the tires look great, clean and shiny but surely not greesy/oily. how long does the shine last? never used this product. did you get it locally or online?
Thank you. Yes, that is exactly why I like it. I never really pay attention how long it lasts. If it doesn't rain it'll stay fairly shiny the entire time but after the first big rain, the car is usually dirty to warrant a wash so having shiny tires doesn't help lol. This is based on my black Accord.
I believe that you can buy it at Pep Boys. I get it through a friend of mine who buys his detailing equipment by the gallon as he does it professionally.
wow looks great. Tires look really nice, i usually go with Black magic tire foam makes all my trucks look awesome and lasts forever even after a few rainstorms but i recently switched to 303 aerospace protectant. Hear its the best thing for tires (to keep the rubber like new as opposed to "looking" new.) as it doesnt use silicone which can make them rot and protects against UV. Must admit its a pain to rub down though compared to just spraying the wet foam and doesnt last as long. Just thought id share. :P
My buddy has 303 in his arsenal of detailing products and he loves it. I haven't used it but wouldn't be adverse to it.
Here is the hog filling up. Drank premium at 19.4MPG this tank.
Also washer her again today and put on the winter tires. The accessory wheels make the wheel wobble on the freeway which my wife failed to notice lol. Couldn't let that stand. Next year they're getting new tires anyway.
You can also somewhat see the running boards I installed.
I've been meaning to update this for a while...on Dec 30th a crazy lunatic side swiped my wife's car while changing lanes. We pulled over (I was in my Accord) and while I was waiting for him to pull out his insurance information, I got a picture of his plate. Being in the road he suggested we pull into a parking lot which was fine by me. After pulling into a parking lot, he decides to book it. Gen was on the phone with the cops almost immediately after the accident so she was able to have them find the guy relatively quickly.
Car is in the shop and will be getting a new quarter panel, wheel is being reconditioned, alignment will be performed, and the bumper is repairable. Damage estimate is around $2100 right now and should be done between Wednesday and Friday next week.
