    I always apply the wax by hand. :) B&S Yellow with Power Finish is awesome. No refining necessary. Would it amp up the gloss to follow up with 106 or 85rd? Sure. But its not necessary. Write up on the quad to come.

    Looks good! Lol 6 degrees would be warm for us.

    I'm not sure if there is any microhazing left on the paint with that pad/polish combo, but if so, 85rd wipes the slate clean...as good as any factory finish.

    Absolutely none on any type of paint so far. If there was, I wouldn't be suggesting the combo.

    I'm not sure that po85rd would be of any benefit in that case. (I'm truly sorry i did not mean that you would have left microhazing)
    although the menzerna charts show a gloss of 3.8 for powerfinish and a 5.0 (max) for the 2 polishes in question???

    It sounds boring, but the only way to become quick/efficient, is to do every car the same way, every time. I've been doing this for 18 years now. Lots of practice.

    is it ok to skip claying before polish if you use iron x?

    Excellent work! How exactly do you clean inside the door jams where the hinge area is? Do you use a brush for that with an apc?

    I'm also really interested in how you decontaminated the car? I thought claying was the only option.... what you did seems much easier?

    All depends on how bad your car is. After using the IRONX, run your hand over the car. A well maintained car may not need any further attention.

    I spray APC into the jamb and agitate with one on the RG brushes. If I am using the hose, I set the nozzle on the SHOWER setting and turn the tap down a little bit so it doesn't splash. If I'm using the pwasher, I don't start the pwasher. I just use the water pressure flowing through the machine. As for decontamination, I used the C Quartz Iron X. It works by dissolving the contaminants stuck to the paint. Keep in mind it doesn't work on road tar so you'll have to follow up with a tar and adhesive remover, or clay.
