Default Definition of Clean: '05 350Z 56k DON'T TRY!

Car came in to me with TONS of swirls. It HURT to see this beautiful black sports-car in such bad shape. But I knew I was going to be the one to bring this car back from dead!

Work began with a nice cold shower at 6AM using a 1:2 ratio of Meguiar's Gold Class Shampoo and water. I rolled the car back into the garage and got a better view of all the damage.
Clay-bar'd the car first-of.








OUCH!
Then went on with a LCC Orange Pad and Menzerna Super Intensive Polish. I love this product! It really cut through a lot of the larger swirls and left the car smooth! There was a little light marring but nothing a softer polish couldn't take care of.



The car was really coming back to life! Swapped out the orange pad for a LCC White Pad and went over the car with Menzerna Nano Polish. Another great polish! Leaves the car squeaky clean! Cleans up the clear bringing back clarity and shine! I don't know how I was ever able to detail without it.

Slapped on a LCC Gray Finishing Pad and went over the car with JetSeal109. Let that sit for 20 minutes, wiped it off and waited another 15 minutes then applied a second coat. After another 20 minutes I wiped the second coat off and went about re-applying PoorBoy's Natural Look over the tires/wheel-wells.
Then with another gray finishing pad I went over the car with XMT Carnuba Finishing Glaze which I let sit for a couple minutes before wiping off.
Then went on P21S! The car was ready for a drive!

Nice work! Those before pics are a little worse than what my super black is at now. I've gotta get a PC.
