Had it detailed by a good friend to help his business grow a little, a month or two ago. Fantastic job.

If the stars align and I'm able to remove both the left and right rear bearings tonight, I should be able to polish and Opti-seal my car tomorrow morning!

Reviving this thread here… I cleaned up my SVT with the foam cannon and gave the Extreme depth with X-seal along with some Butter Wet wax from Chemical guys…









Getting the car all cleaned up for the Summer, and getting it ready for the PWSC install…

When I bought the car and got it home I noticed lots of overspray on it.
Mainly the front end. I wet sanded the hood and fenders with 3000 grit.
I tried the Meguiars line of compounds and they just didn't do the job.
There must be a really hard clear coat on mine.

This is what did work.

Buffed with, XPC3, Turtle wax scratch and swirl remover.
Then applied 2 coats of Meguiars #7, 2 coats of Duragloss #111, Then 1 coat of S100 for the deep gloss.

Now to do the rest of the car. Don't think I'll need to wet sand tho.



When I got done with the front, The metallic jumped out at me.
