Showin off my ride after detailing
 
6 Attachment(s)
Hi all,

Thanks to all on the forum for all the valuable info. You helped me with product as well as pointing me in the direction of some great detailing sites. Here is my ride after detailing.

Week 1:
Washed with Meguire's Gold car wash (with Sheep skin mitt)
Claybar with Meguire's claybar kit
Blackfire wet Diamond using Porter Cable 7424XP Random Orbital Buffer
Tuf shine tire appearance kit for tires

Week 2:
Washed with Meguire's gold car wash
another coat of Blackfire wet Diamond

Now the pictures:

Tomorrow after the Blackfire cures I'll hit it with Blackfire midnight Sun Carnauba Paste Wax.

Sweeeeeet.:)

Great looking JEEP. I have a question. My WK2 is about 4 months old and I regularly wash it. I have waxed it once with Meuire's Ultimate and use Meguire's Quik Wax for touch up. Since the paint is relativelly new and maintained, is it still necessary to Claybar it before using Blackfire Wet Diamond?

I thought the same thing. However, after I used the clay bar I noticed a big difference. They say that even a new car picks up contaminants while being delivered, such as rail dust. The clay bar just ensures the paint is prepped for the Black wet diamond. Here's a nice article on it: http://www.detailedimage.com/Ask-a-P...roduct-review/

Good luck
