First Detail For Someone


Recommended Posts

My friend owns a black Lexus and I noticed how bad his swirls were. I asked him if he didn't mind if I tried to correct his paint. Here is my first detail using a Portal Cable and the normal suite if Adams products. I would love feedback on my results. I spent about 8 hours on the detail, is that a lot or normal? My hand is killing me :) I found it very difficult to get it 100% correct. My friend loves the results so that makes me happy.

I agree with these guys, 8 hours is about right especially for a vehicle that looks like it has had the finish as abused as this one. You had a great turn around, the car looks great. You may have had better luck removing more of the swirls if you had some Severe Swirl & Haze Remover to apply. However, I'm surprised your hand is bothering you. You may have been applying more pressure then necessary. I have arthritis and normally don't have any pain after detailing unless I'm doing a bunch of steps by hand. I would suggest using a bit less pressure when applying and removing. All Adam's products work fine using just little pressure. Anyway, good job for your first time, you did great!

Wow thanks for all the compliments members! I didn't think I would be able to squeeze in this much work in one weekend, but a little bit each day from Friday-Sunday was enough.


There were times when if felt like I would NEVER get done. All I kept thinking was "OMG I have so much more car to do. OMG I'm only on pass 1 of 3." :)
