Spring Cleaning / Detail pics, post em if you get em!
I just spent the better part of two days (between rain showers) cleaning up the truck following our long winter. Still looks pretty good if I do say so myself at 14 years old! I started with a wash (pressure washer / foam cannon) followed by de-tarring, detail clay and Meguiar's Gold Caranuba. Also washed all the junk out of the undercarriage with the pressure washer. Discovered a rear shock that was leaking (Bilstein 5100) so I'll need to replace that. Hopefully they will replace it under warranty. If not, I may try Fox shocks this time for the rear.
Cleaned the engine bay top to bottom with a Simple Green Solution followed by an engine detail spray and wipe down (didn't use the the pressure washer in the engine bay) . Then I tackled the interior with a shop vac and Meguiar's 40 Rubber and Vinyl Conditioner. Washed the windows with Invisible Glass, cleaned the chrome and exterior trim and I was done.
I always seem to find little things that need attention when I do my spring cleanup. This year it was cleaning battery terminals, fixing a bad wiring connector and doing a better job installing the dash camera I got for Christmas. Oh, and the dog got a bath too :-)
Regular washing, waxing and garage storage really makes a huge difference, especially in our northern winters. Detailing isn't my favorite thing to do but I like the results. Anyone else doing a spring clean up? Post em if you got em!
