Spring Cleaning Car Detailing Frenzy!

Staying home sick from work is can have harmful effects to the checkbook. I spent most of the evening reading through www.autopia.org (a great website may I add) and now have caught another bug - the detailing bug.

I initially went to the website to find out how to clean my gray leather interior which is starting to look somewhat dirty. I got my answer, but I ended up learning a ton of new detailing information that I didn't know previously. It's a great website for how-to's and reviews on detailing products.

As a result, I went and bought a bunch of stuff off the web. Purchase #1 was a Porter Cable 7424 Orbital Buffers for $119 from Coastal Tools which includes a 6" Hook & Loop Contour Pad and 6" Counterweight so I can dual utilize the PC7424 as a sander. The used PC7424's are going for over $100 on eBay, so buying this new one was a deal.

Purchase #2 was the Extreme Detailers Essential Products Kit from Chemical Guys. Normal price of the kit is $227.95 but they had a special ending Monday (03/20) for $120. This link will probably be good until someone notices that the expiration date has passed.

Purchase #3 is an eBay bid on a Mac Tools brake stool:

I'll probably use all this stuff once and bury in the garage...

Story of my life. I have purchased more shit for my house/garrage that has only had a one time use. But I must say some of those items came in handy years down the road. I think the PC will be a good investment though.

Actually there's a bunch of car guys in the family - sons, brother in laws, etc. I'm sure this stuff will get plenty of usage.

I just found a guy that comes to our office park, does the interior, washes, waxes, buffs for $55. I watched him and his partner for 2.5 hours last week go over and over and over my X3. And wow it looks fantastic! Now the rain came through and got me spotted again.

Anyway he has the orbital buffer and uses a Maguires liquid wax that took out a ton of light scratches in the clear coat. I have a few deeper ones that he's gong to work on next time around.
