    Detailed my car yesterday!

    Sup guys. Never mentioned it before but detailing is one of my favorite hobbies, next to working on car and my audio system

    last time i detailed my car was in May of 2012, a little over a year ago. My car had a bunch of swirls and light scratches and water spots and whatnot so I decided to go ahead and fully detail my car today.

    Products used/Directions

    Washed with Dawn soap - 2 bucket method
    Clay barred entire car
    washed car again/dried
    Megs Microfiber d300 Compound with MF cutting disc
    Megs d301 polish with finishing disc
    Four Star ultimate paint protection sealant using white foam pad
    Chemical guys Blacklight
    Blackfire Aluminum compoound with fine grade steel wool for the exhaust polish
    stoners window cleaner
    Meguiars Ultimate black trim restorer
    purple power on wheels then rinsed and cleaned again with soap and water with microfiber towel/dried and sealed with blackfire wet diamond/collinite 845 insulater wax
    Ultima tire and trima guard plus used to coat tires and do interior as well



    Man! the car is so freakin slick and shiny its unreal, i miss my car being like this as i took a little break from detailing due to school/studying for dental school and work but im back at it again!

    anyways

    here is some before pictures

















    (this was completely removed)

    r something. Stay tuned!

    My coating on the car protects the paint from damage such as that. I do not need to wax my car at all, it shines like the sun from the Wetgloss.
