    Talking detail

    even tho im a die hard off roader im also a detail freak! lol i no how weird is that? i love gettin my sliverado dirty as hell then the second i get back on the road im havin seizures cuz people are looking n its not clean(which is prolly y theyre lookin in the first place!lol)! But i hand wash mine at least once a week usually tthursday cuz i like to cruise on friday so gotta b lookin good 4 the ladies! lol. but first i take it and pressure wash the whole thing at a local wash station then i drive back to the house and hand wash it top to bottom twice, tires, wheels, door jams, wheel wells, any crack or crevice really. then i use s speacial detail compound from turtle wax then use turtle wax ICE to wax the whole truck and after all of that is dun i armorall the tires and completly clean the entire inside carpet floor mats windows everything then armorall all of that lol then it usually stays clean 4 3 or 4 days till i put it in the dirt again and all of this repeats itself lol! im gunna die doin it one day lol!

    Once a week I hand wash the Yukon I have a pressure washer to get the bugs off, I dry with a chamois then I use Eagle One wax as you dry http://www.eagleone.com/pages/produc...=1091&cat=5010 this stuff is incredible I finish the job with Meguires high gloss http://www.meguiars.com/?tire-care/H...s-Tire-Coating on the tires and invisible glass http://www.invisibleglass.com/ on the windows.

    Pretty much...

    Hand wash daily weather permitting( touch free car wash 2 X's p/week during winter when I can't do it myself ).

    Cleaner Wax, Polish( sometimes the colored variety to help with any scratches ), Premium Wax( Carnuba ) once p/ month once temps hit 50 degrees. Light weight quality wax every other week as a touch up also weather permitting. Once temps drop below 50 I will run it through the touch free car wash 1 p/week until I can no longer wash it myself and then it is covered by the 2X's p/week mentioned above.

    Vacuumed almost daily year round barring wet weather that day. Windows washed 2-3 X's p/week. Dash and door panels treated 1 p/week & dusted daily( TIP - Pledge "Grab-It" untreated dusting cloths work GREAT to remove dust and such from your interior trim/dash ).

    Literally my vehicles look as good as the day they were brand new, if not better, even 3-4 years down the road when I sell them. Now, this is not to say my truck is NEVER dirty. Things happen and I am not always able to clean it as I like. Duck season is especially hard as not only am I in and out covered with mud and dirt but so is the dog plus it is winter time so we have a double dose of dirt. Some of the job sites can be really messy as well.

    Pretty much though my truck is kept spotless and sparkling. Can't stand a dirty vehicle.

    I pretty much only use Meguiar's products as well. When possible I use their Gold Class line. Nothing better out there so readily available IMO.
    Wow, thats impressive if you get sick of cleaning yours u cancome clean mine. Just Kidding,. I wash mine at home by hand everyother weekend and use a California car duster on it allmost every day.
    Anybody have any suggestions on keeping Leather clean and soft?

    Default How do you find the time?

    NHsilverado, I love to wash my truck, since I got the new Burb I have been washing it about every three days. But, how do you find the time? I use the same products that you are using, have not found any better.

    Default How do you keep your truck clean?

    I am in the Phoenix area. I keep the truck clean and garage it. When polishing a relatively good finish, I use Meguiar's New Car Glaze #5 or #7. I t will become squeaky clean. The cloth will squeak. Then follwo soon after with Mequiar's wax. The wax has been harder for me to find. I is Mirror glaze #26. It lasts the logest under the sun. If someone knows of something that lasts longer, I am all ears.

    I wash my truck once every week or so (depending on weather) and keep one of these handy jewels in my console for a dusting the interior every few days.
