For my Mustang, a detail will last about 12 to 13 hours. It's physically back breaking, hot, and uncomfortable. My OCD just gets the best of me!I used to be the psycho that got up at dawn to hand-detail int/ext every week [min 4 hrs b/c I have ocd issues]...for years I did this! Now I go to a great car wash I found that has semi-touch less soft wash exterior for $9; then I go home for wipe/dry and interior detail myself and wax once a month. I've saved about 2 hours a week easily in my time. I just dont have the time or energy anymore, we had major covid staff/salary cuts and I need the added time to make more money or REST!
I am sooooooooooo glad I bought my truck slightly used or I would be as insane about the condition of the truck as I am about the condition of my Mustang! This past Sunday I went out on an all day 4x4 expedition in the truck, and it got very muddy and it collected a few pin-stripes. On Monday, I pressure washed all of the mud off of it and out from under it, and then I cheated! Now-de-mudded, I took it down the street and had a car wash crew wash it while I waited. In 10 minutes they hand washed it, dried it, vacuumed it, wiped down all of the interior, cleaned the glass, wiped down the door jams, and gave it back to me!
