It takes me about 3 hrs to wash & detail it as well. Luckily I have a garage to keep it in so it stays pretty clean. I usually only have to dust it with my california duster. Thing works like a charm! Quick once over with it & I'm good to go. Just have to get the bugs off with a bug sponge & pressure wash the dust off the wheels around twice a week.

If you wash it every week, a spray wax is great. It keeps it protected for a few weeks then spray wax again when needed.
Paste wax is more of a 2-3 times a year thing for me.

It's a DD so wash once a week unless it rains then I wash it before it goes in the garage which has led to some late night washes and snide comments from the neighbors. Quick detail almost everyday...can't stand the way the back looks after 2 miles. Paint correction once so far, clay and wax every 2-3 months or so.

I have OCD. LOL


I'm sorry I just dont like a dirty vehicle.

For instance the thing that bugs me the most are the rims being dusty. I stick my hand in the wheel and clean the insides every day and of course I clean the face of the rims.

The dust really bothers me. LOL


And as far as waxing goes, I do it once a month.

And every 6 months I clay bar, polish and wax.
Pretty sure I basically do the same thing.

I can't stand to drive a dirty car, whether it is my jeep or another

A paint correction is a process that removes (some) scratches, bird poop markings, swirl marks and other contaminants of paint. You generally use a random orbital sander/polisher and polishes to bring the paint back from dull to life. The dullness comes from like refracting in the defects in the clearcoat, with a paint correction these defects are corrected and the paint will look "wet". Its a fun process and everyone should do it at least once in their life . haha. generally very time consuming if done correctly and very fine attention to detail. Im sure someone else will chime in too but thats the jist of it, and ive been up for like almost 2 days so im sure something will sound wrong haha.
