😀IMHO some folks on the forums (a minority) are way too worried about the looks of their vehicles.

That is basically my motto as well. I do try to wash it every 4 weeks or so simply because I like it clean looking but otherwise I do not fret over the thing.
Once I got past the first few dings and scratches and realized it didn't affect our enjoyment of it at all I learned to relax and enjoy.

Who's fretting, it's just routine maintenance. I've had cars that rust, houses that need paint, guns that need cleaning, a body that had cancer. Preventive care helps them all, and sometimes they need fixing anyway.

[QUOTE=Pongo;1811206]Do you wax? If so, do you wax before or after the CorrosionX process?

I wash, apply Corrosion X then wax
