    Awesome job, man!
    How do you like working with the PC so far?
    It's pretty easy, huh? It has an easy learning curve

    You could apply the XMT Ultra Fine Swirl Remover with a white polishing pad, or an orange pad for best results

    The car looks great. Another success story!

    Thanks man. IMO the PC is great. My cars paint looked terrible when I first bought it from neglect and just plain carelessness. The hood and wing had terrible scratches and I honestly was gonna get the car painted immediately because it bothered me so bad-until I talked to you a long time ago and found out about Autogeek.com and the PC 7424. By doing a little research I bought the XMT swirl remover,a PC, the correct pads and got all the defects out of the paint. The PC,because it is so user friendly,it takes a little patience while using it to get results-but to me thats just fine-better then burning the paint. To anyone who has swirls,scratches,need paint correction, or just wants to apply the things needed to make the paint look great/protected-buy a PC 7424 and the proper pads/products and you wont be sorry. Much thanks to you GOOSE for all the knowledge and help.

    I think its worse in summer.. than it is right now. if you drive slow it wont get your car too dirty. but when its dusty its gonna get all over your car regardless. I usally detail my wheels in town after waxing the car at home...for obvious reasons.

    well, I cant vote in the poll... guess I dont have enough posts. But using a carnauba, I usually rewax every 6-8 weeks. Sealants, I tend to let go a little longer, like 8-10.

    6-8 weeks for Carnuba seems right-seems most carnubas dont last too much longer than a month

    yea, thats for ideal conditions. If the car sees adverse conditions or 90+ degree heat/sun, I'd suggest rewaxing a little sooner.
