So what did you do to your Elantra today? It doesn't matter if it was a minor thing. Let the group know.

Pics would be great too. :lol:

Welcome to the club. What did you use after the clay bar?

Claying is great for removing contamination but it only makes the surface ready for protection, so I was curious what wax/sealant etc you used ...

And wow, I'd like to see your orange beauty. I don't think I've seen an XD that color before.

Cleaned the inside... Outside is hopeless anymore.
while on the interior topic.... what's the best way to cover a crack on the dashboard? I don't mean repair, but just cosmetically cover it from being visible.

Short of repair there is no really decent way of hiding it. Are you talking a hairline crack?

No. It's a mouth wanting to swallow coins, etc.
