ProjectDetail: Infiniti G35C Obsidian Black

Got this G35 prepped for the RS Spring Meet. It was also due for a clean up since it hasn't been washed for a while. Last time it was washed was by a dealership and they swirled the heck out of it again. Anyways, I threw on two coats of Bilt Hamber Auto-Balm over a 12 hour period. The second coat was applied the following morning. Glass received Collinite 845. This was just a wash, clay, wax. Lots of pollen already stuck in random spots, used my brushes and to get into it during the wash stage. Sprayed the car one with my mix of Majestic Solutions Ultra-Gloss, ONR, and Zep Citrus Degreaser before washing to minimize wash marring.

Wash:
- 2 Bucket Method w/ Grit Guards
- Raceglaze Sheepskin Washmitt
- Raceglaze Brush (Cracks/Crevices)
- Meguiars Gold Class
- Dawn Dishwashing Detergent
- Zep Citrus
- Majestic Solutions Ultra Gloss
- Optimum No Rinse

Wheels/Tires:
- Zep Citrus Degreaser 3:1
- Raceglaze XL Wheel Brush
- Laitner Wheel Brush
- Swissvax Wheel Brush
- Meguiars Tire Brush
- Old Sponge cut in half
- Gloss-It Signature Tire Gloss


Last Step Protection:
- Bilt Hamber Auto Balm (2 Coats)
- Distilled Water
- Blackfire Applicator Pad
- Chemical Guys 70/30 MF Towel
- Wool Duster

Befores:




























Chose Riccardo Blue Clay with Optimum No Rinse for Clay Lube

Put it in warm water to help with the elasticity


Dusting the car done the next morning


Windows waxed with Collinite 845


Afters:












Reflection






Wheels, sorry one wheel is left out because the picture turned out terrible






And...the money shot


Thanks for looking!

LOL...yeah man it's pretty dirty right now. I was going to detail it as well but then it was supposed to rain all this week. I'll see if I have time to detail it this weekend.

i did a complete paint job on my G35 about 6 months ago the painter told me to get a detailer to wet sand it to get a flat look. i hate orange peel!
