    Ran Chebby through the car wash. Still a lot of winter crud residue left behind. Hand washed in the driveway with buckets of water because my landlord keeps the outside water turned off til mid June.
    Time to wax and polish the chrome. So much chrome.

    @MTgirl Weesa ...

    You should look into getting Chebby either Ceramic or Graphene coated , it'll be easier to keep clean

    I've thought about it. Especially since he spends all his time outside, I know the sun and weather take a toll on the paint.
    I did the car wash today - power washer wand and broom/brush. Then home and washed by hand with sponges. As I was waxing I noticed that the wax was sticking to little flecks of something sprayed all down the drivers side doors. I ran my fingernails over the area and picked up something black. Not sure if its road tar or what. As soon as my landlord turns on our outside water I think Chebby is going to get a wash with bug and tar remover over EVERYTHING and then a clay bar. Might look into the ceramic coating at that point.

    Try to not use a brush even a hand mitt , these can causes scratches on the clear coat . Even using the 3 bucket wash technique there's still a chance on dirt / debris contaminating the brush or wash pad

    Best way would be by using a foam cannon to apply the soap

    thanks. nearly had to threaten to quit to get it but that wasn't my favorite option.
    now to get the planning finalized and the packing can begin!

    how long do those last vs a professionally applied coating? I like Mother's stuff, thats what most of my waxes and polishes are. They seem to last and aren't super expensive
