Also the day before i did major cleaning in my car, wasnt done since last year maybe year before, 2 days ago I completely washed and waxed (turtle wax) my car, and did a cleaning up the interior, and honestly it took me about 5 hours to do it all

Vaccume whole interior removed both seats

Vaccume mats and the platform (back)

wiped dash console everything

replaced the air freshener

washed car by hand, including rims

HAND DRIED the whole car :)

and did the wax job ,

let me know what you guys think, maybe next time i can make a thread on how i specifically do it and in what order and where to start , and also leave comments and tell me what do you guys do when washing your car? roll it through the wash bay or hand wash etc? :)

There are tons of awesome forums specifically centered around paint care. The 2 bucket method is a fairly common way properly wash your car to not instill swirls. The typical full on detail runs about like this:

1) Shampoo car to remove all wax and product protecting the clear.
2) Clay bar
3) Decontaminate (Iron-X)
4) Wash again
5) Polish
6) Wax/Sealant

Hey, just curious about your Braille battery. Was that just a straight plug-n-play from the standard battery, or did it require special mods? Also, are the CC amps lower, or are there any other notable shortcomings compared to a standard size battery? Thanks in advance.

The tsunami scoop really looks good on brighter colored cars. It really sticks out on 8m6 and 3p0. I think it would look great. Sometimes I wish I picked up the tsunami over c-one.

Well if you buy an authentic tsunami it'll fit perfectly. But my replica c-one fits almost perfectly. So you should be good with a replica. Its also called a sport m hoodscoop in UK?
