Like quiet a few of us I’ve been around the wagon train using different types of waxes/polishes over the years. I talked to a high end car painter a few years ago and something he told me has stuck with me. A wax will last only a month or so in hot weather. My first thought was I’m not gonna wax the Beast every month. Your auto experts say once a year. It’s confusing for me. I usually do it myself once a year for the entire RV and then the rear maybe 3 or so times. It gets a lot of road dirt back there. Now the front I do about every 3-4 days when traveling and not parked. That is because of the bugs and having the Diamond Shield on it. I will get into these shields another day. Cleaning the front off I use anything and everything to help slide those bugs off. I even tried cooking spray one time. That is a whole new story. Don’t do it unless you have time to kill to clean up even more afterwards.
These new poly this and poly that I know very little. They seem to really shine quick but the actual true protection I know northing. I do use them and like them on my poly coated wheels after I’ve cleaned them.
I have settled into two waxes/polish that I like. First is McGuire's (sp?) Cleaner & Wax and the other is NuFinish Polish(orange bottle). I change wiping on and off rags often. The wiping on rag is very important and must be kept clean. I go thru about 10 plus soft rags like cheap (now) micro towels. I use to use a buffer but it seemed like it slowed me down. Plus it slings the stuff around and you need a lot of pads.
Now when I’m in Yuma I get my $100-125 wash and hand wax (McQuires liquid). Where? Just look in the Penny Saver mag. There’s about 3-4 outfits that do it.
We had a little social get together later in the day. Sue & John, Bernie & Carole, and Bill & Joyce all came over for a BS secession. Sue & JOHN both said they are planning for Alaska in 2014. They want to join the Loosey Goosey Club and go with us. I haven’t told them about the hazing yet. Oh well, got two years.
Lost another 2 lbs for a total of 18 lbs since my surgery. I want to lose a total of 23 lbs by Monday (11 days) for my blood work up. It will happen! I haven’t hit the wall yet. That’s a place where your body says that’s enough weight lost and then it becomes a very slow process. It’s due real soon. I’m not starving and eating regular meals just not being a glut. Also taking vitamins supplements and drinking Ensure. They’re like a flat milkshake but they have to be real cold for me. Anyhow, that’s the number of that……….
