I second that!! i take about 2 hours to just wash/dry and then another 30 to go through the interior.

My wife has a 2013 Altima and i can usually wash and vacuum it in under 60min and it comes out mint every time with very little effort. The rims are the only annoying part.

I thought the grill on the overland was a pain to clean -- but how in the hell do you clean the Honey Comb grill? There has to be close to 100 holes in the grill the size of your thumb - and the pressure washer NEVER Really gets it clean.

thanks!
After I go to the car wash I go home and get a rag and use my finger inside the rag and go into each hole. Cleans it right up and I'm happy because it's so shiny.

My GC was white in color. It is slowly, but surely, turning a very attractive flat grayish tan color

For starters my girlfriend gets her daisy dukes on with a bikini top and brings me a nice cold craft brew. Then she calls all her gorgeous friends over to help. Then they all get to work detailing my whole jeep while I drink beer.

LOL... I think you've spent too much time up in the Northwoods.

Re: How do you guys clean your "honey comb"?

I don't know how in the hell you guys can wash your vehicles so quickly. Maybe it's just because I'm getting older and pay the price for all the bending, stooping, squatting and rolling around on my shop stool... but washing my Jeep is a 5-6 hour event at a minimum.

What's funny about this was that I normally take it to the car wash down the block. They get it done within a reasonable amount of time (about 15 minutes or so). I decided to do it myself one day. I didn't realize it until I looked at my watch but after I did everything "right" over 2 hours had passed! I didn't know what to think about that, but I do know I take it down the block nowadays and get the parts they miss later.

Re: How do you guys clean your "honey comb"?

The issue with the chrome grill is not the washing part but rather the drying part since water stay in between the honeycomb and when it dries it leaves marks (probably water is also not pure). I was thinking of using a blow dryer, any other suggestions (towel for 100 holes no way).
