    Cool Cleaned the O (pics)

    No work today and was bored at home so decided to clean the car.

    Started with the wheels, actually took them apart (2-piece) to get rid of all the hard to reach grime and give them a thorough cleaning. I used some off the shelf wheel cleaner and some smartwax wheel wax to finish them, they came up pretty good.

    Before:






    After:


    While I was at it I also gave the whole interior a clean and conditioned all the leather with some smartwax leather cleaner/conditioner I bought a while ago. Car now smells like a coconut.





    Lastly, I also gave the car exterior a wash and wax (you can guess the brand). As you can see the results weren't bad, but nothing amazing (overcast weather and crappy camera also partly to blame).







    obligatory engine bay shot:



    Might take some better pics if the weather decides to clear up. Thanks for looking.

    Yeah the leather is factory, still in pretty good nick. I wanted to condition the leather before summer to help protect it, as it takes a beating in the heat/sun...
