I hate detailing also.

However, my Classic is looking pretty good right now. I washed it yesterday, big time. Then washed it again this morning. After that, I used the Meguires 3-part system. Except I added an extra step. Paint Cleaner, then I did a Meguires clay bar, then Polish, and next is the Wax. It is sitting in my shed right now until the sun starts to drop. Too damn hot out there, and I needed a break.

I'll wax the crap out of it this evening and take some pics in the morning.

One other thing I should mention is for chip-cover on KH3 black cars, or on the black windshield wiper arms of any B13. Sharpie Fine Point Black Paint Pen. After the Paint Cleaner, I went around the whole car and touched, dabbed, any chips where the primer was visible. Including on my windshield wiper arms. It is very easy, much easier than a damn touch-up paint bottle with that little brush. Worked like a charm, from 5-feet those chips are virtually invisible.


Nearly ready. Gotta touch up the interior and clean up the bay.
