So here is what we are going to do

-vacuum interior
-clean all interior surfaces
-wash car
-use rim and tire cleaner
-dry car
-rainX on windows

Is there any thing else we can do to make the car better and more clean? do you think this is a good plan?
Great idea,

There's nothing better than seeing a clean and spotless Camaro! How did it go?

Spend 50$ on a king canopy to detail yourself.

+1. Otherwise, I wouldn't not wash a black car in direct sunlight...unless it's a cold day. Find shade. Strip it, clay it, correct clear coat, seal it (especially if you don't have a garage to park it in). You need to get that paint protected asap.
