I don't think they offer that stuff at the car wash I am too short to do the roof and I really want an all over wash/wax.

Makes washing a big vehicle easy!

This makes getting at the top much easier.

A good random-orbital polisher. Get different foam pads for polish, wax, wax buffing covers, and the best results come fast.

Gotta have that paint cleaning clay!

You're good to go!

Re: New summit photos (+question about 1st wash & wax)

I love Zymöl Wax and CarBrite line of soap ... "THE KEY" w Black Car is "RINSE" if it take 1/2 hour to do, then do it..... You should have 4 Wash Mitts(dif.color) :

Need to flush the bucket after each step (Mitts)...
1) TOP, Hood,trunk, Glass
2) Front grill and light, Tail light and Plate + top half wing + top half door
3) Lower wing and half door + lower grill and lower trunk but not molding...
4) Molding(trim) and Weels

Put good car soap in the bocket or dish wash soap if you are going to wax...
I always put soap on the the mitts too w restaurant ketchup bottle alike(Carbrite) to lubricate the wash
Never wash onder the sun and never on a dry surface....
If you "drop" you mitts on the floor (*Dont Use it*) ..... You need a spare one
After using all you mitts and rag clean them in your washing machine w no "softener" and air dry on a rack after..
Drying the w Air and the left over w Micro Fiber

For Waxing "Your Baby" all black plastic need to be Tape w Painter green Tape......

On my new Green Overland I use Wizards Shine Master auto polish. Easy to apply and fantastic shine!
