There is nothing worse in my opinion than a black car that looks awful because its not well maintained by the owner. Superior Shine is the best.
Yup. LA area. Thanks for the recommendation. I'll look into it.

It's amazing how everyone's obsidian from CA is spotless in all these pictures! Very envious!

I probably couldn't keep the car clean for more than a day or two here in twin cities during this time before it's covered in dirt and salt!

I'm headed to LA in Feb for training class. I'm hoping to get a little break from the harshness of winter for a week! Just so you CA people know what you are missing out, forecast for Monday, 1/6 is high of -17 degrees and low of -22 degrees. But by Friday it's supposed to hit 30 degrees, which could be considered heat wave by MN standards and temperatures we've been seeing recently.

Thanks Debbie! It's actually Brand Library Park up in Glendale but the palm trees lining the street closely resemble Beverly and Sunset.

Haha it's a lot of work keeping it clean but I'm sure not as hard as it would be if we had to worry about snow/salt. I'm glad you'll get to escape the cold for a little bit next month!

Can't get over how much I love the front of my car. It's a sexy beast!!! Yes I have a handicap placard. Torn up my knee pretty bad and had surgery in September. When I clean my car have to sit down on a chair

I bought some ONR too and will be trying for the first time soon. I really hope it works as advertised but it's still going to be cold in my garage.

Yes, ONR works as advertised. I place a electric space heater in my garage when I wash and it helps a lot. Also, google :Gary Dean wash method." You use lots of microfiber towls in the wash process, put its worth it.

Yeah, I read through that process and got some supplies to utilize that method. Thing that sucks for me is that I still have to go through the touch-less car wash to get the salt and dirt off first so it's really not saving me any time or money.

I have little space heater so I'll try that to keep little warmer also.

I dont have a space heater in my garage so it stays pretty cold but I find that using ONR as spot treatment (4:1) on the really salty spots like the middle of the car and below helps alot. I simply spray it all over the area and let it sit for a minute and then wipe away with my wash media. Also, I use hot water which I think helps alot. Its the little things haha. You got through more ONR using it at as spot treatment but I think it helps clean the car better.

^Go to the coin-op power wash instead of paying to go through the touchless wash. I can power wash my entire car at the coin op place for $1.50 and then drive home and do a rinseless wash with Optimum No Rinse in my garage, then top it with CarPro Reload for added protection

Looks great. Tough to beat a spotless Obsidian with armor-alled tires.
