Exterior only. Decent number of swirls noticeable in the black surfaces but most of them came out with minimal polishing. Many surfaces were obviously repainted on this car: if you don't end up noticing the black. Prep by these shops wasn't perfect and I didn't know how thick the new clear was, so I was not going to keep polishing surfaces with a couple scratches left in them.

Pictures came out pretty well. It was cloudy all day so I had to get creative with angles to capture the swirls.

Pictures below list.

These 50/50's show the polish wasn't perfect, but brought a lot of depth of color back.

LSP - last step product: sealant or wax. P21S paint cleanser is not an LSP, it's a prep for LSP.

You could have gone more abrasive than 106FA. 203 finishes about the same, and cuts more.

Also make sure you get the inside of those wheels! Besides that, good work.

He just bought those wheels too. I have the same ones and they get dirty so fast.

Last step product to me sounds pretty broad, so I'll stick with what I have.

I could have used 203 if I had it. I also wasn't going to go too aggressive on the black paint that had horrible prep. I had already done 2-3 passes in spots and I wasn't going to risk any more.

And I did get inside the wheels; I don't know what you're seeing. That lighter spot is a reflection of the brake rotor.
