What have you done to your QX60 Today?

Today I removed the "Carmax" sticker on the back, removed the "3.5" badges on the fender, replaced the cars battery and the batteries in both remotes, and washed it.

Washed it with Dawn to strip it down. Tomorrow the work begins.

In a way, yes. The original blue Dawn dish washing liquid is supposed to strip off any existing waxes already on the car. I use it as the first step in building back up the paint protection. I have no idea what was done to this car already as far as detailing so I am going to do it myself so I know it's protected. Next step is a claybar or Nanoskin to remove any wax left and also remove particulates embedded in the paint. That's what I'll start with tomorrow.

Did the whole car with a Nanoskin Autoscrub. Then hit most of it with Meguiars 205 and a white pad. Then 2 coats of Zaino Z2 polish. The paint feels smoother than glass.

Put new LED bulbs in the back seat and tried to put one in the rear hatch cargo area, but the little sucker popped up into the hole in the light fixture and is now lost in the headliner. Time to order another.

I'm jealous, I wish I had the time and patience to give my vehicle a good cleaning.

Tundra Fan - can I ask you how you removed the Carmax sticker? I would really like to remove the dealer sticker (oblong about 1.5" x 4.5") on my QX60 but it seems like it's really on there!
