Car has been apart for about a month, finally got it all back together and took 2 days to get it all clean. Just in time for a show tomorrow.

I washed the car with Dove soap to remove the wax and when I get done with this beer I'm gonna start to clay bar it. Can't wait to get rid of all the swirl marks and scratches.

Got the car clay barred and started on the hood which I had painted awhile ago and wasn't really happy how it came out. Here's a pic before using M-205. I should have done this awhile ago.

spent close to 10hrs on getting the car back to like new with the paint. 1st was washing the car & removing the wax then I clay barred it, next I used maguiars 205 with a rotary buffer, followed by maguiars #9. finally I used maguiars carnauba gold wax. came out looking like it did when it rolled off the assembly line. no more swirl marks or scratches, just a sea of VR!!!

I really don't have a timeline for any mod I do, just try and spread them out so I don't end up divorced. Cam is next on the to do list tho.

I'm with ya. I've been wanting to put a cam in for awhile now but other things had to come first, like remolding the kitchen. That's done so it's my turn.
"happy wife- happy life".
