Default Friend detailed my car

A list of the materials used are listed below. I think the results really speak for them self considering this car has had a lot of history (dents, scratches, etc...). When I first got it the car was pretty swirled up and and pearl was pretty much hidden. I will admit though, it was a challenge considering how soft Subaru paint is known for. Check out the before and after pics below and let me know your thoughts/questions.

Used a PC 7424xp
Wash: Meguiar's Gold Class
Clay: Mother's Claybar
Polish: Menzerna Super Intensive Polish (PO83Q) on a LC white pad
Followed by a Menzerna Super Finish "Nano" (PO106FA) on a LC grey pad
Wax: Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0 on a LC blue pad

Before (finished washing)






Not the best angle to get the defect


Some close ups of the swirls that were literally on every inch of the car




Standard Before Door pic


Hood


Trunk


Random Pillar shot

This was posted on another local forum we are on. Any criticism is welcome by him.

It literally took 20+ passes to get some areas clean


And here are the after shots
Door


That smudge is touch up paint from the previous owner


Hood (the white is rock chips)


Hood again (ignore the rock chips :kegay: )


Trunk


Here is a good pic to show how much the peal was popping after I was done (this is the scoop btw, also this has to be one of my favorite pearl paints)


More pics

This. I never really cared how it looked before because of how the paint looked. Now I have to wipe every spec of dust off it haha

Thanks guys, I'll pass on the good words

^^^Huh??? (Directed to dundunskeert)

Looks damn good, black is the least fun to correct but probably one of the most rewarding to look at when complete.
