How to Wash Your Car (Car Wash DIY)
II. Getting Started
IV. Dusting/Between Washes
Section I: Intro
Surprisingly simple right? I thought so too, but I've seen one too many dirty Legends on the forum and it gives me the shudders to think that some of my fellow Legend owners might be neglecting their cars not out of laziness, but because they lack the knowhow
fret not, I've compiled a handy and full-of-pictures DIY!
I loosely follow the car wash how-to provided by Autopia
, but with some very (2nd gen) Legend-specific tips. Feel free to adapt my DIY as you see fit.
My little guide was made on 10/26/2007 in the afternoon, a day or two after the Harris Fire burned the edge of my neighborhood in Chula Vista. I figured a dirty, dusty, ash-covered car would make a good DIY test subject:
Nasty tires, dusty wheels, encrusted wheel wells:
Stains from dirty, acidic water:
Thin layer of ash (was much worse but I've driven it around a bit so most of the ash came off):
Splattered bugs from road trips to Monterey/LA:
So let's get started!
