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

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:
