Default Mr Clean and Clay bar... looks NICE!!! (56k run like hell!)

I did my first "home wash" of the year today. I've been going to the local car wash all winter long and finally decied today was nice enough to break out the good stuff. I started with the new MR Clean kit and that stuf really does work. My car was filthy and it cleaned it up nicely and no drying required!!! I then went back over it with the Clay Bar kit and that added a nice bit of shine to it! Here are my pics...

The drivers side driving light has been fogging up lately. Probably about time to replace them.

I have a custom 3" stainless steel setup. The pipe is a bit larger than stock and also staighten out thruout the length. To help make the pipe straighter they dropped it down just a little bit in the back to avoid some un-needed bends. The pipe you see below it is where there is normally a few bends.

The car actually looks really good considering that it has scratches all over, rock chips and road wear on the lower panels, and full hail damage. The shine actually seems to hide some of the imperfections.
