    3m Sun Gun
    Metabo 12-175 with Green and Blue E2K pads
    PC with Black side of Adam's E2K pad
    Tons of towels

    1. Rinsed down the wheels
    2. Sprayed down the wheels with some P21S Wheel Cleaner

    7. Rinse car off throughly
    8. Brought the car in and proceeded to clay the car using Adam's Clay Bar and Detail Spray removed the excess detail spray
    9. Masked the car
    10. Used the Metabo with Menzerna SIP to polish out all the imperfections. (green pad) a few passes per panel at 1500 rpm (Metabo rotary)
    11. After each section was corrected I buffed off the excess polish with a MF Buffing Towel.
    12. Used Metabo with Menzerna 106 with E2k blue pad at 1500rpm to finish the paint off with a nice deep wet shine. (removed excess polish with MF Buffing towel)
    13. Applied FMJ with the PC. (the owner needed the durability as this is his daily)
    14. The test Applied Swissvax Saphir over the FMJ shortly after (as we wanted to bring out the depth..however we are not sure how long it will last and if the FMJ was properly set/cured we will see) but the depth and gloss came out nicely!
    15. Cleaned up the windows with Adam's Glass Cleaner (interior/exterior)
    16. Polished up the glass with Einszett Glas Polish applied by hand removed by hand
    17. Dressed the tires with Adam's VRT
    18. Dressed wheel wells with Adam's Undercarriage Spray
    19. Used Adam's Detail Spray to clean off the wheels.
    20. Used the Adam's Detail Spray for a final wipe down and inspected the car.

    1. Vacuumed the Interior
    2. Wiped down the door jambs with Adam's Detail Spray
    3. Cleaned Windows
    4. Interior cleaned with Einszett Cockpit on the dash and everything else that was not leather
