    Is winter detailing bad?

    will using a r.o. [porter cable] in the dead of winter react any differntly from what ive been doing all sumer? My garage never gets below 40* and heats to about 62* fairly quickly, My car wont move from november to march so I would like to spend about 3-5 weeks detailing.LOL. I recently got the car and only used my polisher this summer.Im guessing it will take longer to get the clear up to a workable temp.I plan on doing the same things, just more thouorgh. clay, polish,polish,polish,wax-x5. Im hoping that youguys tell me of any winter time issues,if any. Thank U

    I think you'll be fine.
    Crank up some good tunes and the heat and you will be golden.

    Show pics when you are finished.

    Last winter I spent polishing my exhaust and cleaning the whole underside of my car.

    I'm north of you and I keep my garage at 40* all winter unless im working in there, then its at 60-65.

    My life is a

    Might take a few more passes, or at least a cut then a polish pass to see improvement as the cool paint will not want to clean up as quickly.
