Pictures from Meguiar's 8/24 Detailing 101 Class

2012 black Acura was in the garage for our demonstration car today. Looks OK without direct light reflecting on the panel right?



Let's look a little closer..



Little more...



YIKES!



After a waterless wash with our Ultimate Waterless Wash & Wax, we started using our C2000 Professional Mild Detailing Clay.





Ultimate Compound, DFC5 Soft Buff D/A Foam Cutting Disc, MT300 Dual Action Polisher, 5000 - 5800 OPMS, around 4 passes per 2 two ft square section, moderate pressure, moderation arm speed.







After Ultimate Polish via DFF5 Soft Buff D/A Foam Finishing Disc, we applied a coat of Ultimate Paste Wax (a little thick I must admit)



And after a few steps we were looking much better!
