I suppose I could add some pics of the car up here.

Enjoy









I'll have to get some pics this spring after I get my springs on.

That is sexy!! clean and my second choice of color. Looks nice and will look awesome with springs. Just dropped mine before the snow flew.

Thanks. The springs won't drop the car very much (went with the pedders ones). I don't have any pics of it after I tinted the windows but that will be for the spring shoot too.

You tinted you windows finally! Did you do the front sides too? I really like when the front sides are done, it gives me a nice feeling of being in my own little cave or underground or something, private. Smile

I use Mothers products for the most part. For washing I have used Meguiar's Gold Class Car wash but I'm going to be switching to the Mothers California Gold car wash this year. For a the paint on a full detail I use Mothers Clabyar (or Mothers California Gold Pre wax cleaner), Mothers California Gold Sealer/Glaze, and then Mothers California gold Pure Carnauba wax. In between major waxing I use Mothers Showtime instant detailer after washes and sometimes Mothers Reflections spray wax.. I also have the powerball mini and powermetal to keep the wheels shiny. For the tires I use Meguiar's Endurance gel since it doesn't seem to sing much and it lasts quite a while.

For the inside I use a terry/microfiber cloth and a spray bottle to wipe down all of the plastic (NO ARMOUR ALL!!!) and wipe the leather off before I apply leather conditioner. For the leather conditioner I use Meguiar's Gold Class Rich leather wipes which work quite well. I like to wait to drive for a while afer I apply it as it seems to take a while to soak in. For the windows I was just using a regular glass cleaner that I'm not too happy with. I think I might try a foam glass cleaner this year and see how that goes.

Sorry about the long list. If I do a full detail it takes me about 4 hours. But a regular wash takes me just under an hour.

Yeah, I did the side ones but not very dark. It does make it feel more closed in though which is nice.

I just use the gm acdelco foaming glass cleaner it works great. Be sure to stay away from glass cleaners ie windex that contain ammonia, that will eat away at your tint.

Looks awesome, I've never seen LBM have such a deep reflection!

I can't wait to have them installed either! It sounds like they haven't shipped yet though which sucks.

Shipping and a place to install them. The sway bar and steering rack spacers are on their way now but no word on whether the Pedders are still backordered or if they are shipping now. We haven't gotten possession the house yet so the new garage isn't available and my bike and car are stored in the same side of the garage at my parents house so there is no room to get the springs on. It will be another month at least before I will be able to install them.

I'm just as anxious as you are though!

Yea, armour all is the devil. I like Eagle Nano Interior cleaner for plastics and such, and Eagle 20/20 for glass. Streak free every time with no haze. Although, you can't seem to get 20/20 in Canada anymore, O'Reilley's in the states always has it. I have a small stockpile in the garage right now. Some 4 bottles. Smile
