I inherited my dads impala. Umm..it will be my daily driver.

174k miles.
163123


Cleaned it and washed it. Took me 4hrs to wash, first with dish soap then i claybar it, then dish soap again and finally i used car soap, then i used a spray on wax. Im amazed the paint looks as nice as it does. The last time the car was washed was when i last washed it in 2013...馃槕..馃槄. Im not 100% happy with how it came out but atleast it appears silver instead of charcoal or dark grey. Needs a proper detailing but will do for now.

Looks good. Clay works so well on almost any hard to remove gunk. But it is exhausting to use. I am trying to stay on top of washing/waxing regularly now so I won't have to clay again any time soon.

Ita under the plastic cover.

Oh i recommend getting a soft brush. (Tooth brush works). Throttle body spray for throttle body and maf spray for the maf.

Heres a tutorial video i found.

I forgot to add to buy lots of microfiber towels. Makes cleaning much easier.
