Wash to Wax for Rookies

Being a rookie to the "car detail" process I discovered these videos with the help of "UltimateBMW". I ripped them from the website (http://paintcare-n-detailing.com/pinnacle.html) and uploaded them to YouTube so they can be more easily accessed by the unwashed masses (pun intended). I have no affiliation with the makers of the products used in the videos, I am simply posting these videos to help those out that are looking for a little direction in detailing your car.

Washing


Wheels


Drying


Clay Bar


Polishing


Waxing


Interior Care


Final Results

How many of you guys use some sort of power-tool to wax and polish your cars? My friends in college owned a detailing company, and they used one, but I've a) never invested, and b) always been a little scared.

Can I just use my drill?
