    I bought some good Wax. I need to learn how to properly buff and bring the best finish out of a paint job that I can. Anyone know of a good guide to wax/buff/paint cleaning that they would like to share? There's many out there but I'd like to know what YOU guys prefer.



    I want to do it right!

    I hear that a clay bar is the best way to clean the paint before waxing/buffing. I might go buy one tomorrow morning.

    EDIT: I went to Meguiars website, They told me to do this, based on 30+ question's I answered. http://a.imageshack.us/img39/583/srxplus.png
    That's just a list of shit to buy though, not a list of what order to do things in, or how to do it. They have a forum and I'm gonna read up on waxing/buffing/polishing, etc.. It's here: Meguiar's Online

    Worked.. It was really hot. I did parking all weekend and made about $300. Not bad considering I get to talk to pretty girls that are there to party and have fun.

    Line got pretty long. This was the busiest weekend since the beginning of the summer.

    Went to a huge junk yard in San Antonio with 2 other Rev member's (bbarcher and m4ff3w). Nice guys, had fun!

    Got a bunch of switches and knobs. Hand full of fuses and a gas cap for my car. I HATED the one that I had, as did my wife.



    Love the polished look of this one and it's in like new condition. Click's when it locks and just feels so much better than that old one. You had to fight that old one to get it off.

    I wish I had a container of bing cherries right now, that would be so good after walking my mountain bike all the way home from the trail. I rode off a 4' drop and landed so hard that my rear tire went "POW!", FML!

    Got a bunch of little hard to find items at the junk yard. Seat controls. Window switches. Gas cap that doesn't suck. Those window switches on the left are my old ones. I got some that look almost brand new from the JY and already swapped them out with the ones in the picture. If anyone needs them, you can have them for the cost of shipping. They work perfectly fine. I cleaned them on the inside when I first got the car.

    Really kick ass JY. There was row after row of MB's. First JY we went to didn't have but one w201! It sucked.

    Took those 4 switches that I had and made 2 really nice one's out of them. I'm sure you all know how the black rubs off of the switches and makes them look bad. Well I made a set for my car that has no black rubbed off and they look almost brand new.
