Otherwise I will have to remove it and probably apply more wax. Maybe I will attempt this on the Camaro in a few weeks but I think I can just use M105 on that as its paint is in way better shape than my trucks was.
Sounds like lots of work

Good morning crew. Today I will come home, give Ruby a whore bath (waterless wash) and get her ready to drive to work tomorrow & to a cruise-in right after work. It will be nice to get my permagrin on again. I miss driving Ruby but am glad she is not getting so many miles & so much damage from the daily commute & exposure. I hope it is not such a taxing day at work today. Have a good one crew. We are on the downslope now!

Ok I had to do a little extra buffing to clean up the Zaino clear seal but overall I am happy with the detail results on the big red Silverado. I snapped a few pics this evening.Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1371778114973.jpg

Nice lookin' Silverado Zandron! Ruby got her whore bath & a little spit & polish. We are all ready for our drive in to work in hte morning & then to a local cruise-in. It does not look like any of my club folks will be joining me but that's okay. I will be there (unless the weather turns sour). This time of year most any afternoon/early evening a thunderstorm can pop-up. I still have a little work to do though so, later crew.

Well, I chickened out on driving Ruby. Thunderheads were already buliding before I left home. I will watch the radar & if it will be nice this afternoon/evening & will go home, get Ruby & still go to the cruise-in. Right now here is a batch of pretty heavy rain just hanging out right in the area where the cruise-in is. We shall see.

Drove over to a nearby cruise and I'm the only one here. Guess the 101* temp is too hot for everyone else.

Sorry to hear that Diane. Hope she will be on the mend quickly. I made it to the cruise-in & it was pretty nice. I am in process of making a thread about it. I'll come back & post a pic of 2 here & the link when I finish.

Good morning gang. I slept in this morning and in a way it felt good but now I am paying the price. I always get a headache and back ache when I sleep late and it does not really matter what time I go to bed. Today I will get a good work out. We plan to wash & way my huge truck. Mike's Yukon is rough to wash/wax, but this truck is about 2 1/2 feet longer & taller too. I will be glad to have it done and I actually enjoy doing it but I will be TOTALLY spent when I am done. The Camaro wears me out so I know the truck will be worse. It is also going to be very hot & humid. But at least we are doing it together. I also need to put some fertilizer on my flower bed. I will be burning more calories than I consume today for sure! I hope everyone has an enjoyable Saturday.

Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes. Time will tell, she's pretty fragile. Hope it's a great Camaro day for you all!

Finished my yard work before it became blazing hot. Going to be 106* today. Had the garage open when something caught my eye. The front of the Camaro didn't look right.

After looking over the front bumper cover and the mirrors, it appears I was driving behind some vehicle that was leaking gear oil. The hood only had 3 or 4 spots as did the windshield, suppose that is why I didn't notice it until today.

Didn't want to wash it in the sun, so I used some Waterless Wash, then followed with Detail Spray. I'm relieved the paint cleaned up just fine.

Doesn't pay to drive behind other people.

Might cruise on over to our 67th Ave Cruise Night later.
