Default Spring Cleaning...

The last week or so I have been doing some detailing on my truck. I have been using Eagle One Wheel Cleaner, Orielly's degreaser, Meguiar's clay bar and Meguiar's scratch 2.0.
The wheels have been a bit of a project, but they are coming clean. Not only have I had to remove the wheels but I have had to scrub them down quite a bit. It took quite a bit of elbow grease, but they look great.
Under the hood I did a basic degreasing and spray down. Not a whole lot of work but it looks quite a bit better.
I started using the clay bar and scratch 2.0 on the hood and it already looks really awesome. After just a little work the hood feels smooth and the scratches are coming out.
Once I am done I will post pics of how good she looks.

I have been lazy for too many years and it ended up in the state it is in.

If you want to bum Momma Bear out do your wheels in the dish washer,seemed like a good idea at the time. Mr, Labattt may have helped.
