What I did over New Years Weekend to the cars (Bubble Bath Time)

The last couple of weeks I got the itch to get detailing equipment, so I asked for advice from no one else but Tomato. Great guy, and he has detailed my car in the past.

Ordered the stuff and than this past weekend since i had some extra days off from work, went to town at cleaning the G, Altima, and the BMW.

Tomato came over to mentor me a little bit and show me some tricks, but for the most part, after spend over 20 hours or so on cleaning 3 cars. I did a good job. Would not consider myself a pro but def alot more knowledgeable than I was a week ago.

Day 1 Work - G37 all Complete.

After different polishing steps, sealant, wax, tire prep, and thousands of other things.

I unveil the black beauty. It now sits in the garage waiting to be driven.

Sorry no pictures of the altima, just got to dark when finished with that

thanks everyone

and the taillights were sprayed with some stuff my bodyshop guy uses, its pretty legit because i loose no light at all when its turned on but during the day they look perfect. I even got pulled over once, and the cop felt the tail lights up and down and than let me go because i convinced him that they were "stalk"

and lol @ Eric

^^^WERD^^^

We getting ready down here in TX as the nasty weather usually hits in late Jan-Feb.
Winterizing mode in full effect to keep our babies protected. I'll be like a bear hibernating thru it all so keeping busy for now.

I know the wheels are the biggest PITA and people think having matte black wheels is easier to clean, they are so wrong, they are harder to keep clean...

and for the interior, i usually use a combination of different cleaners. I was getting way to tired to getting it dirty as well so usually i clean, put revival cream, and protectant on it twice a year and than just clean twice a month or less (its no longer my DD)

do you have tan interior as well?
