    Detailed last weekend...
    CG= chemical guys
    PC= porter cable

    1. Wash with mit and two bucket method using CG citrus wash.
    2. dry using micro fiber towel
    3. clay bar with lube
    4. mask off all black plastic parts (recommend good blue 3M tape)
    5. using a PC buff using CG final polish on a finishing pad
    6. apply CG jetseal using PC with a ultra fine finishing pad (hand apply to cleaned wheels) and buff out haze with microfiber
    7. apply two coats by hand of CG 50/50 wax and buff with microfiber
    8. remove masking tape and wipe and leftover product with microfiber
    9. apply very carefully to rubber and trim CG fade2black

    I used CG stuff cause it was recommended to me but these are the steps I usually use. Most people usually do the wheels/tires first when they detail because of over spray but I like to do them last so I can use the same mitt on the whole car without rubbing break dust all over.

    Some Pics...

    I'm envious, good work. I'm still trying to figure out what I need to get rid of the haze / spotting on my black 04.

    It took about 6 hours from start to finish. I suppose it could be done alot faster but I wasn't in a hurry.

    Disclaimer...I am no expert.
    IMO it depends on how bad it is. If you have really bad haze or scratches it could take some more aggressive product for buffing that what I used. If you don't want to tackle something like this you could always get it done professionally. It's a lot easier to keep it looking decent then to get it there. Don't go to carwashes, only wash with two buckets. Don't let water dry on it. It's tough on a daily driver but I have a truck that I drive when the weather is bad. Black looks great when it's clean and sucks the rest of the time.
