View Full Version : Detailed the car

05-27-2012, 02:37 PM
The paint had a good amount swirls and the horizontal panels had oxidation as seen in the first pic. I used Meguiars 105 and 205 combo with a Porter Cable and Lake Country orange and white pads. I am by no means pro detailer and I'm sure a pro could get even better results but the difference is night and day.

After being washed and clayed, masked up ready to begin

After polishing and before a coat of wax. Lots of dust!

All said and done in direct sunlight.

Well done, very nice reflection. Have you tried the Microfiber DA system?

Never heard of it. I'm not very update with detailing products though. Knowing the condition of the paint on my car and reading many reviews I chose a kit based on that. This was my first time ever using a Porter Cable on a car.

Very nice work. Need to get mine done soon. Lucky for me, yellow doesn't show swirls and other defects near as bad as black.

Looks real good, can't stand the squirters, had mine repainted and already flaking again.

wow, that car actually looks wet. I plan on using the same stuff on mine. Did the 105 and 205 take out deeper blemishes? or mostly just swirls, water spots, and oxidation?

The 105/205 took care of pretty much everything except a few small heavy oxidation spots on the hood. I'll probably be able to remove those with wet sanding.

Looks real nice. Mine is black also. I want to go with an all black look as well.

Looks good man, I need to take a day out and do this before a big car show coming up.
