanted to try out a new wax from meguiars: NXT Generation Tech Wax. It'* decent stuff, it'* easy on and easy off and produces a decent shine, it'* always hard to tell on white paint. I had an opportunity to clean up the interior as well, heres some pics of the aftermath:







Here are some interior shots, completely stock, but pretty clean for 60K miles:









Bonus tip pic!!!





And now for the somewhat sad ending, here'* what was going on outside while the bonnie was in the garage getting pampered:




As you can see from the interior rain shots, I wasnt in my bonnie. My dad was kind enough to let me drive the Z home until it dries up, whatta guy!! And yes, that is a big pink elephant in the last pic, only in WV, lol!!! What do you guys think??

Joe.

That car is clean and sweet, inside and out dude. I cant believe how much the interior looks like my 05, just carbon fiber where most your inserts are. And ......could ya give me the addy of that pink elephant, I WANT IT! I could get a lot of mileage out of that elephant, parking it in friends yards.

Looks great.......

I used the same wax yesterday and it doesn't do too bad.







Shoulders are killing me though from the hand wax :(

Agreed!!!!

And for anyone whose curious, the driver'* side floor mat is out because I was still scrubbing on it! And it'* still far from perfect, but looks much better, just not pic worthy, lol.
