lol you must hate those rags!

jk I know you meant damp

A dedicated wheel and tire cleaner will clean much better than soap... especially for tires. Your hot shine tire spray will last much longer on properly prepped tires.

When you clean your tires with a tire cleaner, you will see brown sludge come off. When you keep cleaning and spraying your tire cleaner, eventually you will see white foam only. That is when your tires are truly clean.

If you can, try picking up some Meguiars Gold Class soap. It's the best soap that you can get over the counter in my opinion. Turtle soaps aren't all that great in my opinion.

Looks good man. I'm from Lexington and also in the service. If you want, when I get back from overseas, I can let you try out some Adam's and if you like it I could give you some stuff that I have too much of lol. If you need some pointers too me and a few of my buddies are huge into detailing and usually have a session with a new car every weekend when I'm in the states. Fun and informative.
