Default Wax on...Wax Off

Well Just got home from being out of town yet again ( do it every week). Stole the car from Renée and gave her mine for the evening. I picked up more of that 3 step Meguiars since it worked great on my truck I used it on.

Took me about 4.5 hours and I still have to clean the windows and also clean the inside, but it was getting late.

Here is a shot of what the car looked like before I even washed it, as you can tell it is pretty dull


Here is after I washed it, a bit more shine to it but still not that great ( in the back is my truck that I took out of it'* little hole so I can wax the car



And here we have it after washing and applying the 3 steps process and a final buffing, pretty amazing for a 14 year old car I think.



Of course it is dark and my poor truck is still sitting there waiting to go back to bed, LMFAO.



EDIT: I forgot to mention that the paint is as smooth as glass now. Renée didn't know what I wanted the car for and she was suprised when I showed her. Looks almost showroom, except for a few dents and a few rust spots, LOL.
