TREMENDOUSLY GREAT INFO!!!!!!! Thanks a ton! You definitely make me excited to get on my grind in upkeeping the whip.

One question though: I have an all black (inside and out) daily driver that's outside 24/7. Do you have any extra steps that might help me out better? Any alternate products to use or extra steps? Do I need any extra protection?

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks again!

I have never really been in the detailing section here on panoramic-3d.ru and let me tell you this thread is really good Picus thanks again!
so i basically need to get my paint back in shape since its an 03.5 and basically have only clayed and waxed in the past. from the write up I see that polishing or compounding is mainlly for paints with swirl marks well mine really doesnt have any swirl marks but rather some discoloration I guess called oxidation when seen at night under flourecent lighting such as at a gas station etc. My question is should I go with a good wash, clay bar, then polish and finally wax or seal? also, i dont have a PC but an old fashioned orbital will that do? thanks guys john

well b4 i read this thread, i had polished my car w/ PC. w/ little experience i left swirl marks on it. Some are just hard to removed. they are NOT scratched but seems like the paint has been 'burnt"...the body of the car does get hot after i polish...or "attempted" to polish. Could it be that i'm pressing too hard. I plan on getting more pads, currently i am using only one pad. the car looks nice and shinny but when the sun hits it at different angles you can see the swirl patterns. thanks for the help.

Thanks for all of your great info and time invested in putting all of this together. Quick question for you what would you recommend I use to get rid of acid rain/water spots on my side mirrors?

I'd referred back to this thread soo many times it's ridiculous. Been so useful and really glad and grateful that you took the time to write this up. Probably spent around $600 or so in detailing supplies as of right now based off of this hah.

Griots! Better than the pc 7424xp and cheaper.. You can pick one up for 100 or so new.

Detailing in the Washington DC area comes to your house!

Hey guys I found a guy that does waterless detailing and thought I'd share. He provides detailing service at your house, he did my car last week in the frigid cold since I can't wash my car in the winter...

picus, i would like to get your thoughts on Zymol products. their auto bathe, hd pre wax cleaner and the carbon wax (for darker vehicles).

also, anything you could say about interior, ie the dash and console area.

very informative thread, i appriciate this a lot. thank you.
