Spring Cleaning Weekend

Recommended Posts

Silver so far has been GREAT on the Camaro...looks good, gets insanely filthy and remains silver, and even unlike white, takes more than a lot to show any kind of imperfections. If it weren't for the being silver factor, yeah, it's easy.

Out of every vehicle we've ever had in my memory the one that has shown dirt in the best light has to be the Dark Silver Metallic color on my 07 Impala. The Red on the Malibu ain't bad and neither was the Bronzemist color on our 02 Venture.

That being said, the Slate color is terrible for showing dirt and so was the Navy Blue color of our 05 Venture.

Both of my cars got a quick bath today to wash off the winter's remnants. It's funny how long it takes to just "wash" the Fleetwood compared to the G6!! :lol:

Hah! A little bit...yes. I used to cut my hands every time, washing up & around the rear wheels, with or without skirts in place.

Some cars are quick, some are not. My ex G8, for instance, was quick & easy without many "trap" places, vs. even the Camaro. I think easiest of all that I've had would by my G6 coupe. No trim, no spoiler, open 5-spoke wheels, smooth flowing bubble lines, just quick & easy, and White Diamond making it that much more so.

A clean and well maintained car is a happy car. :)

A few years back when I used to do detailing on the site...hey, I think I still have a website...I had at least 1 or 2 people who were always so pleased afterwards, I'd get calls back "it even runs nicer now!" Heh. Sometimes, sometimes, yes :AH-HA:

Just worked a bit on the Balt...washing Cavvy #2 later....granted, she has seen very little winter. Dust, maybe.....

Silver shows bugs, mud, blood, pretty much anything dark that can get on a car. Small scratches and light dirt dont show up, but the other stuff does.

Mine look fine....

Oh, and DF, she looks good!

  • Kia EV9 First Impression

    Today was a day of change, for almost 2 months I have been on a family home remodel project for my son and today he wanted to go check out the Kia EV9 that is making the rounds of the local Kia dealerships. My first impression was that Kia has nailed the traditional brick on wheels style of SUV that Americans should appreciate. I started at the front of the EV9 wanting to see the Frunk. Surprise, not as big as the F150 Lighting or GM's EV pickups but double, maybe even


    The Jeep Gladitator gets a gentle refresh for 2024

    Jeep is understandably reluctant to mess with success, and the Jeep Gladiator has been one of the brand's greatest success stories in the last decade.  So when it came time to give the Gladiator a nip-tuck, Jeep went in with the gentlest of hands. The biggest visual update is a refresh of Jeep's iconic 7-slot grille, windshield-integrated trail-ready stealth antenna, and seven all-new wheel designs. Inside is a redefined interior with more technology and amenities, including available 12-wa


    GMC Upsizes the Acadia for 2024; New 2.5L Turbo-4

    GMC caused a stir in 2016 when it downsized the Acadia in 2017 from its previous near-Yukon length. That downsize brought the Acadia down to be inline in size with the contemporary Jeep Grand Cherokee.  In the years since, the Grand Cherokee has grown and GMC is matching that with the 2024 GMC Acadia. Inches matter in this class and in that the Acadia gains (back) 10.6 inches in length and 3.2 inches in height. That equates to 80% more space behind the third row and 36% more space behind th
