12 hr detail I'm dead

So I finally cleaned out my garage, and I can use it now. I spent 12 hrs detailing my balt. Wash, clay bar, wash again, Meiguires 3 step thing pre wax, polish, and wax. I also got my LSJ downpipe today but theres no way I was gonna install it after 12 hrs of detailing... :lol:

thats cool you got a garage, and thats cool you cleaned your car, but why both of the together. that looks way to tight to clean a car in. Why didnt you just do it in your driveway?

i'm sure you could leave the door open and crank the radio so you could hear it outside, that woulda been the easier way to do it!

and BTW, did you clean the inside of your car too? that should be part of detailing a car

i just figured he had music because of the lap top pic.
and after 12 hours, i would assume he did the inside too.

Oh because I just finally finished cleaning it out yesterday. And I did do it in my driveway but then it got dark out. The clay bar I did in the garage cause I didn't want direct sunlight on it while I was claying. The rewash, pre wax, and half of polishing was done outside. The pic of me using the red powerball is me finishing up the polishing. Here's a before pic of my garage only I didn't get one right before I started wish I did but it was a lot worse than this

Yeah rained here good thing I can use the garage now And also I started to put music on but then I realized I'd never hear it cause I was using my phone for music since my laptop USB is broken and I can't transfer the music =/ So I didn't have any music at all wouldn't hear it anyway using those powerballs. So yes 12 hrs with out music lol. But it's ok I'm not a big music person.
