Cool FRESH PICS OF RUBY..

Hello Camaro family, missed you folks, been down and out for a while but I am better now. I washed my baby Sunday, shamied her dry and pulled her out in the sun for a couple hours to make sure she was dry, then hit her with the clay bar and then put a coat of my Geoff Bodines waxing frenzy wax on her and micro fibered her to a great shine.Love it, so easy to do. Here are some pics. Enjoy, hope they turn out OK..I'm not the best at taking pics..

If your uploading your pictures to photobucket you need to change the setting to save them as larger pictures on photobucket. I think that's what is happening with your pictures.

You also need to set your image quality on the camera to a higher setting.

Thanks John, I have the camera set on the highest quality setting, they look great when I save them on my computer, but when they get to photobucket, they are smaller. I will check my photobucket settings..

Large microfiber waffle weave towel.


With a recent good quality wax a lot of water will wash right off the vehicle with the "sheet rinsing" method.

Then use compressed air if you have it and blow the car down a little and dry.

If not just dry with a good detail spray to avoid any water marks.


The car looks great, just tring to help you keep it for years to come

Thanks man, I will get the material I need to keep her dried off correctly so I can keep her shining better than new. Appreciate the info that I wasn't aware of..
