Cleaned up the DII

I finally got around to trying some new things on my truck so I thought I'd whore it up a bit with some pictures. I'm not a professional detailer, just something I do in my spare time on my own stuff and for
family/friends.

In order:

Wash
Clay
Menzerna Super Intensive Polish - Orange CCS Pad w/ Porter Cable
Optimum Poli Seal - White CCS Pad w/ Porter Cable
Optimum Opti-Seal by hand w/ foam applicator

The Opti-Seal is pretty cool. Just wipe on and it dries clear.

I thought it came out pretty good. Definitely a good combo for non metallics. The Menzerna worked really well and broke down fine enough that I didn't need to step up from it. On black you may see a need to go over again w/ a finer polish like their Nano Polish.

Here are some pics before and after:

I'm back and forth between doing this to mine, or waiting until the paint is so bad I can't stand it and having it repainted in a nice sand color...

Those Porter Cable polishers and the right chemicals can make a neglected paint job look like new paint. I love mine. Best of all the polisher does all the work. For the most part you're just hanging on.

Thanks!

The Super Intensive Polish is nice on the hard Rover clear. I think anyone who tries it will be happy with it.
