    Wash the exterior, then under hood, dry, then vac, clean rims, do windows. It's a lot of work. Then usually it rains in like 2 days

    I agree, and since I have a black car it really only looks good for a day. Especially since I don't have a garage to park it in, but once you're finished with all those hours of hard work it looks real good

    Wax should be very easy to apply.
    Most waxes are fairly simple to remove as well. There isn't any reason to work in a wax.
    Just a VERY thin coat that covers everything.

    A little or a lot...it will look the same. So use a little. When I order a new batch of Victoria's I will show how little wax I use to cover the entire car.

    I would take a dry terry cloth everyday to get the dust off. Black always seems to be a dust magnet.

    I don't use terry cloth anymore. Well....maybe when polishing my wheels.

    Had to get rid of her. It was either pay rent or pay car. I had three other cars at the time so she had to leave. Plus she was expensive. $585/month plus $275 for insurance.

    Went 3 years without a TA. Thus the reason I LOVE my Eleanor. She filled an empty spot in my heart.

    Prima

    Victoria's



    Nothing but microfiber towels for my car.
    Hell...even on the Grand Am. Just not the good ones.

    The TTII's get polished with microfiber now as well.
