    Well done! Now, only use a 100% cotton made in the U.S.A. towel to wash/dry/buff that puppy to avoid additional swirlies.

    Haha I don't get swirls from that, I haven't detailed the car fully like this since 07 basically, just wax usually. And I don't use a rotary so I don't get swirls from that either.

    For this one it was like 8hrs, usually its 5-6hrs but darker colors are more of a pain lol.
