    fox extended travel remote resivoir coilovers, 14" eibach 600lb coils, All Pro tubular chromoly 1" uniball upper control arms, All Pro expedition leaf packs, 10" bilstein 5150 piggyback reservoir shocks 265/75r16 Goodyear wrangler MT/R kevlars wrapped around 16" Helo 791 gloss black, Mini H1 retrofits with 6000k bulbs, 18" magnaflow w/custom exhaust reroute various decals, Sockmonkey retro hood stripes
    after a prep, or just a good wash (on good days)

    I use zymol Creame, which comes with an applicator, so mats are
    Tub of wax
    applicator
    microfiber #1
    microfiber #

    Apply wax evenly, all in one direction (Don't like circles, even on my wax) as to cover the entire surface
    then use microfiber #1, applying moderate pressure, to wipe the wax, removing "most" of it, but covering entire body panel
    use microfiber #2 to rapidly buff remaining wax to a shine

    When I buff/wipe the wax, I wipe perpendicular to how I put the wax on. So if I covered the hood in vertical "l" lines, I wipe in a horizontal "---" direction.


    All by hand cause I'm an old fashioned pineapple
