BHR has not learned that driving a milly can also be fun........he still thinks it can't tow, remember?


Tow? He thinks it is made of sugar and melts in the rain :)

you want to use a high end wax, like meguiers. I have done it before, ok results, I usually claybar mine once a year and a mild wax, less brake dust sticks, and very easy to clean

Glass:
1. dampen a piece of cloth with water+dishwasher soap+vinegar
2. wipe the glass
3. dry it with newspaper (should be low quality and dyed, just use plain newspaper)

After that they are so clean that someone should tell how to get rid of small small scratches?

What about tires bhr?

Another tip:
use matte finish scotch tape to clean your digi-cam lcd, comp. screen, radio lcd in the car etc.. No residue and takes out all the shit..

meguiers all the way

I personally use the professional grade cleaner wax, not found in many stores, but the standard gold class is excellent, along with the step 2 polish etc

You may be right. Thats why i said just stupid low-Q newspaper not white paper that may have fibers hard enough to scratch. I did it several times for the inside and havent seen any scratch after wiping.

you never wax the tires, don't be lazy and just smear it around.

rain-x is a piece of shit.

I have some older clay that I use on my wheels and windows, then wax. It makes the tint look barely darker, but it adds that liquid look I'm fond of
