It pulls all the iron deposits out of the pain then then you clay bar it. Look it up on YouTube and you can see people using it.

Do you use the spray on one or the one you use in a foam gun? What do you do about the smell? I'm in a townhouse so I doubt I can use it in my drive but I'm not sure where else to use it at.

I would go to my parents house to wash it but they have a curb which looks like it would scrape a lot. The old car would scrape at times and this one sits lower.

Still got rules to follow and it doesn't help the hose connects at the front of the garage behind all the storage.

That place seems to do that. If I'm in a rush I will run through it but rare

I have a drift innovations camera that ive been meaning to bring out, but still havnt ordered a suction cup mount for it yet. But I also mainly bought mine for motorcycle riding. I think the gopro would be better for cars

Laguna on 59 and Ogden is good. Decent for like a quick $5 wash or anything. And it's funny how all the little kids that dry the cars drool when me as my roommate pull up lol! I heard finish line on 75th is good too. But we should try and find a group rate for detailing. I def need buffing and wax this year and clay barring! My buddy details but it's soooo expensive!

Btw not sure if I saw you AWD but I saw a SWP sti on Ogden close to the 83 exit I was on my bike with my riding buddies! I gave a thumbs up lol!

Tell you what guys. Since I'm on good terms with Erik the manager, put a list together of what you would like doing and I will stop by and see him and see if we can work on some group deal for us.

I haven't been out by 83 for a long time. Usually around the mall area as I live and work within 5 min of it.

Musta been someone else! But then I def saw you the other day on aurora and Ogden by the jewel! That jewel is like my back yard. I really wanna figure out who the dude is with the sti at the Lexus dealership on aurora is by the menards.

Yeah. I was probably by Ogden and the jewel. I have no idea who that is at Lexus. But he did choose a good color.

Still havnt ordered yet looking to see If I can ship the shortblock to the shop directly or If I have to pay more to ship it to a personal address then deliver it myself.

On terms of the group order, i think it'd be cool to get like a group deal on like monthly washes or something. Just my $0.02

If you want a good detail hit up Lustr Detailing. You are going to be paying $300-500, but for a once a year detail it's worth it. This is not your typical wash and normal glaze buff with no cut that you will pay $150 for. This guy actually goes in and corrects everything to the finest detail.

I personally just spent over $300 on a PC 7424 with pads and polishes. Came out nicely for a minor buff I did last summer. Going to do the full car this spring for both of my cars.

Clark's detail in Naperville is really good too. You will be paying a pretty penny, but they are amazing.

I just spent the entire 3 day weekend detailing. It took about 15 hours total. Hand scrubbing the tiny orange rust dots from metal dust took at least 8 hours. Then a thick hand wax and buff. I noticed some paint chips down to metal. She's pretty, but I sure am sore today. I think I'd still rather do everything myself than trust someone else to get it right, let alone NOT cause swirls.
