Default Its been a while. Spent 3.5hrs used new products!!

I purchased a detail kit from a car show I attended this weekend. Its called Adam'*. They have quite the line up of products, which some came in my kit.
Started off with the Allpurpose cleaner on the wheels, wheel wells and tires. Then the inital wash and dry, dried with an utterly amazing "waffle" towell, that its just..amazing, this thing dries FAST.
Secondly using there instant detailer with a there clay bar, I clayed the car.
Without removing the residue as they instruct, I used there swirl remover, then there Revive Polish. The next product blew my mind again, its called "buttery wax" Holy crap, easy to put on and easy to take off, which is important as I was tired as hell by this stage.

Here is some before and after pictures, now, there isnt many, as i didnt use the flash for most of the pics, stupid me, they came out black and white..oh well..daylight pics to come..

Engine bay later this week.

Trany cooler? That puppy is over 15 years old, collectively has over 200,000 kms on it, has been in a serious accident and once belonged to my red SSEi.
It works though. ugly as ****

Im pretty impressed with the results. I am going to try to get day time pics tomorrow for yas.

I had to do a double take. Looks almost as clean as the Bullet.

Looks Great

Now let'* see if you can keep it that clean until July.
