    Garry Dean - Premium Detailed Black 2005 Lexus SC430

    This detail is a 2005 Black Lexus SC430. I detailed and polished this car a couple of weeks ago. I really enjoyed polishing this car. I found the paint to be medium hardness. This vehicle was riddled with swirls and holograms. There were very few, but some deeper RIDS (random isolated deep scratches) that were unsafe to remove. This detail took me 12 hours to do a 2 step polishing process on the paint, LSP, complete interior detail/protect, wheels and tires, and engine detail. I am very pleased at how wet and deep this car looks now.

    Interior
    Vacuumed with Rigid 5hp Shop Vac
    Leather fed with Poorboys Leather Stuff
    Plastic and vinyl dressed with 303 Aerospace protectant
    Carpets were already very clean after the vacuum so they were Scotch Guarded
    Interior windows cleaned with Meguiars glass cleaner concentrate
    Door jambs were cleaned with ONR/distilled water mix

    Exterior
    Washed with Dawn
    Clayed with Pinnacle Clay
    Dried with the Absorber
    Polished with Flex 3401 and LC orange pads with Menzerna PO203
    Finished with PC7424XP and LC blue pads with Optimum Finish
    Exhaust tips were polished with Optimum Metal polish and #0000 ultra fine steel wool.
    Glass was cleaned with Meguiars Glass cleaner concentrate
    LSP was Wolfgang Fuzion

    Wheels and tires
    Cleaned with Dawn
    Tires cleaned with Purple Power
    EZ Detail brush and microfiber towels
    Tires were dressed with Optimum Opti-bond tire gel with Eagle One Tire Swipes

    Engine bay
    Degreased with Purple Power
    Agiated with various brushes
    Hoses hydrated and plastic dressed with 303 Aerospace protectant

    Without further ado, here we go!

    Any reason why
    you used Dawn vs a car wash soap?
