    Default Just a dumb question...

    Ok so i am planning on doing the whole wash, wax, detail routine tomorrow sense it will be the nicest day of the week. But then i remembered i have a cut-out billet grille, light bar, and chrome door handles and fuel door that ive been meaning to install.

    Would you to the installations first and then the detailing, or vice versa?
    Or mabey even washing, then installation, and then detailing?

    With school and work i doubt i will be able to do the add-ons and detailing/cleaning in one day so they will probably be two seperate days. So i obviously dont want to wash then wax a day or two later.
    Decisions, decisions haha

    Let me know what you would do.

    LMAO!!!! Good to see I'm not the only smarta$$ on here..

    Personally, I would wash it first to get all the grime off before putting anything on it.
