Project Detail: 2005 Toyota Matrix

Seriously neglected the family Matrix. It hasn't been washed since early last summer. So it had heavy road grime all over, and the winter wheels haven't been cleaned for 2 winters now. I just did a wash and wax, didn't do any claying as it's not worth it for me. I used a pressure washer to get at wheel wells and blast off as much grime as possible before hitting it with my sheepskin washmitt. Heres the process/pictures:

- 2 Bucket Method w/ Grit Guards
- EuroW Sheepskin Washmitt
- Meguiars Gold Class
- Zep Citrus

- Zep Citrus Degreaser 3:1
- Raceglaze XL Wheel Brush
- Laitner Wheel Brush
- Swissvax Wheel Brush
- Meguiars Tire Brush
- Old Sponge cut in half
- Michaels Paint Brush
- Gloss-It Signature Tire Gloss
- Blackfire All Metal Sealant

Last Step Protection:
- Bilt Hamber Auto Balm
- Distilled Water
- Blackfire Applicator Pad
- Autowerkes Exclusive 530 Towel

Dried with new RG Plush Drying Towel, my review here

After wash/dry

Thank god for gritguards!
