Oh! I thought of your next "job"!

Time to polish the underneath!!! :eek:

I decided to lay under the SS and start cleaning it after a friend of mine showed me his exhaust. So, after many stiff necks, and a sore back, I just had to clean mine... I haven't touched it since the back operation though...:o

WHAT??? Clean underneath??? :eek: LOL. I can barely find the time to do a "quick" detail like this. And...I still need to get the interior! If I actually have the time and don't have the wife yelling at me, "are you done yet? When are you coming inside? Are you done yet?" then, I might get to the exhause tips. I've done them before and need to hit them w/ the chrome polish again. They are pretty bad right now. I just hope I get to enjoy the current wash/wax long enough before it rains again. Next on the to do list: Rotate tires, re-adjust rear parking brake, turn front rotors, change front brake pads...and that should do it for now.

Thanks again for the compliments! As for the "yes it's fast...no you can't drive it" license plate frame, I found that at the 02 Super Chevy show and had to have it. It's been on my Camaros ever since.

The best polish I've used is "Zaino". It is the only polish that you can have multiple layers. It is so deep in shine. It was voted the best polish in Corvette fever magazine three years in a row. www.zainostore.com

If you and Moose reccomend it, it sounds like my next purchase will be Zaino! I've tried numerous brands finding some good, some bad. The only reason I use Mothers is because that's what they use on Overhaulin. Well, that and it does shine it up better than anything else I've tried. If Chip Foose uses it on all his cars, it's gotta be good, right? Next wash/wax...Zaino for sure.

Remember Zaino is just wax and not a clener and polisher... I am going to put it on my list of things to try.

I gotcha. The Mothers Step 1 is polish, step 2 is a power wax. I could do both of those, or just the step 1 and then the Zaino. Is the Zaino a liquid wax or is it applied w/ an applicator pad? I'm going to give it a shot on the next wash.

Get ready for a step up in price......I've heard nothing but praise, but it's still expensive to me.

We ought to see if we can get a group buy going or something?

You weren't kidding.....hehe.
Yeah, I just looked into the site. I figured it was going to be a few different types of products....nope. They have everything. I'm going to have to read through all of their products to see exactly what I should get. Mothers is good to me, but this stuff sounds to be far better. Oh boy...now to save up another $116.00 for the entire pack. I don't think I can just buy one type. I'm going to have to do the entire cleaning process.

Tag, if you've checked out Zaino's website, take some extra time to read over the section on application, tips, etc.

It may seem to be too much trouble, but trust me, its VERY easy to use.

Also, if you have any questions, you're able to call Zaino directly. I've spoken to Sal Zaino numerous times. He's a really nice guy and always willing to help.

You can always get in touch with me too.

Sorry man about your car but your son was just marking what would be his one day. All and that MR.Clean really does work good on anything, like black tar marks on your paint from the road it brings that off all and shoes a new pair of shoes that you just bought if they have scraps on them that eraser will bring the marks right off. And they are good at cleaning rims too. All and the best polish I found for Aluminium wheels that will bring them out looking like chrome if not better is PDQ metal polish by Alco, and It brings out crome very very shiny. I know I work at a tractor-n-trailor shop and my boss has 2 show trucks I clean once in a whilebefore he takes them to a show. And all of theses show trucks that I know uses this PDQ polish, And you know if they do that to 18 wheeler wheels they will defently do that to car wheels, beileve me I know I use it on my S-10 and my Camaro wheels and also their tips. It makes them shine like a dimond.

I was going to take pictures of it so I could show ya'll and keep them to show Dylan when he got older...."see what you did to the SS???...haha." But, at the time, I was just freaking trying to get it all off before it really set in there. Mr Eraser is truly some amazing stuff. If anyone on here has never tried it before, give it a shot. It'll remove just about anything.

I didn't look at the date on the first post, thought, "that's not Tag, he don't write like that." Then the comment about the 2 year old, (he had another kid and didn't tell anyone?)

Then I FINALLY look at the date.... and WHO necro'd the thread.

All is right in the world again
