Default Bonny after wash and first wax

Here are some pictures of the Bonny, after a wash and her first ever wax. I always avoided the waxing, but did some research in the forum'* detail section. Makes the Bonny look so much better, for a well used 12 year old car. Still can't figure out how to use the 10" orbital buffer I bought at Harbor freight, I must be doing something way wrong.

Mike,

Leave the light on for me- on my way.

Thanks, it is a lot of work, and I am sure I am not too good at it. I plan on learning more about the waxing stuff. It took mey two hours, but after reading it takes Dan eight hours to wax a car, I am sure I did a below average job......

2 hours seems about right. I think what Dan is doing is, wash, polish, then wax. That is time consuming.

Waxing is easy. Doing it all takes time. You need to wash good, clay bar, then polish, then glaze, then wax, and followed with buff. Using the right lotions makes a big difference.
