    Okay, how about the Carnauba Jett beads first---frozen beads, that is! Took this pic on Wednesday just after it had rained with 27 degree temeratures. Fun.

    A few more of mine after using Optimum's Hyper Compound and Polish, both with green Propel lite cut pads, Jeff Werkstatt's Prime using a blue Propel finishing pad and Carnauba Jett by hand.

    Full sun shot-minor halo swirls appear to be gone!

    After the crappy weather (freezing rain, sleet and snow) plus all that sand they put down on the roads, mine really needed cleaning. I ended up adding another coat of Carnauba Jett and topped it with Natty's Blue. Took the pics in the sun, paint definitely looks black. I am trying to get it black hole black, or Event Horizon black if you will.

    ==============

    Chevy 1500 Silverado. Interior only. Not too bad, typical of most truck interiors I see. Coffee spills and dust mostly.

    The after pics show why interior before and afters can be tough. Clouds when I took the before shots, sun when I took the afters, which cast weird shadows in the interior, especially the carpet. Probably should have used flash when I took the pic of the back since the sun was pretty bright when I shot it. Live and learn.

    Woolite/water mix to clean, dressed vinyl with Armor All, rear vinyl seats with Meguiars Interior Quick Detailer, front leather with Turtle Wax Leather Cleaner/Conditioner.

    ===============

    2005 BMW 330ci. As I suspected, the pics are a little dark. The hazards of winter's early sunsets I guess. Regardless, the lady was very happy that I could make a noticable improvement on a brand new car and also happy she didn't let those hacks at Moritz BMW touch it. I've got her Mom's 330 sedan to do this weekend.

    =====================

    2004 Acura MDX. I wax this MDX about 5-6 times a year. The owner runs it through a touchless or the local tunnel wash 3-6 times a week, depending on the weather. Deep polished it with Optimum and topped with Glanz Wax back in October. Truck still looked really good but since I had JW's Prime, I wanted to use Acrylic Jett on it again now that I had the whole system.

    This one does. Definitely good looking and she used to ride a crotch rocket. No, no pics. She is internet savvy.

    Maybe when Meguiars invites me again. I detailed Erock's 350Z at a Meguiars detailing clinic, plus he learned how to do the work himself.

    If you are in an SUV club, you could probably get a Saturday detailing clinic set up at Meguiars headquarters in Irvine.
