Week 5
A few weeks later I had time to do some more paint work. This included a 3-step polish/wax job. I started with Meguiars Step-1 Polish, moved to the paint cleaner solution, and finally applied the wax. You can see in the first picture the immediate results of the first step. It was a somewhat arduous 3 hour process, but there was no denying that it was a good idea. It is amazing how much better you can feel when your car is in prime is like having a weight lifted from your chest, especially if the car was very shabby before!
