So I spent all day sunday doing a full detail of my car and the results are AMAZING!!!!

I did the following:

1.) Complete wash and dry
2.) Meguiars Complete Clay Bar Kit
3.) Wash and dry again
4.) Meguiars Paint Cleaner
5.) Meguiars Paint Polish
6.) And last Meguiars NXT Paste Wax

I love the results from all the work and my car is as smooth as butter and can't help but drool over the results everytime I get in the car......Pics to follow.....

Good. It's very good.

:D

Did you re-buff it the second day? Makes the shine really 'pop'

And, I sometimes add a second coat of NXT after it's had time to cure awhile. The car actually looks better after an overnight cure and a second coat improves "depth."

I didn't re-buff the second day. I plan on washing it again this weekend and adding a second coat of NXT to it. I wanted to put two coats of it on when I did all of it but was too tired after working on it for so long. Thanks for the tip!

Absolutely love the colour....

doesn't it feel great when you can see yourself reflecting in the door panel?

"Dark Cherry" and "Black Cherry Mica" are two different colors. They both look great, though.
