Just bought an E from my dad two weeks ago ('05 EX 4WD) only 28 000Km's with extended warranty until 2012. Mom bought it new in '05 with all the accessories /toys but unfortunately passed away in '07 and it has only been driven about a month each summer since to keep it operational (dad's a ford guy :roll:) Been doing alot of reading here for the last couple weeks and learned alot from you guys/gals and hope to learn more, so thought it was about time to say "Hi". :grin:

Thanks. I used 3M hand polishing compound that a buddy at a body shop told me about and finished it off with Mothers Carnuba wax. For washing I use Turtle wax Zip carwash soap (very mild detergent) and then use low gloss Armor All (doesn't collect dust) on the plastic trim and panels. I've been using these products for almost 20 yrs with great results.
