This belongs to my dad. It was his birthday in early June and now it is father's day, so i decided to combine them while he was on a business trip and here is his present. A freshly detailed ride to come home to.

 

My process was as followed.

 

2 Bucket strip wash - Adams shampoo with All Purpose Cleaner

Clay with Detail Spray

1 pass Fine Machine Polish

Machine Super sealant with a 18 hour cure

Brilliant Glaze

2 layers of Americana

Dressed up tires, trim, wheel wells - In & Out spray, SVRT

 

Here are the pictures!

 

Let me start with a bit of good news!

Thanks for the responses guys!

 

Looking very good! :2thumbs: I've been seeing a lot of really nice silver cars on here recently with that pop to their paint after some Adam's loving. Makes me want silver! I'm sure your Dad was very impressed and happy!

 

It definitely pops! And it hides imperfections fairly well which has its ups and downs. Silver would be second choice if it wasn't for my favoritism for black

 

The reflection is just killer!:bow:

 

I was so surprised to get this on silver! And that wet look around the fenders and quarters was insane. Adams impresses me with every use!
