I went out to the garage to get a screw driver, and somehow ended up detaling my car.

Not what I planned for today but happy with the results!





I had done a full detail in May so this time around I used M105/M205 only on a few scratches and marks that I had. Then Chemicals Guys Extreme EZ glaze -> Blackfire Wet diamond -> Collinte 845.

What do you think of my new air hose hanger?

Looks great! Maybe you should go out to my garage to get a screwdriver too....

Perhaps you meant sites driver the drink. How many did you have to lose track of time like that?

Nice work though. The car looks beautiful!

I have them everywhere! That one is bent and cracked so it became an expensive hose reel.

I have one cracked on the car now, and a refinished one in the box ready to replace it...

Mine cracked but I got it welded back up and it's good as ever.

Man its strange how that works.. I went to the garage to grab a box fan and ended up tackling a radiator swap in the e46. Your car looks great! I need some tips to get my escalade looking like that.

LOL I had 2 cracked 190's I wish I would have just saved them for that amazing hose reel instead of trashing them.

I basically followed the guide from Detailed Image.
http://www.detailedimage.com/Auto-Detailing-Guide/

When I got the car in April I did two full days and detailed, compounded, polished the whole thing. I'm really careful about washing it and parking it, but it still gets light scratches. This time around, almost 6 months later, I just worked out the scratches that seemed to be new and then glazed, sealed, and waxed.

The one that I hung up was destroyed. I wouldn't trust it. I am going to repair the cracked one I have now and keep it as a spare.
