I'd like to keep my 06 GT nice - but I've found it tough to keep the nose clean! Do you guys do anything besides use a Qtip to keep the grille clean? All those hard to get spots...

I use a fairly long bristle, square head wheel brush. Plastic offset handle and the head is about 6" square, with bristles about 2 1/2" long. Works fairly well with a little determination.


The bugs on the bumper, on the other hand.....

I just use my wash mitt, followed by a nice rinse. Then I take my hand-dandy air compressor and BLOW THE HECK out of the thing. :laughlitt :wavey

i have one of those fancy hand-held steam cleaners you see on informercials...I use it on the grill, and it actually works pretty well. Add a soft brush, as mentioned above, and you're good to go.


Incidentally, the steam cleaner works for sh!t on wheels, regardless of what the commercials show. It'll blow off surface dust, but brake dust still requires a good scrubbing.

I use a soft camel-hair brush and Mequires detail spray. Put a mist on the brush, clean the section, repeat until finished. Use a separate brush to sweep after drying. Occasionally I use original ArmorAll if the plastic looks too dull afterward, but most times it comes out clean and fine.:wavey

Good advice here; I was hoping I'd be able to do a short cut and spray something on/wash off (as long as it wasn't too dirty anyway). There are just so many little cracks and little spaces all over the car to get clean and I was hoping for something easy... :)

swap the grille out for a street scene and they are really easy to keep clean.......:cool: and as for the bottom one if you swapped to the agressive cdc front spoiler it takes it away.....:cool: just a thought....and it looks cool too....
