Winter Prep Ford Explorer Day 5

Fifth and final day.

Today I tied up all the loose ends. I polished the windshield and rear window with a small (3-inch) Griot’s Garage DA polisher with a glass polishing pad attached. I started out with CarPro Ceriglass polish on the pad, but quickly switched to Griot’s Garage’s own brand of glass polish since the Ceriglass was so totally bitchin’ hard to remove. I treated both windows with CarPro FlyBy30 glass coating.

I treated all exterior rubber trim/seals with Wolfgang Exterior Trim Sealant, sprayed some Meguiar’s Plastic & Vinyl Coating on the wheel wells/liners to black them out and finished off by dressing up the tires with Optimum Opti-Bond Tire Gel.

Closing arguments:

My car is shiny and well prepped for the winter season. But was it worth all the work? Let’s just say it’s going to be a looong time before I do anything like this again. I think I have Marianne’s car scheduled for something similar this weekend.
