    it was about 55 out yesterday so i went out and with the buffer and did a quick detail on my car, its already dirty lol. also thats a scuff mark where the bumper meets the rear quarter panel on passenger side there that the previous owner did, kind of sucks because i hate looking at it. and i also did feel like getting on the ground to polish the exhaust. and now looking at the second shot theres a spot of dirt next to the exhaust as well

    Optimum compound on an orange LC pad
    Optimum Polish on a white LC pad
    PB Sealant w/ carnuba on a gray LC pad
    Nattys blue on a blue LC pad
    armor all foam and armor all gel on the tires
    PB wheel sealant on the wheels.

    Nail Polish Remover. Get the pre-moistened wipes and wipe the sap right off. Just make sure to re-wax as it will strip the wax too.

    i use a paint reducer to remove sap, works awesome and so quick like magic, just have to wax afterwards. it is called omni paint reducer found at places that sell automobile painting stuff.
