    so last thursday I had a chance to polish up my car I had oxidation problems, http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=3170957 and I did what scottwax said, wash, then #83 then #80 then wax with #26 and added a claybar after the wash and didnt use the #80 since it was getting late and I was tired, it also looked good after the #83 so I figured there was no need. The whole process lasted about 10 hours by hand :o anyway heres the pics,
    This is one last before,
