When she dropped it off it still had dried oil stains on the paint and was still pretty grimy. I started off with a gallon of water mixed with one ounce of Wash & Wax and an ultra-slick presoak concoction of one ounce of Wash & Wax mixed with water in a 32 ounce spray bottle. That cut through 90% of the stains itself.
For the tougher spots I just used a quick mist of Multi-Clean and,, BAM! the crud just melted off. I didn't even have to let the product sit. It worked IMMEDIATELY! I cleaned everything on this car, the engine bay (with Tire Shine), the door jambs, the trunk seams where the water drains, behind the license plate (there was a huge build up of oil there) you name I cleaned it.
So after she was all de-crudded I got out my personal favorite...Quick & Slick!! Man, I tell you what, you have to make me a 55 gallon drum of this stuff because I use it on everything, windows, paint, even inside the house on my bathroom countertop! Pretty soon I'm gonna start using it on my dinner plates if I don't get a hold of myself. So anyway, I put this nectar of the gods on the Subie and she was shining. No no no, I have that wrong, SHE WAS GLOWING! The satin white pearl was miles deep!
After finishing with the Quick & Slick I swept and cleaned the interior and dressed it with Tire Shine (or All Shine in my book since it can go anywhere). Easy as 1, 2, 3 and not even a need to wipe off residue since it has NO greasiness! I finished dressing the tires and trim and let my friend know that her baby was done. She loved it! Which is all that mattered to me. She was happy with her shiny Subie and I was thrilled with the results. And all of this only took 3 1/2 hours including breaks! Can you do that with any other products. No way! It would have taken 8 plus hours just to wash and seal the paint with other stuff not to mention I did this all in the comfort of my garage.
I'm ready for my next challenge, but somehow I know it won't be a match for CroftGate USA!
