Sometimes you guys tick me off. I come off my dirt road all dusty and dingy and see a vehicle like yours and start thinking about moving.

I hope you realize you could be causing accidents with a shine like that. Looks great!

I usually spend 3-5 hours a week cleaning, so clay bar, compounding and Collinte wax only takes me about two hours. My paint never gets a chance to be in bad condition, so easy to maintain. I always do the three c thing in the spring, after the winter grime is done. I even clay the windshield!

Thanks for noticing the wheel wells, Mark. I use Yamaha pre wash cleaner, then spray them with Meguiars Hot Shine tire spray.

Yeah well I'm still recovering from the initial shock...

Let's sit and talk about something called OCD

Hey the driveway is wet from just behind the front wheels. Admit it , you washed the one or two bugs you had on the front before you took those pics

I've got a couple small dings / stone chips on mine now. I'm so depressed looking at yours...

Now I have to learn how to use a &?%$ clay bar

Let's sit and talk about something called OCD - Yup, that's me when it comes to vehicles. My father started me cleaning cars when I was 8; that's 52 years ago.

Hey the driveway is wet from just behind the front wheels. Admit it , you washed the one or two bugs you had on the front before you took those pics - Sadly, I wash my driveway down most every night.

I've got a couple small dings / stone chips on mine now. I'm so depressed looking at yours... Get some touch up paint from Roberts. Not 100% match, but better than a chip.

Now I have to learn how to use a &?%$ clay bar. Easy peasy. The surface of your paint goes from sandpaper texture to a smooth fine silk with minimal effort.

When I traded my Grand Cherokee on the KL, two dealers offered me 40% over clean book value because of the vehicle appearance.
