Stunning results on a beautiful car but.....

Three days of deatailing!?? Are you nuts!? I hope you're putting the car into a trophy case after all that or what's the point. Sorry but I just don't understand this extreme level of TLC for a car I assume you will drive again. I also wonder if you are married or have a gf and what your partner thinks of the attention you give your car. I enjoyed watching your video with my wife (while sitting here watching t.v.) but I gotta tell ya she just didn't get it.

FWIW though that was an amazing transformation.

I have some on the left seat cushion (kinda like what would be touching your left thigh on the side. I don't do anything special though. I even slide down into the seat sometimes with my shorts back pocket flap grinding over the threads of the bolster. FWIW the car has 14k miles on it.

I only do it once a year. It's mostly to get rid of the swirl marks which you cant do any other way. Throughout the rest of the year it's a regular car wash/dry/vacuum/windows that takes bout 2-3 hours. Every now and then I'll throw on a coat of JetSEAL Sealant. The wife understands =)

Great job.

very good job. thought I was the only one who put so much attn into detailing. lol Still, having a car port instead of a garage hinders a lot of what i'd like to do. In fact, after watching this, I feel like going outside and putting in a few hours... :-)

No. JetSEAL is a sealant. Using a polisher and abrasive polish on an abrasive pad will get rid of swirls. Glazes can help fill in the scratches and make them appear less, along with sealants and waxes though.
