Spent 4 hours washing and waxing yesterday...
 
...and somehow I have screwed up my left knee doing it. Hurts to walk. Hurt to drive- my car's a manual, lol

So here I am, not at work, icing my knee and wasting time on C5 :character0264:

Foolish boy. Do what I do. There's an excellent detailer in New Bedford. Did a fantastic job on my car. Check him out using google.

New Bedford? Damnation son, there's civilization closer to me than New Bedford! I'm glad you didn't suggest a detailer on Nantucket

I'll make a bold prediction. Chicago will score more than two goals in four games.

you can cut the time you spend washing and waxing substantially with new products that professional detailers are using these days....there are many sealants that can "wax" your car in 20 min as they are wipe on and walk away like how you use windex.

These are bonified products not "as seen on tv" crap and used by detailers every day...

two of the best are ultima paint guard and blackfire crystal seal. I "wax" my car in 20 min every 2-3 months with Blackfire...here is a recent pic after wiping on:

I wax my car w/ the freshly sacrificed blood of a baby fur seal, nothing better.

I got a kid down the street who I'm about to hire to come help me wash my car. Help is key. I'm just going to get him to do the hard to get to for old people items, like wheels and exhaust. Honestly he's going to cut my whole yard for $20, so I can probably get him for the car for about $10.

Hey, it was a tough move.

Not to be a smartass, but will he wash it in circular scrubbing motions? There's a wrong way to wash a car. Looks like any idiot can do it right but well...it's not so

What's durability like? Also, does it just shine well, or if tree sap gets on my car, will it protect the finish?

it is a polymer sealant - it protects as well if not better than wax and goes on in 15 min every 60 days or so...look at my pic...this car spends it's life under trees...read the links I put up...

Nice OP-

There's no substitute for getting down and spending some time getting everything flawless once in a while. Not something you'd do every wash, but it is necessary every so often.

swiftdog01 06-10-2013 11:35 PM

Way to go!

I sprained my ankle once while washing and waxing my GP GT. Stepped in a hole in the stupid slanted driveway :mad0260:

swiftdog01 06-10-2013 11:38 PM

BTW, if anyone here is in Southeastern MA, and is looking for a good detailing shop, I highly recommend Driven Perfection. They are located in Weymouth, MA. They did an outstanding job on my car.

Thanks Paul. But don't forget, I also fell off your Grand Marquis while surfing.
