I'm finally going to have time to take this project on with my own car and well be documenting the whole process, from wash, decontamination, engine, interior, leather, compounding, polishing, finishing polish, and still undecided on LSP (maybe a coating)

Its not a focus, but this was a picture I took a few years ago helping my grandfather detail his Pontiac Grand Prix. You can clearly see which half of the hood had been polished and which half hadn't. This was using Optimum Hyper Compound on an Orange LC Pad and a porter cable 7424.
