    WTF!!! is on my car!!! SON of a bit...

    Yesterday I spent a few hours on washing my car and vacuumimg it etc. It looked good. I woke up late today(stayed up really late) and after getting a drink went outside to look around and admire my car. I walked over to my car and it had this shit that looked like cigarette ashes all over it. I was like WTF????? I looked in the sky and it was all smokey and kinda weird smell outside. Apparently wild fires around Florida and Georgia are causing this white ash to be blown all around!!! Ahhh-the never ending quest to keep a black camaro clean..................... =

    I truly pity anyone that tries to keep their car nice without a garage. I did that crap for 3 years with my vert and a car cover. Constantly washing it, constantly cleaning the wheels, all the details blah blah blah. My current Camaro is a garage queen and hasn't seen a car wash in 9 months now. The luxury of having a garage is priceless.

    Yeah this ash crap is getting out of hand here in fl. Its only getting worse now that there are even more fires here locally and not just goregia anymore. We had a local ls1 meet last weekend and we all went in to eat at a local resturant. It was very nice out eveyones cars were clean we came out and it was smokey as hell and eveyones car was covered in ash.

    Yeah, PS is amongst the top waxes in the world
    No, I've never used it. I've been tempted to get some this year. AG was running a special deal/package with the PS
    As far as paste wax I now have Victoria Concours Wax. Very fine wax I must say, it has decent durability (~2months+)

    Kept my baby in the garage so no ash, but my car is still dirty as hell because of the damn water restrictions. My neighbors are assholes and they'll probably call the cops

    I use two type of glazes for black car
    Red Moose Machine Glaze by Clearkote (RMG) is clearly one of my favorites. It leaves a lovely finish when topped with a carnuaba wax
    Yesterday, I've started using another glaze called Prima: Amigo and I liked it. I used it on a blue metallic vibe. I will post pics of it hopefully later tonight, or tomorrow. I like this particular one because it's what I was looking for. A glaze that will not present any bonding issues when using a sealant. I use sealants a lot

    The last two cars I've done, I've used RMG. Great stuff!

    Here's a link of a guy using RMG on a nice black Mustang...

    I know it's a Stang LOL! but you get the idea

    Another thing about glazes, is that some of them are made to work great on dark colors like, black, red, etc... and others are made to work best on silver, white, yellow, light colors... there's another one called Vanilla Moose Glaze for lighter colors as I've said

    Ever since I've discovered glaze, it has become part of my detailing routine. Although some glazes are intended to fill-in imperfections, it can also level some of it if used properly with a PC
    It definitely complements your detailing job at the end of the day...

    Just wash your car inside the garage with the door down. only evidence will be a little soapy water leaking from under the door, heh heh.

    I agree with BANDITCAR. Inside the garage, doors down, no problem.
