Ever since having our son, my mother-in-law has been there at a drop of the hat to help us, even though they moved 2 hours away to the country shortly after he was born. For christmas I decided to detail her car for her, she has had the car almost as long as my wife and I have been together (13 years) and even though my father-in-law wants her to get a new one, she loves it and wants to keep it. It hardly ever gets washed and until recently the main road to their house was partly dirt.

My main goal was not to get is 100% but 80-90% and bring back allot of the shine. I did some interior cleaning, but as she is borderline hoarder, I need her to clean it out a bit before I can really clean it.

Used:
CG Mr. Pink with some PB APC to clean
CG honeydew snow foam in foam gun
Bud and Tar remover
Diablo, Signature series wheel cleaner, and PB APC for the wheels
Snowfoam & autoscrub medium

Rupes 21 and 6.5 LC Orange pad with Menzerna PO203
PC and 4 in White pad with Menzerna PO203

Rupes 21 and 6.5 LC CCS Red Pad with CG Jetseal

CG VRP on tires

CG New look trim gel on plastics

invisible glass on glas

To start (I still suck at taking pictures)

As I said the goal was to minimize not eliminate

Nice turn around, Josh. I hope my 60k mile silverado comes out that clean when it's done.
