Sorry not a lot of pictures. Customer offered great conversation so I kinda forgot to take more pics during the process.

One-Step polish. I decided to put 2 coats of JetSeal. Since white doesn't shine like black or red, I decided to make it extra slick instead

List is probably not complete, but you guys get the idea.

I love your detailing style Man!
I noticed I have a similar method, it pretty motivating. And since I just purchased the DI Advanced Complete Detailing Kit from DI, I cant wait to start pro-style detailing all the cars at home.
