TIME SPENT : 2 DAYS

An Enhancement Detail includes a single-stage machine polish. This involves the removal of light surface defects (oxidisation/swirls/holograms) adding gloss and depth to the vehicle’s final finish.

To ensure 100% coverage, a second layer of Nano sealant was applied after 6 hours curing time.

Hi Lee,

For this car I used a 3M Rotary with a finishing pad and Perfect-It 3 Ultrafina.
For the small intricate areas I had a Flex Polisher with a 4" spot pad.
The car was given two layers of Wolf's Chemicals Hard Body Sealant and a final coat of CSP Carnuba Wax for some added gloss and protection.
If you have never used a Rotary before then I'd suggest you get a spare panel from a scrapyard.
A dual action polisher is a safe bet for beginners but that's not to say that a beginner cannot use a Rotary, you just need to keep it moving and be aware of the heat that it generates.
Look up "Junkman Detailing" on YouTube. Fantastic range of videos, right down to earth guy, exactly what you need to know ;-)
