I've never done detailing before, ever. After lurking around and reading several guides and visiting detailing forums etc, I went out and purchased - Meguiars NXT Car Wash Meguiars Deep Crystal Paint Cleaner Meguiars Deep Crystal Polish Meguiars Gold Class Wax Invested into that stuff, got home, and decided I'd try it out on my mother's car. Spent 4 hours, by hand, fixing her up, and.. well, I'm too disappointed to even take pictures. Sure there's a bit of shine, but not that much of a difference from a regular hose-down + wipe. I'm pretty disappointed, however, I have a feeling a lot of it has to do with the fact that I dont have any hand-held rotaries or that other recommended machine called the UDM. I was thinking of purchasing a UDM, and some scrap doors from the junkyard just to practice. Ya'll think it'd be worth it? Would that actually make as much of a difference as I think it will? Cheers.
