Detailed the paint, I'd say she looks pretty nice...
 
Tools: Meguiars G110V2, Meguiars Foam Cutting Pad, Meguiars Foam Finishing Pad, Chinchilla Microfiber Towels, Cobra Microfiber Towels

Products: Meguiars Ultimate Compound, Meguiars Ultimate Polish, Ultima Paint Guard Plus, Ricardo Yellow Clay, Griot's Garage Speed Shine, Meguiars Ultimate Quick Detailer

Process - Paint: Clay (twice-over), Compound (2 stages and scratch reduction), Polish (1 stage), Sealant (3 stages)

Process - Glass: Clay (once-over), Compound (1 stage), Sealant (3 stages)

Time: Five-ever. Seriously, I spent well over 20 hours on it.

I'm most proud of how the windows turned out...A lot can come from a short amount of time spent detailing your windows! The part that took the longest BY FAR was the scratch reduction and swirl removal, both parts of the compound step. Also, the front bumper was not finished in any of these pictures (still needed more compound cutting), and there are a plethora of paint chips on the hood that are probably visible in some pictures. I'm going to replace the hood eventually, so I'm not worried about them. Let me know what you guys think!

So shiny my retinas are begging for mercy! Clean ride. Why no love for the tires?

Hahaha thanks! I made an effort to make sure that absolutely no swirl marks were visible, period, under any light.

It could be even deeper if I slapped a layer of carnuaba wax on top, but I only do that for shows (which I haven't been to since I finished detailing it, what a crime!)

Looks great. After having 3 black cars in a row, I can appreciate the work you put into yours.

Black cars are HELL to detail when you're OCD.
