So I'm clay barring the Cobra and putting as many coats of the new Meguire's NXT stuff on. Here's where I'm at so far.

Before anything, how dirty she is(though on white it's really hard to take pics of how dirty it is):

Wow Mike, what an amazing job. The car looks fantastic! Now, really, tell us how much "work" was involved? It looks like you worked on it for a week or two, lol. Your arms sore today? If you had to do that for a living, how much would you charge - that's usually my "test" for how hard I worked on a project.

Hope it stays that clean for a long time now! :cool:

Thanks Mike. I took about 6 hours to do it all, taking time out to eat lunch, post the process on the internet and just taking my time to get it all done. If I were to do it for a living.......I may charge someone say......$85-100 for it....:dunno:......if I did the same to their car as I did to mine.

It's Meguire's new wax/polish. Really easy to apply and take off and makes a really good shine.

If you're serious then PM me and we'll get something going. Or I'm sure we can do it closer to Stangbang so it'll be nice and shiney for that. :thumbsup:

I was amazed at what a little brushing with soapy water did the fenderwells. After it's dry, hit the inside black portions with some tire foam and they really shine!!!! :thumbsup:

I don't really plan to take my wheels off to clean my car :eek: I was pulling your leg. I'll leave the wheel removing to you guys! :yup: :banana:
