    Just kidding I did not use any cquartz. This is Better than bringing to a detail, car wash, or dealership place. They usually miss LOTS of details. Hence why we should do it ourselves.

    I spent 3 hours today detailing and hand washing my hellcat's exterior, engine bay and up to the interior door sills. Didn't have time to go interior yet.

    Got a stab wound in my thumb nail while detailing the engine bay but it's no pain no gain.

    Man it was crazy hard work once again but so rewarding!

    Things I used:
    1 Bucket of water
    2 Meguiar Microfiber mitts
    1 garden hose
    1 grass food hose water feeder mixer (poor folks soap suds maker however I did order a more professional soap Suds water hose mixer on the way per SRT_HC_707 's recommendation so it should cut my rinsing and wash time by 50%.)
    1 meguiar ultimate rinse and wax shampoo
    1 meguiar tire shine
    1 black magic pro shine
    10 microfiber high quality pieces
    3 hours or so of labor and time

    Enjoy the pics

    Looks EXCELLENT. Nothing like the satisfaction and sore muscles that follow detailing your own car.

    How did you tag me? I see that done but not sure how to do it!

    Lmfao you are so graphic. There was blood oozing out while detailing my engine bay. I sucked it up and kept working like a real man would. No pain no gain :p

    If that's true then that is MORE dangerous than going to the dragstrip:p

    HellcatdotClub OK, I just tried to tag you... Very cool. Is this stuff documented somewhere? Thanks for the tip and your car looks great... Keep that thumb out of the intake.
