Jeep SRT8s. First Joe (crookster) showed up to school me in detailing the Jeep. We ran to Advanced Auto Parts and picked up some supplies and set to work on my Jeep.
First up engine bay
! So it wasn't as bad as say Nathan's (!) but it sure does look so much better now. Joe has made me swear his secret . . . but WOW
[must add engine pic!]
Next, wheels + tires
Meguiar's Hot Rims All Wheel Cleaner on the rims + a wheel brush for the inner rim. We used Bleach White on the tires to remove previous tire shine residue.
By this time Nathan (Boom Boom) decided it was too nice to work and pinged me via BB. And while we waited for Nathan to arrive we washed the Jeep with Meguiar's Gold Class. So at this point, Ryan (Devssrt) pinged me too and the invite went out to him too. Nathan and Ryan arrived within minutes of each other. By this time, Joe was already 1/2 into his tutorial on claybar (using Meguiars Smooth Surface Clay Kit).
While this was going on, Ryan tutored me on cleaning and polishing the exhaust tips. He used a Mother's PowerBall + Mothers Wheel polish (I think). WOW!
[need tip pic]
Once the clay smoothing process was complete, Joe started with the wax. He applied, I dried. Then the last step, NXT Tech Wax.
So my Jeep moved from the driveway and then Joe and Ryan shared the driveway to wash down and detail their Jeeps. Nathan did his at the curb. I ordered 2 pizza pies and I think there's maybe 1 beer left in my fridge in the garage
but it was a fun day for sure.
At the end, Mike (kwick8) dropped by for a visit too. My wife was out most of the day but she came home to pick up some things before heading out and we could see her LOL-ing in the car as she tried to find a place to park.
Next time I'll have the 2nd hose connection setup so we can do more/faster
I need to go snap some pics to fill in this post. I only grabbed like one or two as I was busy most of the day.
Oh and Joe destroyed my curb too!
