You Like Shine? I Like Shine.......


........no, not moon, the shine on black that is........

Had the Z for just about 3 years now, have only washed it and detail sprayed the crap out of it. Prepping for the big Ocean City Corvette show and ride up the boardwalk next weekend, thought I'd put some effort into it.

Clay barred the contaminants off, and it was loaded too, then machine buffed with mild Menzerna compound, then tomorrow I'll throw some Black Diamond sealer on it, some wax, good to go.

I just love cleaning the barrels on the wheels, that's why I do it once every three years. Will vacuum the cloth type material in the wheel wells, everything sticks to that surface.

I'm not complaining, I actually enjoy puttering around the car, keeps me busy.

Re: You Like Shine? I Like Shine.......


Years ago one of my buddies elder brother was totally immersed in bikes (like he lived for nothing else) - he bought a new one every three or four years, (Norton Commando, Honda 4, whatever) he was totally obsessed with his bikes to the exclusion of everything else - would never, ever take the bike out in the rain. If he was unfortunate to get caught out in rain he would spend hours in his garage cleaning and polishing in to the middle of the night if needed - nothing else mattered to him - his bikes would have been such a good used buy for someone. As must your cars Norm Clap Thumbs up

This is the way to go now Norm, that old clay bar thing is to much hard work and takes too long, done my whole Z06 in 20 minutes with no arm ache.

Thanks, good suggestion. I had seen something similar not long a go, but the material is kind of akin to the nano-cloths, which I don't like, I'm used to kneading the clay bar when it gets a little dirty, to bring back a fresh surface.

I don't mind the old school way, I am not in any hurry, it's almost like therapy to me, methodical, and complete. Plus I need all the exercise I can get. Very Happy

Norm looks fantastic, but you got to take her out at night and let the natural illumination of the moon light her up, we all like moonshine!

Oh! to have the time and your garage with all that space and Kit and a nice Corvette - well done Norm keep em coming.
