Washed and waxed the Avalanche for the first time

I used Zaino, like I always did with my Corvette. It's a long process, I also used claybar. But, it sure turned out nice.

If you look closely, you may see the present I gave to my wife for her birthday on Saturday.

Wow. Looks just like the truck that I used to have! Except after I cleaned mine, the wheelwells were much cleaner and the wheelwell liners got armor all on them. I have some hi-res pics somewhere.....

Very funny. I considered it, but decided against the wheel wells. It IS a truck, afterall.

How long did it take you to claybar it?

What'd you get the wife, the Scion? I like those, a friend of mine has a TC and it's pretty cool.
