Holy heck. You guys have my head spinning after reading this thread. BFWD, OC, UPGP, BFCS, AJT, FinishKare 1000P, Trigger, QD, MF, WerkStat, BlackFire Crystal...
I'm no waxing/detailing/cleaning freak so I don't understand any of this madness. I know that I waxed my last car probably once with some mirror product (I think) over the 9 years that I had it. My wife's RX330 needs to be waxed also - and it's never been waxed by us over 50k miles. I hopefully get my WRX today and I'll be looking to do something to it in a few weeks.
What would you recommend a normal person with a LOT of other chores on the weekend do to keep things looking good? We have two little sons (2 & 4) that play in the garage, too, so the cars are inevitably going to have fingerprints on them constantly - I'm harboring no delusions of keeping show-quality cars sleeping in the garage at all times. These are daily drivers that get normal abuse from people with kids. And I don't have all weekend to do a quarter panel.
Wash (we have soft water), dry, then ... ... clay bar? wax? Trigger? Send it to you guys so that you can do something elaborate? I figured I'd ask while both of you two were in the same thread.
