Ain't She Purdy - Again

After reaching 36K on my '03 LT, I decided it was time for some TLC. A good wash, Mequires 3-step clean, polish and wax and she looks good as new.

Re: Ain't She Purdy - Again

Nice job.

So you are supposed to wash these?

36k, washing and wax, need to add that into the service information.

Now was that synthetic wax

Black is so fun to keep clean! But it does look great when it is!

A good cleaning once every 3-4 years is appropriate.

Re: Ain't She Purdy - Again

How old does it have to be for it to be safe to use synthetic wax?
