    Gave her a good scrub down and detail this morning. Haven't gotten to the interior yet but I will later this afternoon. Kids need to get out of the house as do I.

    1) Wash
    2) Adam's Hand Polish
    3) Adam's Brilliant Glaze
    4) Adam's Americana Wax

    First time I've tried the Americana Wax. I normally use the Buttery Wax but I think I'm switching permanently. No clay bar needed today. I stay in the driveway while wifey takes the street. Under the trees. :cool:

    Technically, it'd be "That's thing..." or "That is thing..." :boink:

    That depends on where you're surfing, OC or SD, and whether or not there's any swell. How's the water temp?

    Yeah, apparently after I got my door fixed and repainted, the guy at the body shop told me I couldn't wash or wax it for 90 days.

    Doc went for me since she was off work that day and I wasn't, she never asked why. LOL

    I'm assuming it's from the chemical release from the new paint. Waxing would trap them and dull the finish over time IIRC from my time working at a body shop

    Truck looks amazing. What did you do to the taillights? Tint or spray maybe. Also what bumper is that up front if you don't mind?

    I figured it had to be something along those lines. I went all winter without washing the tundy, I'm sure this time around'll be fine too LOL

    Just the sight of @smslavin 's truck makes me want to go out and give mine a nice wash 'n' wax!
