453 Car Wash

Well this is consider as a Paint so for the 453 owners what do you use to clean your 453?

I use currently use Auto-Chem -Professional- ECO WASH - Waterless Wash, Wax and Shine Complete and the Stoner Invisible Glass Cleaner With Rain Repellent with costco microfiber cloths. It does a good job for 2 weeks before I must clean it.

Note my 453 is parked outside so list where you park your and how often.

I have the Matte Grey paint. I use Meguiar's Gold Class Soap and a Lamb Skin Wash mitt. 2 Bucket method.

I'm parked indoors 90% of the time. I did get some tree goop on my car recently, didn't get it off all that well, I need to do another wash this weekend and maybe follow with a clay bar and wax for the black trideon sections.

The two bucket method is the way to go. That, and a nice waffle weave towel to pat the car dry!


I live in an apartment complex with outdoor parking, but they have a great car wash bay. I try to get to it every weekend and typically use Meguiar's Gold Class Soap and wax. It's been a pain this year though with all the pollen Atlanta has had so I've skipped more than I care to admit...
