Well i'm not sure how many of you have tackled the old "wash and wax" but this old coach needed a bit of cleaning. You know the old black streaks of doom, yup this old coach has them, no surprise really....lol.

So out came the hose, pale, car wash soap and Spray Nine.....yup you read correctly as that stuff works good on the black streaks BUT it also takes wax off when you use it full strength. So spray bottle and scrub cloth in hand i scrubbed the whole coach, not once but 3 times. Once pure, then diluted, then with soap/water.

After the scrubbing it was time for a de-oxidizing, luckly i have a polisher as i have wet sanded and buffed hundreds of cars, never the less their is a heck of alot of real-estate to cover.

From there it was on to a good old wax and hand polish.....came out ok for 40+ year old paint. Sadly the finish is getting pretty thin and the old coach wont be able to take many more of the sessions. 20200705_125349.jpg
