I broke down this past sunday and buffed the ENTIRE vehicle even the roof with No7 polishing compound then went over it with 2 coats of wax with 4 coats in areas where more protection is needed.

Then tried to go to bed last night Oh man I ache in places I didnt even know couls ache LOL!

Yeah, a Suburban is like waxing and polishing a small bus! It will pay off as it looks good over the next few months with a good shine.

Hey Doc, Has it rained where you are yet?
That's how my luck works. It's sunny, and 80deg, and I drive into the automatic car wash, and as I drive out, it starts raining. :lol: :lol:

Its getting to be time for that kind of thing, I usually go over mine once with the Griots paint clay, it grabs all the little pieces of "misc junk" off the paint so that the wax goes on like glass. Never heard of it before a buddy of mine started getting me into that Griots catalog.

Yes Patrick that is the right link, Some of the stuff is a little spendy but the starter kit is great and they have some pretty unique shop accesories that are very cool. The actual detailing products are pretty good quality in my opinion, I have been using this stuff now for about 5 years and been really happy with it.

Huh, I've never heard of that before. It works well? I might have to look into that.
