So you think you can detail?

As some of you may know... I'm extremely careful and particular with a cars paint, exterior, and interior maintenance; as is my good friend e92LuNaTiC - so we decided my hood and trunk need a nice few step cut and polish ...two coats of sealant, a nice glaze, and of course topped the entire car off with 5050 white carnuba limited edition paste wax - and here is the result!
Let me know if you locals need a detail

Thanks Rob!

Car looks good though. Black is a tough color to keep dust off.

I sure hope you used a clay bar after the wash to remove the dirt deposits that can't be seen with the human eye.

Thanks for the heads up, but the car of course has been clayed and maintained since day 1 from delivery;
car is and was in pristine condition so no clay needed. The only thing polished were the hood and the trunk because I figured they needed some polish and work; they are aftermarket and I was not fond of the paint.
My car has been clayed / 2xsealed / glazed/ wax'd - baby's butts are jealous of my cars feel of paint
