Default Buffed and waxed the G today

Took about 6 hours from start to finish. washed car then used Adams polishes here's what i used

Adams Swirl and haze remover
Adams Reviver polish
Adams Buttery wax
2- 6 in. random orbital buffers

car looks 100x better than before, if i had a better buffer and more products i could have spent more time on it. now time for the pics.

Nice! I feel you on how hard it is to keep Panther Black Metallic clean and looking good. I think the metallic flake in the paint kind of makes it look dirty as well.

Thanks guys! I know if I had a PC buffer and more products to use in the process it would look like new. I'm happy with how it turned out with very little product and a short amount of time. Yeah youre right pbm is rough to keep clean especially in tx. Thanks again for the compliments

It was just a cheap buffer I picked up at the store. I'll be getting a pc soon as well as some more products. It looked so good on Saturday at the car show I ended up winning two plaques. One for first place in my class and tje other was the "touch of class" award given to me by the organizer of the show. It was an awesome day. I'm taking her to another show this Saturday maybe I'll pick up another trophy
