A Little Deep Cleaning...

This Cobra used for some track duty here recently and got pretty dirty, heading to a show this weekend and needed to get cleaned up. This is good to do once a year to keep things under control. This is the first time we've been able to give it a thorough deep cleaning. Hopefully we can continue to keep it this way(hint hint)


Looks pretty clean huh?




Nice bugs!




Nasty, dirty wheels!




Get those wheels off, and we can really get in there




Check out the inside of these wheels!




Gotta let these soak a while!




Not perfect, but much better!



Couple of side by sides. Notice the difference?

Thanks guys! I really enjoy doing work like this. Something about deep cleaning that I really like Almost as much as polishing paint.

Nick,

The car looks fantastic! We are very pleased and will pass your name on to our car buddies. It has never looked better. I know you're going to hate me for this, but we put the cover on it and stuck it back in the building till the AER show Saturday morning.

At your suggestion I threw out the tire treatment I was using.

Here is a pic of my 65 at the 45th in Birmingham I was telling you about. Never been washed.

We did not drive it on the track!
