Just thought I'd show some pics of some clean cars. This is purely gratuitous on my part. This is what three hours and a ton of elbow grease can accomplish.
First pic is the wife's ride, with some before and after wheel insets - amazing what Eagle One Wheel and Tire will do for those rims and the brake dust.
Here's my 325is - shiny and clean again. (Yes, I know I need some clear corners on there =)
And finally, my "misfit" mistress - 1968 Mustang GT/CS. Should be my Sunday car, but she's not starting right now. Some minor electrical glitch that I'm saving up to fix. D'oh! At least she's clean again.
uh emission...grow the f*ck up. This is called the wash and detail forum. He posted his cars here because he recently washed them and wanted to show his work. Perhaps they could have been put in the Pic Showroom forum, but regardless there's no reason to attack him like that. You want to talk about worthless contribution? YOUR post was a worthless contribution, and has been reported.
Laxiepoo, all three look great! I can tell you really care for your cars well. Good luck getting the Mustang running again!

MrRogers and friends, thanks! I have a lot of fun washing and caring for the rides. Plus it keeps me out of the wife's hair on Sunday mornings =)
AZ325Ci, here's what I have in my bucket
- Maguiars Gold Class Car Wash
- Soft car wash mitt
- Armor All on the tires
- Eagle One Wheel and Tire on the rims
- "The Absorber" chamois (shammy) for drying
That Absorber is by far the best chamois I've ever had. $8 at Walmart can't be beat. Got it on a recommendation from a friend, and I swear, it picks up every bead of water from paint and glass - I didn't even need Windex after drying!
Two of the quality brands I've heard of on these forums are Maguiars and Mothers products. I've had good experience with Maguiars so far. YMMV.
I can't wait to use a clay bar solution on my car soon. I've got a couple nasty spots of sap in the paint that I'm hoping to remove.
Around the web I've seen in some full procedures for washing, waxing, claying, cleaning, and pampering cars, along with product recommendations. Perhaps we should start a sticky thread on that here.
