07.27.23 (MP3): Excellent Car Cleaning Tips (You May Not Know), w/ Tricks for Better Washing, Quicker Drying, Avoiding Water Spots, Building Shine, Removing Tar & Saving Grease, + 42 Days of Tracks Fighting to Be on the Garage Hour
The Garage Hour goons got our fancy canyon carving nasties a little dirty on a fuuuuuun run over Independence Pass (lousy stupid mountain cloudbursts), so it’s time for car cleaning. How about some technique you might not know from the detailing experts (referring to us - hilarious)?
Here’s the what: keeping metal cool and wet, cold water versus glass, pre-washing, two buckets (and two sponges?), detailing with detailer, thumbnail tricks, clar bars, cotton and microfiber towels, car-care chemicals, wheel brushes, tool prep, hang-drying, air and water drying, specialized cleaners for special surfaces, and using good products like Mother’s, Griot’s and E.C.P. ( as well as their detail guides).
