First - THANK YOU to all the contributors on this forum. You guys are awesome! After reading and reading, I ordered my detail stuff and finally had the chance to put it to work for the first time last night. Car is 2005 Acura TL with 36000 miles and is my daily driver Washed wheels/wheel wells with Optimum No Rinse -treated wheel wells with Armor All -treated tires with Meguire's Endurance High Gloss Washed Car with Optimum No Rinse Clay Bar'd with Clay Magic Polished with Jeff Werkstatt Prime using #5 on Porter Cable using white pad Sealed with Jeff Werkstatt Acrylic Jett using #5 on Porter Cable by hand Waxed with Optimum Car Wax using #5 using #5 on Poter Cable using grey pad Total time - 5 hours (I took my time and had to wait out a dust storm between polishing and sealing, then had to re-wash the car inside the garage. I was amazed at the difference in the paint reflectivity after polishing. The sealing and waxing really brought out the gloss in the paint. I can actually tell the paint is metallic now! I'm really impressed with the Werkstatt system and want to try out their other products, too. I've read that some people leave the polish on to dry to a haze and other people remove the polish right away. I left it on per the directions and had a heckuva time getting it off with a MF towel. That was the hardest part. The Porter Cable was easy to use because I followed everyone's advice. Here are the pics (semi cloudy day and used a polarizing filter). Feel free to critique my first effort and offer suggestions for improvement. Thx Focusing on the image reflected in the paint Same pic, but focusing on the paint itself Look Ma - It's metallic! Stay tuned, I'm detailing my new Expidition this weekend and will post before/after and half/half pictures. Justin inspired me.
