Some post-detail pics...

I took delivery a few weeks ago (after a Euro Delivery in early July) and decided to detail the car this past weekend.

This was the process...
- Sonax Full Effect on the wheels
- 2 bucket wash with Griot's car wash
- Clay with uber fine
- Griot's Machine Polish 3 w/ PC 7424
- Griot's Best of Show wax
- Adam's Super VRT for the tires

I don't have any before photos and the few photos below don't do a great job of showing the results. I removed most of the micro scratches, but really should have done another polish with Griot's #2 or #1 to make it perfect. As such, I only applied 1 coat of the Best of Show wax since I will probably re-do the entire process in a few weeks.
