    Nice! What do you use for wax/polish? It's hard to get a really good shine on white, but I can see you did it!

    Actually, all I did was wash it. I used Meguiar's Car Was with Carnuba Wax in it, and one of those sponges with the microfiber cloth on it. And some elbow grease. Made sure to keep it all wet until I was done then dried it with a microfiber cloth.

    This is what happened the day after I washed them...


    At least the Vette is in the garage. And we're supposed to get six inches today. At least it never stays more than a day or two here, but so much for the mountain drive I was hoping for today... :-(

    Nice!!! Looks spiffy!!

    The last time I washed and detailed 2 on the same day (when I was still young enough to do it) we had one of the worst storm fronts come through I can ever recall. After a couple of hours of that nonsense, they looked like they hadn't been washed in months.

    I took the ol' LS2 by the car wash and washed the engine off. I'm surprised it got it looking so good. No brush or even touching involved.
