trying to step up my car-cleaning ability...

This is one of the subsections of the forums I've been reading up the most on since becoming a member of C5. I'm slowly trying to get better and buy better detailing items. For instance, I recently got Adam's kit of their mitt, great white drying towel, and car shampoo. Also picked up their window cleaning and sealing kit. Next up, I want to buy some wheel woolies and buttery wax. Little by little. But thanks to reading up posts by Todd, Junkman, and CamaroDreams, I think my cars have been looking better! Took some time to wash my Camaro and my old beater Corolla on Wednesday and Thursday. The Camaro had just seen a long highway drive through rainy conditions, and the Corolla hadn't been cleaned in a long time. Love my beater Corolla though, it's taken me all the way to north/south parts of the country without a single complaint. Pics below. First two of the Camaro are before wash.
