I haven't used a real chamois for many years, LOL. Like ivo says, the waffle microfiber towels (mine are the Meguiars Water Magnets) are awesome. After I wash, I remove the hose nozzle and flood the vehicle to remove most of the water beads. I can usually dry the vehicle with one towel and no wringing. I use a second dry towel to finish off. No lint, no streaking, very friendly to the painted surfaces.

I find this method highly effective for cleaning off the under carriage. And the lower front bumper. But wow your jeep looks great. I've never used a clay bar but when I had the corvette is used McQuires (sp) three step crystal polish after a good run down with Scratch X twice a year and that baby shone. Maybe the jeep is worth the effort if the weather is cool enough.

Nice 'Vette Ribbertw! 77? The TH is definitely worth the effort, Cherry Red looks awesome, not to mention the fact that you are maintaining value. I have cleaned a lot of cars, trucks and suv's for various individuals, and it amazes me at the lack of attention some people pay to the vehicles they drive every day.

"That just isn't right!"

A Jeep shouldn't look like that.

REALLY nice!

'76. But there's no real difference other than the number
I wash my jeep often and wipe down the interior..... Less often. Lol but I bought her to get dirty. Lots of mud and more than a few scratches.

It's a backyard special. I have to update the thread a bit as I had added backup lights from Hanning LED that work fantastically


Built my own spare tire mount
