I guess I've always been pretty "Detail Oriented" in a lot of ways when it comes to my car. Well, you know how "First Impressions" are SO important????? I guess that's why I keep my car SO clean. Now don't get me wrong ..... I drive it 8 months of the year (no winter), but I don't take out the Civic just because it's raining and I've just washed the Cobra. My Cobra is my Summer Daily Driver. I even take it camping and fill it up till stuff is popping out my sunroof. It's never been on a trailer. I won't take it down stone roads though or drive closely behind trucks because those are just plain dumb ideas! For those that live on a stone road my heart goes out to you. :)
I guess I was just as adamant towards my 69 Chevelle, my 75 Nova, my two Gti's and my 93 5.0 convertible. Although I could care less about my Civic! I have spent lots of time and money experimenting with different waxes and polishes, as well as soaps and conditioners. It wasn't until a couple of years ago that I decided to start showing my car. I have done well in shows because I have unique items on my car which "look good" and because my car is spotless at shows (outdoor shows are tough).
I feel confident in answering most Detailing questions and if I do not know the answers, I won't just "Guess", to throw out a response. I'll find the answer as best I can.
