Cadillac ATS-V quick wash & tire treatment


Recommended Posts

Finally got out this morning to get my ATS-V cleaned up.  After the wash & dry and wheels and tires now it is really to start to get clean.

Finished -- I think it is up to where an actual detailer would expect to start lol.

But done for this morning.  It looks a lot better than when I started, but the wheels still need more attention, and now would be a good time to wax.

Looks good. Bet "she" drives better too.  Must suck to have to have a front license plate though.  I use Stoner's MoreShine for my tires; like it a lot.

With the tow bolt solution I am okay with it.  But yes, it would look better without.

When people jokingly (I think jokingly) mention that they'll bring their vehicle over (to get a wash/detail/etc) next, I often think of that "line" from "Romancing the Stone" with Michael Douglas ( Jack Colton ), when he says, "I'm not cheap, but I can be had".  That usually gets a chuckle, and needless to say, the request withdrawn. :D
