    When it's raining, I take it as a sign to go and cultivate more business.
    I did this last week and picked up this ride. The owner has a local cabin rental agency that is top notch here in the mountain. She has 10 employees and several company vehicles so I had to do this one right! This is her baby and I was told that if she is letting me touch it, she must really like me!
    Here's what this one got....

    Meguiar's NXT Car Wash
    (Added 2 teaspoons of Dawn to aid cleaning.)
    (Clayed while washing.)

    Optimum Compound
    (E2K Green pad set at #6)
    Used this and loved it. Only have to use very little and work time is forever. I had no dusting and it removed alot of imperfections. Came of super easy too. Also used it to polish out the head lights....were both starting to haze.

    Meguiar's #80
    (E2K Orange pad set at #5)
    Used this more as a polish this time than to cut with. Filled what scratches and swirls that were left. Some where really deep. I really like this pad for this. Very smoothe and linear. I moved alot fast than using it for cutting too. Gave nice depth in my opinion.

    Poorboy's EX-P
    (E2K White pad set at #3)
    I had a sample of this sent to me and decided to try it out on this one. Was thinner than I expected and smelled like coconut. Went on smooth. Only need a little to go a long ways here. Came off so easy. Gave a wet, shell like coat that made this black mirror-like.

    Other Products used:
    FK1 Protectant
    (Under hood, wheel wells, and on all plastic and leather)
    Meguiar's APC
    (Used on carpets, mats, wheels and tires. Mixed 4:1)
    Woolite 8:1
    (Used to clean leather)
    Armor All Tire Gel
    (Used on tires)
    Stoner's Invisible Glass

    Before's

    Superb work! The paint looks really rich and deep. :drool:

    Don't you hate when you take your befores the sun moves or it clouds over before you can take your after shots?

    Not suprised you liked Optimum Compound, really excellent product.

    Nice job, but I think you forgot the wheel wells. It already looks good, but it would looks so much better if you cleaned them out, too.
