1998 Ls 400 Detail With Porter Cable 7424

Quite some time ago, I began a thread in the Detailing and Car Care Forum entitled "First Time Using A Buffer [if I Order One]"

I did finally order the machine polisher in question and put it to use in May. On the first day (after washing and claying the paint with a Mothers clay bar), I went over the car with the PC three times--first using the yellow pad with Menzerna's PO106FF Ceramic Clear Coat polish, then using the white pad with Klasse All-in-One and finally using the black pad to apply an initial coat of Klasse High Gloss Sealant Glaze. Over the subsequent weeks, I followed this up [after re-washing the car of course] with another hand-applied coat of the Klasse Sealant Glaze before proceeding to layer three coats of Menzerna FMJ (Full Molecular Jacket). Those were followed by a top layer--two coats, actually--of P21S Carnauba Paste Wax.

All treatments were applied to the glass and wheels as well. The tires have been cleaned separately using a tire brush and Eimann Fabrik Tire Cleaner, followed by an application here of Eimann Fabrik Black Sapphire Tire Gel. Yeah, I like German car care products.

So here are the pictures, finally...
