I currently own a white 2009 honda fit that i purchased about a month ago. The car looked clean until i saw it at night under the street lights and noticed swirls and slight oxidation.
I decided to clean it up considering im going to be keeping this car for a while. Now im no stranger to detailing. I was a production detailer for 6 years at a local auto dealer. No experience with chemicals other than what we used in the shop.
I puchased a porter cable and wolfgang swirl system from AG along with a bunch of other goodies like a foam gun, grits for the bottom of my buckets. mf towels, clay, etc... Wolfgang Porter Cable 7424 Swirl-Free Kit
My issue im having is after i did the full process on the car step by step with each pad the car looked great during the day. Once i got it back under the steet lights i noticed I had (hate to describe it this way) clouds. Just not nice clear reflections. No real swirls (its not 100% but white is hard to do during the day). Now my spoiler (plastic) looks nice and clear giving a perfect reflection but my hood (which i spent the most time on) roof and doors have this chemical looking cloud.
I washed, clayed, and followed the system. Put the sealer on and whiped it off right away but let the car sit overnight (12 hours) then i used a mothers carnuba wax.
I dont have a very good camera to take pictures with but im hoping someone can point out my error and get me moving in the right direction.
