Default OBP 2010 WRX paint corrected

Hey guys I figured I would post my detailed WRX. The car is washed at least once a week, and waxed frequently. However, the car had alot of swirls from taking it to the car wash a few times over the winter. Here's the product list, and some of the after shots.

Products: exterior
Meg's hyper wash
Pinnacle blue clay
Clay lube was hyper wash mixed with water in a bottle
3m blue painter's tape
Meg's ultimate polish with PC 7424 and lake country gray pad
Menzerna power lock with PC 7424 and Lake country red pad (Cured overnight)
various quick detailers
303 protectant
Wolfgang Fuzion (applied the next day)
Stoner's invisible glass

Wheels:
Hyper wash diluted with water in bottle
Daytona speedmaster brush
Mothers wheel well brush
Old lambswool wash mitt
Meg's hyper dressing
Poorboy's wheel sealent

Products: interior
Wolfgang leather cleaner and conditioner
Einszett cockpit premium
Metro Vac
Stoner's invisible glass

Overall I'm extremely happy with the results. I would say the paint is about 95% corrected. Note: The trim was not treated in the following pictures. Let me know what you think!

Looks great!! OBP sure is a pain in the butt...I had my paint pretty well corrected, then took to dealer for warranty repairs, they did a crappy wash job and put all my removed swirls back...already polished most of them out but damn it is a pain to take care of this paint!!

OBP looks so good for the 2 minutes that it stays clean after a wash

Looks great!

I corrected my OBP about 6 months ago, and even with meticulous 2-bucket washes, it's already showing really bad signs of swirls. Even if you stay away from the auto-washes, it will probably be back to its original state in under a year.

I doubt I'll try to correct mine again until I go to sell it. The soft paint is really a shame
