Spring shine
2 Attachment(s)
I loved the shine I got with running the JEEP through a touchless car wash and topping off with Chemical Guys P-40 Detailer with Carnuba Wax, which is easy and fast to apply.

Re: Spring shine
First time I have heard someone say they like the shine after driving through a car wash ;-P but either way the Jeep looks great!

Re: Spring shine
Looks good, but touch-less washes use very harsh detergents which will strip the wax you apply to your paint. It also does not remove the dirt anywhere near as well as a hand wash. Just look at a white car that goes into a touch-less wash. It still has a film of dirt on it. You're going to end up rubbing that find dirt and film into your paint and swirl/scratch your clear coat.

If you don't have access to a hose I'd recommend Optimum No Rinse car wash. It works great and will not scratch your paint. Many pro detailers use this stuff. I use it since it's faster than using a hose.

Here is quick video of how to use it.

Then you can top it with optimum's spray wax every few washes. I don't work for optimum but I switched to their products awhile ago and have loved all their stuff.

Yes, the car is not totally clean after touchless car wash. Supposedly the P-40 detailer removes lightly soiled paint without scratching, but I will try the Optimum products you mentioned. Thanks!

+1 on the Optimum No Rinse. It is a great product. I use a waffle weave microfiber towel to dry the truck and blot with it rather than wipe. I am always amazed that the towel is clean when I do this. Very counter-intuitive but very effective! :thumbsup:

+2 for ONR, its an incredible product.

Re: Spring shine
ONR in winter -- in garage. If weather-permitting, I still prefer a hose and 2 buckets.
