No, I don't wash my car nude but I did wash it as soon as I got home to get the bugs off...

Haus,
Looks great, beautiful car and beautiful job detailing. Run sounds like a lot of fun. When you get a chance, how did you polish out the car specifically? Griot's #3 then BOS or what?

1) Wash & chamois dry
2) Bug & Tar remover (as necessary)
3) Clay
4) #3 polish overall (#2 & #1 in some scratched areas)
5) Speedshine (to remove polish residue)
6) Wax

Must have been in pretty nice condition. My 540 took more work.

Well, it is new to him. Not just detailing, but a "getting to know you" exercise.

I guess he had to get aquainted properly. What a way to do it! I'm sure the car is loving her new owner. :thumbup:
