    First, a couple quick shots of that metallic black CL500 from last time that were on this new roll. Optimum Compound with a Meguiars cutting pad, Optimum Polish with a Meguiars polishing pad and Optimum Car wax x 2.

    2006 Dodge Charger R/T. Stuck in a parking garage this time. He and his wife are getting a divorce so he moved to some nice loft apartment and the only place to work on his car is in the parking garage. Oh well, the lighting is pretty decent. Clearkote's Red Machine Glaze by hand, Poorboy's Natty's Blue Paste by hand.

    Just a quick shot of my 626 after a fresh coat of Meguiars #16. :)

    2002 Audi A6. 3 years old, end of lease, never been detailed. Interior actually wasn't too bad, mostly just a plethora of dog hair. Exterior was a bit different. Not horrible but lots of black spots on the hood and trunk lid. Claying didn't do much other then shear off the tops. Went with Optimum Compound and a Meguiars cutting pad on the hood and trunk lid, then Optimum Polish with a Meguairs polishing pad on the whole car, finished with Optimum Car Wax by hand. Didn't finish until about 20 minutes before sunset, so pics are a bit dark.

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

    1997 Mercedes SL500. Regular customer, I detail it about 3 times a year. Only has 44,000 miles on it. May be for sale early next year if her son buys her a new one for Christmas this year.

    Interior was pretty immaculate but the hood had some reall hard water spots on it. Really hard! I used a test version of Optimum Compound (a faster cut version) with a Meguiars cutting pad, then the regular version of Optimum Compound with another Meg's cutting pad. I then went over the whole car with Optimum Polish and a Meguiars polishing pad, Clearkote's Red Machine Glaze with a blue Propel finishing pad, and topped with Carnauba Moose Wax using a Meguiars finishing pad. Only two shots, last two on the roll. Wish I had another roll with me, I think this is the best the car has ever turned out. Just incredibly deep and wet-second shot really show it! :)

    2002 Jaguar S Type. Detailed at the end of August and topped with Detailer's Pride Premium Surface Shield. Took this pic yesterday (October 5th) after the 2nd straight week of using a new wash product. It isn't out yet so I am not saying who is making it. Don't PM me either because I won't respond to questions about the product until it is released for sale. I will say I like it very much. :)

    What do you call scratch marks that move with the reflection of the sun? Is it the paint itself or spider webbing?

    Spider or halo swirls. It is in the paint.

    Halo swirls! Fucking goddamm 2004 miata guy came into my dealership demanding we fix his paint. I told him it was something to do with the paint. We could clay and polish it but it'd come right back after he washed it. I told him to pound sand and he left.

    You aren't polishing it deeply enough then. 9 times out of 10 you can get halo swirls out. If they are coming back after polishing, the polish you are using has oils or fillers in it that are masking the true condition of the paint.

    Here is a before shot of that CL500-you can see halo swirls and some rotary swirls as well.

    After polishing only with Optimum's stuff (no fillers)

    And finished full on sun shot:

    Proper techinique, good product selection and the patience to do the job right and probably anyone can.

    I'm a Klasse / Souveran man myself, I don't have a business so I don't get to try out all the cool products like you, but my car consistently looks better than anything else on the road (college town, not a whole lot around here lol).

    You ever use Zaino on anything?

    Yeah, on my brother's silver Honda Odyssey. Looks pretty good but I am not a big fan of mixing in an accelerant that you have to pay extra for, and I don't get the layering fetish. Lasts a long time but other products look even better and I can use straight from the bottle or can.
