Yeah I have that problem. I find myself drawn to the garage to "get something", but i'm really there to pet my pony (no, not THAT pony). I'm a glass-half-empty kinda guy, so I immediately get bummed after washing because I know in about an hour there will be dust showing up on my black stripes. Anone know how to get scuffs out of the black vinyl stripes? I've got two good ones on the trunk.

I wish I could do that, but by the time I am done it is 12am lol. Last time I washed the car, clayed, 3 coats of wax, and then sealant, and it seriously took me about 15 hours. I will never do that much work again.

Yup, everytime I wash and wax her, I can't help but stare. My old car, which was a Tracker, took me all of maybe 30 minutes to wash. The stang takes 3 hours easy

I just waxed mine for the first time and the paint felt like crap, you could see small black specs in the paint. It sat in Chicago for a couple weeks before I bought it and had it shipped down here, so I'm not sure what happened to it in that time, but has been garaged ever since. Luckily a little claybar action made it smooth as a baby's butt again. Then, yes, it was time to stare and look in awe
