First Time Detailing

Spent about 6 hours washing, clay baring, then using the Turtle Wax Black Box kit. Things overall went pretty well, I'd say. The difference in the feel and look of the finish is night and day.

It'll be sunny tomorrow, so some better pics then perhaps. For now:

Not knowing your starting point I can only comment on the end result and it looks really good in the photos.

Tough work eh?
Your hands will be sore tomorrow but you know it was worth the effort.

Starting point was a more-than-likely neglected finish since new. I'll give you a few before shots from a few months ago. There are plenty of paint dings and nicks all over her! But oh well, it's a Jeep
