    I finally got to use my PC 7336 on my car today. The car wasn't in bad shape so I didn't really take any befores. The pictures didn't turn out too well b/c I forgot my camera at home and had to use my mom's. There are still some minor marks in teh clear coat, but I can get that at another time I guess. For now it looks alright to me. I'm just happy becuase I got silver to look a little wet. Hopefully you guys can see it in the pics. Let me know wha you guys think.

    Body:
    Wash w/ Mcguire's Gold Class
    Clay w/ Mother's Clay Bar
    Wash w/ Mcguire's GC
    Optimum Polish via PC @ 5 w/ Sonus SFX 2 light swirl remover pad
    Optimum Poli-Seal via PC @ 4ish w/ Sonus SFX 3 final finish pad
    Natty's Red by hand

    Wheels/Tires:
    Mcguire's Hot Rims All Wheel Cleaner
    Eagle One Nano Polish
    Poorboy's Wheel Sealant
    Mcguires Hot Tires Tire Shine

    This shot is after polish and poli-seal.

    Excellent job, Amill94! That paint does look drippin' wet and glossy. :bowdown: ...and you showed love to the wheelwells, Good work, overall! :bigthumb:

    BTW - you said that the paint wasn't bad before using the PC, but did the PC polish/seal improve the paint significantly?

    BTW - Acura crew :h5:

    Thanks for the compliments. What Acura do you have? I have a few more cars that I will do over the next few weeks. My g/f has a 06 Diamond White Pearl TL, and I'll be doing a black 05 Accord coupe.

    The polish and seal improved the paint. I taped off half yhe hood and did polish and poli seal and noticed the paint looked clearer and the metalic flake stood out more than before. I was used to working with silver and not getting a noticeable improvement. Last year I clayed, and used meguiars 81 by hand, then nxt, then s100 and got very little improvement. The process I used yesterday made the time and effort more worthwhile.

    WDP on a TL will look great after the PC rubdown. You'll make your GF real happy with the results!! Here's my old car (2005 TL) after polish and sealant/wax.

    Nice pics Run N Gun. I especially like the Kinetic Blue. I'm hoping to bring out some of the flake in the paint on her car. I'll have to post up some pics when I do it in a few weeks.

    Oh, I forgot to ask this earlier. When using the Natty's Red...I applied it to the enitre car and then let it dry for 10 minutes or so ontop of the application time. It was harder to remove than other waxes I've used. I had to rub pretty hard. Are there any other tricks for removal? Can I use a moist mf towel that is misted with some QD or something to make removal easier?
