Post pics of your clean ride after CF3

Three days of cleaning. I did Adams swirl mark remover, machine polish, buttery wax, detail spray, undercarriage cleaner, leather and upholstery cleaner, glass cleaner, VRT, vacuum, gunk foamy engine cleaner, changed oil, ( Mobil 1 and filter) changed differential oil in my DSS 9' ( Lucas non synthetic )


I had to take my USW wheels off due to incorrect rear offset. So, I'm back to sporting my CCW's till I get my new rear wheels from Bismarck.

Wow. Guess I'm the only one to clean their car from the ride home? I saw people cleaning their car everyday at the hotel! Lol

Washed and waxed mine yesterday. Interior today. It sucks that work gets in the way of taking care of my baby.

How did you clean the undercarrage, it looks really good.

Drove my car up on ramps, then used my Craftman creeper to save my back, one rag soaked in Adams undercarriage cleaner and one clean and dry. Wipe with cleaner, then wipe dry. Took a few hours, but turned out nice.

I think that spoiler is one of the most functional rear spoilers for a Camaro that i've seen other than a wing, and I don't like wings. That should be OEM.

Gee, I thought I had cleaned my car but looking at those pics Kevin I still need to do some work. But here are some pics I took today - cleaned it on Sunday so it did get driven a little bit before the pics.

New tags were here when I got back - was hoping they would come in before the Fest.

How high off the ground do the ramps get the car?

Looks great. It gets about a good foot, if not a little more. I was able to creep all around under my car with the front on the ramps and the rear on jack stands. I got them at autozone. They are plastic and stackable.

Mine hasn't been washed since the fest. I'm not scared to admit it.

It's getting a bath tomorrow before I head back to school though.

Going to try and clean mine in the mourning, working 6 days a week and having to go out of town gets in the way of cleaning the babe. Kevin your car looks awesome and sounded great at the CF3.
