    I did this at a fraction of my regular hourly rate for a friend of mine at work with the stipulation that she not tell them the price. In return I have 4 other people from work wanting me to clean up their cars as well at a slightly reduced rate (15% less). Anyway, enough with the formalities.

    This 2005 Murano is in pretty good condition with the exception of wash induced swirls. I carefully explained and showed the owner the correct way to wash and not 5 days after I had detailed it she washed it with a dirty mitt and probably 50% of the swirls are back. Anyway, sorry for no 50/50 shots. I had basically 6 hours for the exterior as she didn't want the interior done so minus the windows inside and out I didn't touch the interior.

    Products used:
    1.5 ounces Megs Deep Purple Wash w/ 1 oz. Megs APC foamed
    Megs Deep Purple via 2BM to wash
    Clayed with Megs white clay while washing
    P21s wheel gel with swissvax brush and other various brushes
    Wheels wells and tires cleaned with Megs APC 4:1
    Dried with pakshak WW MF towels
    Opti Polish II via white pad for 85% of the car
    Opti Polish II via orange for 10%
    Megs 105 for 5% with orange on very problematic areas
    Sealed with CK Carnuaba Moose (thanks for the heads up scott)
    Chrome trim got AIO
    Tires were dressed with Adams VRT (only 1 coat is shown in pics as I was losing light)

    I apologize for the lack of pictures. As I previously stated, I only had about 6 hrs and was worried about getting it done in time.

    Before - Lacking a lot of depth and wetness

    Definitely a very noticable improvement! :)

    I think you will really like using CMW especially on black and red.
