My car's already pretty dirty on the outside. I really wish it'd stop raining for more than a day. I use the same stuff I got with my Lightning. Not sure what it's called, but it's good.

Here's my regime if re-waxing is to use several soft spoonges, a 10 gal. bucket of warm water with dish soap. The dishsoap cleans and removes old wax. If you don't want wax removed I recommend a polymer type auto soap. I then clay bar the car- if you clay bar, take note. If you ever drop clay, toss it. It will have picked up tiny rocks.

Once it's clayed, I grab my orbital and put some polishing compound on it, polish, wipe off excess and wax in the shade.

I'm really surprised at how easy the interior gets dirty. 3xx miles and it's already a mess.

There are some products in the garage that should help.

Is anyone else getting mosquitos in their car? I have all the windows up and everything. But every morning when I get in the car, there's at least one flying. I smashed one and he left a blood mark on the driver'd door card. :(

I'm with VTEC Mini on the Adams stuff. The guy my brother bought his car from mentioned it. Always game to try a new product I ordered their little sample pack. I now use their products almost exclusively. Their detail spray is the best I compared it next to a couple other products and it looked and felt better and its better to use. Nothing of theirs I've tried disappointed me.

Their customer service is second to none as well..had a problem with one of the sprayers being left out of an order. They overnighted me a new one along with throwing in some free microfibers.

So, I waxed mine the week I bought it. Paint was really smooth so no clay bar this time. Besides I need a new clay bar anyway. Since then weekly washes assuming no rain and then spend about 20mins afterwards cleaning windows, headlights, and detail spray on whole car. As for interior I just vacuum and use the adams interior stuff. It doesn't make everything shiny or gooey like a lot of things I've tried. I like meguiars interior stuff too...its one of their products in the brown bottle the professional series.
That's another great product. In fact, that's what came w/ my Ford Lightning.
