Default So i'm in a bad mood

Going to try and cheer myself up by giving my moms blazer a wash, clay and wax. There go several hours of my life

I'm usually not so constructive when I'm in a foul mood. Usually more destructive =

I just used this stuff on my uncles truck and his boat that is amazing. He waxes his boat about once a year with it and it beads and shines forever in the salt water. I'll be taking a bottle home with me to try on the truck and the miata, have to get it at the marina though so I can post the name.
I'm a big Zaino fan though.

I like Meguiars stuff as well. My mom gave me a G100 Dual Action Polisher last year for my birthday and I just started using it. Spreading wax with this thing is the ****.
They have pretty sick deals on them here

You guys ever check out the Meguiars forums?

I like the Autopia forums too

OMG so much more work that I expected. I used half a bar on her roof. OMG it was like taking your wet hand and putting it in sand. Thats how bad the roof was. OMG I'm tired and I have not even begun to put the wax on. At least the wax is quicker than the claybar. Although I wax by hand, autopia and the PC is looking real good about now

yeah really. I still cant get over how much dirt was embedded in the paint on the roof of the car. It looked like someone had taken some pepper and shaken it on the roof. The clay was full of little black flecks.
