I guess so, haha. Whenever my front bumper gets re-painted its time for a full on detail session. Wash, wax, vaccume, armor all all the interior plastics, leather treatment, tire shine....the works

Just curious, why do you suggest a cotton wash mitt? Is it just a personal preference?

For the PC 7424. I wish I would have picked up one of these earlier than I originally did. It's one of the best things you can buy if you are serious about detailing.

I'll have to check and see if they have any good ones there. Most of the one I have seen are thin crap. Plush 100% lambswool mitt seem to work good for me.
