Default today's detail

Spent this morning getting the car ready for tomorrow's British Car show in Charleston. Started with a wash, followed by claybar, then Mequiar's waterspot remover, Mequiar's Ultimate Compound, and finally their Gold Class Carnuba plus wax. While there is room for improvement, I'm pleased with the mirror like shine!!

Are you doing this all by hand or using a machine (Dual Action (DA) or Rotary Polisher)?

Thanks Jim - great day and great show - some pics posted in the US Lower Atlantic Regional Section.


Here is one of mine from the side - love the reflection of the XJS sitting next to it
