Just got the wife a 2017 Corrolla LE, we decided to purchase this instead of her usual lease, so i really wanted to get it polished and sealed cause we need like 10 years outta this thing. 

 

Pretty sure the dealership detailed it by throwing a bucket of water at it, it was in bad shape or a new car.

Wiped it down with alcohol and broke out the Adam's seal. For this car a applied the sealant with a microfiber square sponge thing. My thinking was that with winter coming up i wanted to lay a thick layer of sealant down. Not sure if im wrong about this as it seems like what sticks might be the same if done with machine or by hand. 

 

Then glazed, always impressed with the Adam's glaze, goes on easy and super easy to buff off and looks awesome. 

 

Finished off with some extra seal/carabuna wax. 

 

6 hours and a sore back but i think it was worth it 

 

P.S. No idea why the pictures are upside down.

That looks like paint from the culprit and it should come off with a little work. Have to teach the wife where to park and far away so things like this don’t happen, people just don’t care.
