  1. I would suggest topping it with another ceramic product, maybe Ceramic Boost.
  2. The VRT should not be needed now that you have the trim coated.
  3. Good luck Justin! As the others have said it may not require 3 steps. With the advances in polishers, pads, and polishes most times you can correct + finish in one step. Sometimes a finishing polish is needed, but on most cars I do I get by with just one step.
  4. You could buy several styles of Flex cordless polishers for less than the price of the airfare, but I like your thinking for a 'road' trip!
  5. I use Wheel Cleaner, and brush with short, stiff bristles. Usually takes 2 rounds to get them looking good. If they are really bad, try Metal Polish #1 and 0000 steel wool.
  6. I don't have an SK, but I use the long throw Rupes at 4, sometimes bumping up to 5. The key to the long throw machines is to always have the pad flat on the surface.
  7. Great work on an amazing car Jimmy!
  8. Could be some paint the spilled on the road. Try 3M Adhesive remover with a plastic razor blade, but be very gentle when scrapping. You can clay it using APC, but that will eat the clay.
  9. Do you 'pre-treat' your mats? I always use a low-profile, stiff bristle brush on the mats to loosen up any sand/particles. It can also help remove light surface stains. I scrub in one direction on the mat, then scrub in the diagonal direction. I also use it on the carpets and pedals.
  10. Welcome Dave! Good info from Chris^^. For the 'baggie test' you feel a horizontal clean section of the paint (usually the hood) with your hand. Now put you hand in a plastic bag and feel the same section, and if feels gritty it should be clayed.
