    Finally busted out my new PC, and my truck didn't get the treatment, the wife's car did. I used Meguiars Gold Class wash, Clay Magic Clay, Optimum Polish, Jeff's Werkstatt Prime, and Acrylic Jett.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. Probably gonna be getting rid of the car soon, even though we just bought it in January. Looking at a possible trade for a Golf TDI. Chipped and all!! 150HP, 300Lb/Ft torque, 50MPG!!!!!!!!!! And it's white, no more black cars for this guy.

    Yeah, if it rains 3 states over it gets water spots!! I don't have any swirls though, thank God.

    my wife's was swirled to shit...

    i started by using optimum compound and a light cutting pad
    and stepped it up to optimum hyper compound and a medium cutting pad..and that made a pretty big difference!!!

    I just used the optimum polish and a polishing pad.

    But here's a question that's been bugging me. I washed, and clayed the whole car. My WHITE polishing pad turned BLACK!! Could this be an indication of single-stage paint??!! The car looks to have been repainted.
