    Cool Scion Xb

    Yes, I tend to let some of my vehicles go until I have a great test bed ... my daily driver Scion Xb is the teat bed ..

    As you can see it got pretty bad ... lots of bugs, grime, some type of roof mold, bird bombs, burnt on brake dust on the hub caps and even some iron deposits on the rear hatch and bumper ...

















    Products used :

    Chenille Wash Mitt
    Mesh Bug Microfiber
    Super Slick and Wax
    Bug Squash
    Spray and Rinse
    Ph Neutral Iron remover (coming soon)
    Spray and Gloss - drying agent
    Waffle Weave Towel

    First Step was the rinse and spraying of Bug Squash on the front



    Then some of the pH Neutral Iron Remover on the rear .. I did find more iron spots hiding after lifting the rear hatch



    Started washing at this point and didn`t take a lot of pictures ... 2 buckets , grit guard, 2 mitts, and mesh bug microfiber (yes a silver one)

    As I was washing the roof, I noticed it was not coming completely clean with just the chenille mitt, so i added the Mesh Bug Microfiber to the washing and the mold started coming right off ..



    I also sprayed the roof with the Iron Remover (no picture) and there was also iron in the mold ...

    Here is the Iron remover at work ...





    The rest are afters .... hope you enjoy ,, last few are the Merlin shots

















    thanks for looking

    You didn`t need to use the spray and rinse on the hub caps... If you took them off and let the black wheel show, you would have a "modern" vehicle.
