Photos After Three Days of Detailing

As Mr. Miyagi said .. wax on wax off mo fugga! I'll start with the stop motion video which compresses the 3 days into 3 minutes. I probably spent about 6 hours each day of actual work. The car was in pretty good shape already, but it did have some swirls which I took care of.



Here are the setup shots when I was done.







Quick pics of the AFTERS






















































You can see some of the swirls on the left. The right is after Menzerna SIP.


Daylight sun shot. No swirls.


The Detail Cabinet



The Befores

Looks great overall! Absolutely respect the amount of time you put forth detailing, the results are there to show! Great looking over-all build with your mods. Very cleanly done.

What percent tint do you have done? (If any. I see it's very light)

The thing with detailing as with most things in life; "You get out of it as much as you put into it"

Looks gorgeous!! Amazing work!!

That was awesome! Great vid and fantastic detail job. Would love to do something like this but wouldn't know where to even start a project like this. Very impressive

What exactly did you use to get rid of the swirls? What kind of buffer, cutting agent etc...?

Thanks!
