    Sanded right through the clear coat trying to fix a rock chip. Forgot that I had worked the same area years ago for a previous repair and after a few swipes with 2000 grit paper, BAM! dark spot appears. And it couldn`t be in an out of the way spot. NO! Had to be toward the top of the right front fender and is one of the fist things I see walking in to the garage.

    Probably will have to have the area spot repaired and the whole fender cleared now.

    I cleaned up the daily driver after the recent trip to Virginia.

    Paint washed with Blackfire WD Conditioning Shampoo with PMBG chenille mitt, dried with PakShak WW Towel. Jambs wiped down with Mothers Showtime

    The paint has Menzerna Power Lock topped with Blackfire Midnight Sun. The water still sheets well so a breeze to dry.

    Glass:
    Exterior: Sprayway with new Carpro glass towel
    Interior: Meg`s D120 Glass Cleaner with a Poorboys glass towel

    There really is no secret to these glass towels. They are either a no nap towel or some variation of a chamois (Absorber). They both worked fine. The Carpro is a little grabby on dry glass so wrapped it around an application so it would not roll as you wiped.

    Wheels and wells cleaned using Blackfire soap used on paint (did them last) since I wanted paint dry before sun came over trees. Chrome Wheels blinged with Mothers Spray Wax

    Tires cleaned with Mothers Back to Black Tire Renew and dressed with Mothers Reflections Tire Care.

    Interior vacuum with mats cleaned with Mothers Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner

    I spent two days on the Fusion.

    Prep All
    CG Clear
    M205 Polish using DI White Pad.
    IPA Wipe down
    Prima Epic (2 coats) 24 hours apart. Used Prima Hydro to spit shine each coat.
    LSP - Fuzion (24 hours later)

    Spiffy! Slick! Sunshine bright!

    Dressed tires with Mother`s Back to Black Tire Shine. Two coats, each buffed after 10 minute dwell times. Respectable.

    Something I learned from the Pro Blog.

    Soak pads & applicators in CG Clear wash solution for 30 minutes, then rinse and squeeze. Nice and clean.

    I`ll take a pic when the sun is out and no risk of rain.

    Washed my 2012 Kia Sorento with ONR. Put a coat of Pinnacle Souveran Liquid. Looks very good- first time doing a whole vehicle with it.

    Applied a thin coat of MaxWax over fading BFMS.
    Cleaned windows in and out with Sprayway.
    Sealed exterior glass (except windshield) with BFWD.
    Dressed tires with Mother`s Back to Black Tire Shine.

    Thank you! Amazing what a little APC, an old microfiber, and a detail brush can do!

    Took a ride to PA yesterday so this morning I removed bug guts from the front end, windshield and mirrors. Yuck!

    Trick is to get them before they bake into the paint!
