Default Detailed for half the day

So today I decided to detail my moms 03 Cadillac Deville for her because I couldn't stand how messy the exterior was. I just did the interior 2 weeks ago so it wasn't to bad. I also started on my bonneville, need to finish it tomorrow as well as the avalanche (my dads work truck).

Here'* the before pics of the caddy: (did all the exterior without any water)










And the After pics:

And here is the terry cloth I used on the whole exterior (cept for the plastic/tires) including rims, glass and lights. Then i used a microfiber cloth to buff.

Except I missed 1 spot in the front two wheel wells because I lost the extension i needed for my tire foam :( I need to go and get a new one.

I'm 16 and this is what I do for my cash instead of working a regular part time job.
