    I spent countless hours over the last handful of weeks doing a full bottom side and engine bay detail + corrosion control. Anything I could see or get to with a rag or a rag on a stick got completely cleaned of dust/dirt/grease/grime! After the cleaning step, I hit the light surface rust areas with Permatex Rust Disolver followed by Permatex Rust Treatment. I did not touch the unfinished axle, rotors or driveshaft. I did the same to the engine bay... anything I could get to with a rag and some cleaner got degreased. Once the engine was fully cleaned, I hit it with some spray shine to give it a bit of a pop! The paint just needed a quick wipe with detail spray and the glass was hit with Windex. The interior was already pretty clean, but I did hit everything with a vacuum.

    The car has not been this clean since it left the factory!

    I put together a little iMovie on my phone and put it to one of the top songs from 1993!

    I took a bunch of pictures of the end results... many of them are in the video above. The only picture I took “during” was when my oldest son came down to the garage and helped me one night. We both worked on getting rid of dirt/grease/grime from the bottom. He is 6’4” and is happy I bought the extra tall lift.

    Thanks! 11k and change. It’s a fun time capsule still riding on its original tires and sporting its working “new tech” CD player!

    Very nice! I especially like the pics of the Teal over that amazing floor in your man cave. Looks sick!
