    2010 Camaro SS - Black and swirled!

    This is my friend's car. He's a cop, so I spit on it. OK that was a corny joke.

    Anyways, he picked this car up last June and it's been in serious need of a detail. Lots of swirls, and what pissed me off the most was all the wax in the edges of his stripes. I ended up using Menzerna Super Intensive Polish via LC Tangerine Hydro-Techs, and they left such a nice finish that I was able to go straight to PO85RD with a gray finishing pad.

    The worst part about this detail was the weather. Storms were looming all day and finally let out as I was finishing up. My Menzerna SIP was acting up due to the humidity, leaving gummy chunks of polish and dust everywhere, so I ended up re-washing the car in the pouring rain. The car also didn't fit all the way in the garage, so I had to seal the back half of the car while the front got poured on, then back it all the way in, dry the front and finish. What a nightmare!


    Wash:
    Meguiar's Gold Class Shampoo
    P21S Wheel Cleaner Gel
    Poorboy's APC
    Daytona Speedmaster Wheel Brush
    Clean Wheel Lug Nut Brush
    Sheepskin mitt
    Lake Country wash sponge
    Pinnacle Microfiber Detailing Mitt
    Two-bucket method w/ Grit guards

    Clay:
    DP Universal Detailing Clay
    DP Universal Clay Lubricant

    Paint Correction:
    Flex XC3401VRG Dual Action Polisher
    Lake Country 6.5" Hydro-Tech Tangerine pads
    Lake Country 6.5" Flat Gray Finishing Pads
    Menzerna Super Intensive Polish
    Menzerna PO85RD Micro Polish
    Menzerna Top Inspection
    3M Automotive Performance Masking Tape

    LSP:
    ??? Mystery Sealant ???
    Optimum Opti-Seal on wheels, exhaust tips, door/trunk/hood jambs

    Tires, trim, etc:
    303 Aerospace Protectant on all trim
    Poorboy's Bold 'N Bright on tires
    Menzerna Polishing Cream on exhaust tips









    I spent a good bit of time with Menzerna Top Inspection and a microfiber getting all the wax out of the edges....






    Test spot time!












    Broke out the trusty little PC7424 with 4" pads for the bumper. I was working PO85RD in this picture.














    Leave me alone, I'm polishing!

    OK, now the second worst part of this detail. I couldn't get any "after" shots. I was stuck in the tiny one car garage, and it was dark and pouring outside. These were the only shots I managed to take.










    BUT, you know I wouldn't do that to you guys. My friend was nice enough to take some pics of the car a few days later.
