New to Detailing



I have recently started trying to polish up my camaro. I have only ever washed her with Adams products. She is 2yr old and I figured I would give her some TLC.


So I went outside and gave her a two bucket wash. Detailed sprayed her and dried off. Afterwards over the course of two nights clayed the whole car. Now she is as smooth as a babys a##.


The car is black and I know that is the worst color to get perfect. When I picked her up from the dealership I saw they had washed it and left swirls all over the car. There was nothing I could do about it at the time and I wasnt going to let them try to fix it. It would of only came out worse.


So to the main topic. Last night I tried to polish her up. Started with Hand SHR. Didnt touch the swirls that were in it. So I steped up to the PC with orange SHR. Did fix it alittle a little bit, but not what I hoped for. So my next step is the SSHR. Which I know with time and patience will get it where I want it. So now the question!! It is a nice cool 105 here on a good day. So the only time I can get to it is at night. I can dedicate 3 hours or so to her a night. What can I do to safely get this down over a course of several night? I.e not worry about dust and other thing running my hard work before I am done.


Also when drying her off when I saw the dreaded water spots. I clayed, Hand SHR, and 2 passes with PC SHR. And nothing!!! Didnt even touch it. There is only one small section with these spots. What can I do??


Attached is a pic of the big one. On the roof of the car by passenger side door. HELP!!

Yeah, it'd be nice to see an in focus picture of it. Do you have a camera with Macro? Something that also won't turn the paint blue in the picture.


SHR will take out pretty horrible swirls and water spots, so I have to believe that perhaps your technique needs tweaked slightly or your car is very bad off.


The hood on your car could EASILY take 3 hours to correct. Don't go into this thinking it's a wham bam looks glam ma'am job!
