Looking good! Now get a Porter Cable polisher and some high quality polish and wax and you will really be drooling after how good it looks.

Example here...

I ran the clay bar across my Cousins Montanna.... They live in an area where they have a lot of environmental fall out...

It actually looked like little pits of rust... When I ran the clay bar across the van( Arctic White ) You should have seen what came off.. Looked like a muddy water color... when I was done and added a couple coats of Polish this was the end result..


Like the Man said.... If you have not done the clay bar... DO IT !!!.....

After I detailed the Van, My cousin had people asking him why he bought a new one, because the one he had was only a few years old...LMAO... Had to explain to them it was the same Van...

After doing the Van and their White 95 SLE Bonneville... I'd reccomend the Clay bar... If the paint doesn't feel like glass then chances are it needs to be cleaned...

The End result will be just like your car Toasty... An awsome looking silver that just stands out

I've used clay bar for a few years now on about 4 or 5 different vehicles. It works, and it makes the finish feel baby-butt smooth. I even do my glass, because some stuff can stick to that too.

As an example to what it can do for you, I just sold my 2000 Chevy Cavalier Z24 for an amount slightly over blue book. I did the clay bar and I detailed the inside too, of course. I think it helped sell the car without a doubt, and for the great price.

My mom once took her 2000 Bonneville to get an exterior detail, and the paint still felt like it had stuff on it. Just a wash and wax, but they didn't clean the paint. Anybody can do that for 75 bucks. She got ripped off big time.
