last couple of days were pretty busy. started full 3 step paint correction and will finally get the Adam's ceramic coating done!

time to break out the detailing car!


CG's Maxi Suds along with CleanSlate to remove all the old sealants and waxes


if you're not using the 2 bucket method technique you should btw these 5 gallon dollies are freakin awesome rather than carring the buckets around



when it comes to wheels i never used a dedicated wheel cleaner until now. i usually just use the the Maxi Suds to clean the wheels. but i'm gonna start off with CG's wheel cleaner and if i like it maybe try something else afterwards. but for the most part i'm actually impressed with how wheel cleaners make cleaning much easier



clay bar time! i've tried them all so with experience i don't think it matters which brand is better as they all do the same function...remove contaminants


now with the car up in the air i did a last minute thing. 3 years ago i painted the barrels on my AG's black



this time i did them with a flake bronze. this is the same paint i used on the strut bar and cross bars


also before i started the paint correction i wanted to finally get the GFORCE IC installed! tho it looked nice as wall decor it was time for it to find it's new home!


now after reading the forums on the install and watching countless Youtube videos this was not complicated at all as some have stated. install was very easy and straight forward. this thing fit like a glove. not a whole lot of wiggle room if i may say. i did use my jack to help lift the IC into place which made things a lot easier. what a big difference in size



and nestled into her home BTW the plastic covers doesn't fit back into place from what other's have said



okay onto the paint correction. here's my weapon of choice...TORQ15DA! for products used CG's VLINE along with CG's Hexlogic pads orange and white my previous DA polisher was Harbor Freight which did the job but burned through pads


after 12 hours which in the detailing world is nothing i got the paint correction done. usually a full correction takes anywhere from 24hrs+ easily. thoughts on the TORQ15DA...works great! doesn't generate heat like my HF. ergonomically feels good in my hand. noise is very low and it's got a nice digital display.








so i'm drained! taking a day off but probably Monday i'll start applying Adam's Ceramic Coating
