Recent purchase for my son (first car). 2017 V6 Grabber Blue.

We foam cannon washed, clay bar, cannon washed, polished in two steps with Meguiars 105/205 using DA, cannon washed, sealed with Chemical Guys Jet Seal, waxed with Chemical Guys Butter Wax, cleaned wheels with Chemical Guys Wheel Cleaner and our foam cannon wash, Chemical Guys Tire Shine, polished all the black plastic with Car Guys Plastic Restorer, polished exhaust tips with 0000 steel wool, polished (Megs 205) and recoated the headlights (Meg Headlight Coating Spray). There were also several washes in between as we couldn't complete all the process in between drives.

I love the outcome - just glad we won't have to do all these steps again real soon. He's proud, and I agree he has something to be proud of. Beautiful car - not perfect but dang nice.

It's not visible in pics, but front bumper has fair amount of road rash. And you can see the quick-release buttons we installed into the bumper as the tabs were torn off passenger side. The buttons look pretty good though I think.

What my son doesn't know is I purchased a 2017 Grabber Blue take off front bumper that I found locally that has 0 miles on it. I'm going to wait a while - maybe until high school is over to give it to him...as I am sure the bumper will see more rubs and scrapes with a young driver. Fresh bumper is wrapped and hidden away in the attic.

Sorry for all the words - just a lot of work to describe
