I wash once a week and wax once every 2 months or so. The rims are cleaned maybe 3-4x a week.. I can't stand it when they don't shine as much!

I know how you feel on the wheels. I thought after powdercoating mine it would be easier, but turns out I want my gloss black to be as shiny as it can be.

I wash and wax my wifes GC once a week due to the fact that she's not allowed to park in the garage since I keep my classics in there. Plus I work in a power plant so I have access to demineralized water and plenty of plant air to dry the car. lol

5-6 days a week and have been doing for two plus years. I buy $1000. unlimited wash package every year. And every day I have to yell at Jose and D/C's 1/2 cousin's
to WIPE off the excess armor all or it sprays all over like a porn video. I have to buy
their $40. fast wax buff once a month to get rid of the wash machine scratches. Add two bucks (2) a day to that year total
for a tip.
The worst incident is the brushes has tore up some vinyl stickers edges.

I have a professional detailer come once a month. Does both vehicle for $85 and every third month waxes for $40 more per vehicle. I have no swirls on either vehicle. Which is good because the Merc is black.

However often it rains and the jeep is outside?!! That it what my dad would say. And he waxes it when he takes it through the car wash and gets the works! Says it has wax built into it!! Makes my hair stand up!

jeep stays parked in the Garage Monday - Friday every week. It normally gets washed in that period so when I pull it out on the weekends, it's clean and ready to go.

I do a 3 step detail to my cars by hand 4x a year.
