    I spent half of Friday and all day Saturday detailing the exterior of my Vette. It is not a Ferrari, but it still takes time to detail. :) The results are outstanding.

    I am lazy. I am calling a detailer for a Fri. appointment.

    I have piles of leaves in my floorboards at this point from parking it under a tree with the top down. There is spilled coffee splashed on the drivers door. There is limerock mud in the wheel wells. Don't even get me started on the 1/8" coat of brake dust obscuring the actual color of the wheels. Oh, and don't wipe your hand across the dash as you will need to go wash your hands afterwards to get the dust/pollen combo off of them.

    I assume he can get all the cigar tar off of the inside of the windows too.

    I hope so at least. That bothers me more than the rest.

    Nice, it’s always great to work on the car knowing everything else has been taken care of. Which car do you have?

    I really like these two products for keeping things looking nice. The Trinova UV protectant does a great job of cleaning and shining everything, especially black plastics. Plus it lasts a long time and it doesn’t attract dust.

    The Griots engine dressing does the same for metal.

    Again, not a Ferrari, but i did spend about 15 hours doing a full exterior detail using Adam's products. I didn't take any photos showing the results. But the bottom photo shows a black ornamental fence that is about thirty yards from the car.

    The 15 hours included: hand wash including removing old sealant, blow dry, wipe down car with detail spray, clay bar, mask off parts of car, polish with DA polisher, remove polish by hand, apply and remove one coat of sealant, followed by one more coat of sealant.

    I enjoy all cars regardless of the make, model, year, etc. I like all brands and glad we all have options that fit our taste and budget.

    That might be the best looking 430 I’ve ever seen. Love it.
