its that time again. time to get the car all cleaned up for the summer months ahead. spent 8 hrs last weekend and took it out today to a local park to enjoy the pretty weather. no professional shots here, just some snaps with a 8mp olympus dc.
for anyone interested, heres the process of the detail:
CG citrus wash & gloss ( 1oz/1 gal )
CG p40 polish w/ lc ccs white pad
CG glossworkz glaze w/ lc ccs blue pad
CG xxx hardcore paste wax ( 2 coats applied by hand )
CG innerclean for the dash and console
Jaxwax Super Blue & Stoners More Shine for trim and tires
( porter cable 7424xp used )
overall, i am very pleased with the outcome. the xxx wax gave the silver more depth than i was expecting. just purchased CG's body wash & wax along with their instawax ( or express carnuba ) to add to my collection. excited to try these out to help maintain the finish.
sorry, there's no process pictures . fail.

That looks awesome. I used Blacklight on my car but I felt like it didn't do the same. Maybe I'll give the hardcore paste a try.

jrad - i may very well be wrong but i was thinking that blacklight is actually more of a AIO. although i have heard it does give a nice finish, it really pops topped with the v7 spray. xxx wax is actually marketed for black & red cars but i am somewhat of a wax junkie, so i had to have some. to my surprise, it works great on silver too!
Looks great, everything flows together like it should.
