Some teaser pics of detail I am doing!!

Here are some before, during and after pics of the detail I am doing for Brandon (blueblazes). Brandon advised me that the car had bad water spots on the trunk lid, roof, and hood and asked me if I could try and get them out. Well, After a little over 12 hours I was able to get off some of them and the rest were now less visible. This is just the compound stages I have done so far, on Monday I will apply 2-3 coats of sealant and the on tuesday I will apply around 3-4 coats of wax . It is really going to pop when its all done. Just with the compound stages it looks better than it did before, plus now the paint is smooth as glass. I will get some more up when I am all finished with the detail.
BEFORE:

After compounding:

Today I put 2 coats of sealant on and will need to let that cure for 12 hours or so. Tomorrow morning I am going to laying down 3 coats of wax and it should be done. Then all I need to do is wash her up and spray on some quick detailer.

It's all done now, and man was it cold this morning. Anyways, I ended up putting 2 coats of Nattys wax on, then rinsing it down, and then I spayed on some spray and gloss. I hope you end up liking it Brandon, I know my neighbors love it. BTW, if you are looking at stil selling it my next door neighbor may know of someone interested. On to the pics, I would have taken some better pics other than a driveway picture but its not my car.
