Heidi’s visit

Friday, June 25th, 2004

Here are some pictures of Heidi’s, my Uncle’s miniature schnauzer, visit this year. He and my aunt went to Florida for a week or so and left her with my mom. I think one week a year is enough of a dog fix for mom… 🙂

More on detailing my car

Friday, June 25th, 2004

Last weekend I topped the Poorboy’s EX-P with S100 paste wax. The S100 product line is very similar (if not the same) as that of P21S. The paste wax costs about half as much as the P21S version. Unlike P21S, which you can really only get online, S100 is found in just about every Harley-Davidson dealership, but I guess you can also get it online.

I didn’t take a picture of the results because I didn’t really think that pictures would show the difference, especially on different days under different lighting conditions. Now that I’ve had a few days to look it over, I really like the s100 on top of EX-P. Makes the car look really wet and the shine deeper, just like a quality carnuba is suppose to do I suppose. EX-P was very clean and somewhat wet looking by itself, but I think the S100 was a nice improvement. I likes it.

I’ve quick detailed with Meguiar’s Final Detail (from their Detailer line, but it has been discontinued) and the car sure looked perty. Today I bought some Eagle One Wax-As-You-Dry spray. Eagle One says that it can be used as your only wax, but I’ll be using it as a booster for the S100, to help keep that “just waxed” look after regular car washing. It’ll be free after rebate, so if I don’t like it, no big loss.

This weekend I think I’ll try tackling my engine bay, especially my cam cover. It’s pretty nasty looking! I uess I should consult an expert like Mark Hare detailing near Mechanicsville Md to get best results.
