    Detailed my car finally!!!

    I detailed my car over the past couple of days. I need another back surgery and cant bend very well so its not perfect but I am pleased.
    I did the following:
    1) washed car using armorall car wash
    2) Pinnacle intermediate swirl remover with Lake C. Orange pad with my Porter Cable set on #4
    3) Pinnacle light swirl remover with Lake C. finishing pad with my Porter Cable set on #4
    4) Hand applied Black Velvet wax for black cars

    Here are a few pics but I didnt get any close ups-sorry





    Its not a Goose detail job for sure!! That guy does some increadable work.
    I couldnt do the wheelwells but maybe I can con my sister into doing it for me. LOL
    Maybe when I lower my car the wheelwells wont be visable.

    Looks awesome. It looks like it brought the black out of the car. Nice job!

    Thanks it really did. My car could really use a paint job but I am happy for now. It had massive scratches in the hood and rear wing and they are not noticable anymore(those scratches were making me sick!!!).

    I know it looks cool to take the molding off but wal-mart is hell for shopping carts into the side of your car and dont forget the idiots that just swing their doors open so far it smacks your door.Gotta love that.

    Now that you have the PC, keep practicing. The Pinnacle line is pretty good. There are also a lot of products, of which I could recommend to you that will do an outstanding job using the PC
