Me loves Fusion

Once again, I cleaned up our 2010 Fusion SEL. I drove it for the day and when I got home, felt she needed a bath. I didnt take that many pics last time so this time i got some good uns:

From when I waxed it two weeks ago with AutoGlym High Definition wax. Water still beads like a mother:

Decided to wait. If he still has them after wedding, we'll get them kr if someone buys hers we will get them. Just don't need to carelessly buy wheels when we have a wedding to finish paying for.

You should be able to use a heat gun to remove the decal a hair dryer will work too but it'll take longer. Same with removing emblems.

Edit: I forgot to mention to use rubbing alcohol to remove any left over glue.
