911fanatic vs Gti

Client brought this car i for a single stage polish as it had accumulated some light marring from weekly washes. Sorry for the lack of before pics but it was pouring rain out when I washed it. Let me say that the car was extremely clean and even the jambs only needed a light brushing to clean them.

Jambs etc cleaned with citrus cleaner I'm testing.
Washed with Bilt Hamber Auto Wash. Great soap when you consider it foams like crazy and you only use one TABLESPOON per 4-5 gallons.
Clayed with some new clay we are testing
Terence polished the drivers side with Uber orange and Power Finish on his Makita (until he broke it ) while I used the Uber yellow on my trusty PC7424. The Uber green got rid of all the washing issues, but some deeper stuff remained so we opted to get out what we could without resorting to heavy abrasives.
To amp up the gloss, I went around the car with Uber blue and 106FF.
We really wanted to impress the owner as the car had come in looking really good already so we decided on Gloss it for LSP duties. Gloss it Activator was applied first to lay some good ground work for the Gloss Finish to adhere to. Two coats of Gloss Finish were applied via PC and Uber black I believe at speed 3. After letting the Gloss Finish cure overnight, I applied a coat of Gloss it Concorso the next morning.

Total time - 21 hours

Enjoy the final pics.

Wheels were cleaned with Gloss it Wheel Cleaner at 3:1. Tires were dressed with Optimum ire Shine while the wheels got Blackfire All Metal Sealant.

Grill and mesh lowers were dressed with Autoglym Silicone Spray.
