Talking Looking new

went out today and made about a 65% detailing job

on my IRL - did the exterior with the wax and the inside somewhat

and got around to polishing the exhaust pipe tip -

the chrome on this thing is bright and shiny again

also,

installed my new ebrake boot from redline goods

wow it was a little hard to get the top hole over the ring on the bottom -

otherwise it was pulling a little - - -it looks pretty good

to bad they don't do custom floor mats - Redline goods is the best business

I have dealt with this car - anyone thinking about ordering items with them

- you will not be disappointed - they really should receive an award for their

workmanship and customer service

I have the shifter boot and e-brake boot from Redline Goods and I'm happy with that as well. I also bought the leather door insert pieces but was not too pleased with them. There's a lot of work to remove the stock pieces and not a very good way to attach the new Redline Goods leather insert. The OEM pieces are held in with plastic welds so that's difficult to replicate.

I'll be washing and waxing my RL this weekend. I usually wax it once in the spring and then once in the fall.

I was looking at the pics for the door inserts - was thinking that might help to

change the rubber weather strips at the top - I need a new one there


-- in regard to the wax - last night I was coming out from the store

and the in the dark with the street light on the newly waxed surface


was unbelievable - like a blue ice skating rink - wish I could take a night photo

to have captured it.

not really, unless you caked it on there and there's swirls all in it... if that's the case, use a spray detailer to remove the excess

lol, i'll try that - I've got more in areas where I must not get to evenly

otherwise this last time worked pretty good - I may do one more

wax before the cold comes in - Its easy when there'r a few coats on there

fun when not to much work, that is -

the goal isn't to cake it, nor do it when it's hot/cold out. here's the way I do it. if you've seen my car, you know I know what I know which I'm trying to let you know.

1: wash car - 2 bucket method
2: clay bar car
3: wash car - 2 bucket method
4: thoroughly dry car
5: let sun finish drying
6: park car in shaded area (garage)
7: let paint cool
8: glaze
9: polish
10: wax

What the heck is a Clay Bar the car?

Two buckets ?? One for the clean water ?

polish then wax -what is the difference ?

Glaze ?? not even really sure I know what that means


Wow I thought I was a pro...apparently not ....
