Hello from GA - New Jeep

Hello everyone! Just purchased a 2012 Jeep Sahara Unlimited last night! Excited to have the new ride...My last Jeep was a 2000 TJ - Just traded in my Mustang GT...Excited to learn from the forum!

I often post at Autogeek detailing forums - Here is my detail this AM:

Here in Atlanta it was 64 degrees out this AM...

Here was my process:
Foam Cannon with DP's Foam
Wash with CG Citrus Clear
P21 for the wheels
Megs All Purpose for the underneath and tires

Did some polishing with CG Vertua Bond 408
Coat of CG Blacklight
Coat of CG Lava

UTTG - The plastic parts
Opti-Bond - the tires

Windows were cleaned with CG Glassworks with Pom

Here I start off using my new pressure washer and foam cannon that I got for Christmas!




Here is the Jeep after one coat of CG Blacklight - interesting product. I really like what it looked like after one coat of it...I might need to pick up some V7





Here are outside pics after a coat of Lava - now, I need to get some practice with this product...

Pressure washer? Foam cannon? I use a hose and a bucket. Welcome to WF.

I still say a pressure washer is the single best add-on for a JK or any vehicle for that matter.......I may have to check out the foam cannon!!!! Frankly a pressure washer is a must have IMHO if you own a boat as well. Salt water and road salt all raise hell. The faster you get it off the better

SA-weeeet looking JKU. I just love black. The wifes V70 is jet black, great colour-------when its clean! Really nice looking ride.

Sweet ride the black is a nice choice.

Now go get that Jeep dirty.

Check out my garage, I have a Sahara as well. Pick and choose the mods you want. Make it your own based on what you want to do with it.

You're supposed to wash them?
Why didn't somebody tell me this sooner?

Nice choice of Jeep and color, but I'm prejudiced.

Me too.

But if mine's ever that clean, I'll sprinkle some Chipotle Cholula sauce on a small pebble, and eat it.

Nice to have another way of looking at things on the forum. You are the detail guy, ha! Welcome.

Edit: Your garage matches the way your wrangler looks, nice and clean!
