Cool Some outdoor shots after FOUR COATS of polish

After my recent detailing post, I had a lot of requests for some outdoor shots in some natural lighting. OP Delivers!

3 Coats of Zaino Z5 and 1 Coat of Zaino Z2 - Never done by hand
Applied using a Porter Cable 7424XP coupled with Lake Country Black and Blue CCS Pads.

Shots were taken using Sony NEX-5R with a kit lens and a Canon 50mm Lens

Where does the reflection end and the car start? All I see are two red racing stripes floating on the street.

Great job. My first car was a black 1993 Ranger and I hated cleaning it. Then again I didn't know anything about detailing back then!

Thanks! It takes time and patience with a black ride, you know all about this.
Problem is, mine is daily driven too

Very nice job. I just have my silly little drill-driven Meguiar's DA. Mine is Race Red, so dirt hates my paint as well.

I saw you had the caps on your taillights though, I used to have them till I found these, I personally prefer them, you might check them out:

Until the day I can properly retrofit 2013 tailights to my 2011 that is lol

The Meguiar's DA is, I think, more powerful than the Porter Cable actually.
Race red is AMAZING. I worked on a Race Red 5.0 just yesterday, only one I'd consider aside from black.

I'm bored of my tailight covers already, will just leave them on for the time being.

I like it, but the drill I currently have is a little bulky and unweidly to use, plus I can't set it to a specific RPM so revving it too high scares me with the compound pad on haha.

I actually considered Grabber Blue, but I'm glad I went with the RR.

Joey, i too had the Meguiars DA drill polisher. Was decent but wasn't getting the results i wanted.

A few weeks ago i purchased a Griots Garage 6" DA from AutoGeek. I can't tell you how impressed i am. All my swirls/scratches are gone and the paint looks factory fresh. I paid $130 for it and its worth every penny. Much more quicker than the drill, too.

Just thought I'd offer some personal experience. Any questions feel free to PM.

Polishing doesn't leave a coating. You aren't putting coats of anything on when you polish, you are removing the clear coat with a very fine abrasive to make it shiny again. After a lot of polishes you'd have no clear coat left.

Wow, old thread!
Thanks for the kind words gents

@ Lizer
The vehicle was polished/compounded with Meguiar's M105/M205
Then was glazed/sealed with Zaino.

Also to be short, you are wrong.
There are several polishes out there with cutting ability and finishing ability.

To name a few

Meguiar's D151 for example.
Meguiar M205
Zaino ZPC
SEVERAL Menzerna products
Optimum Polishes
Mother's Polishes

Have you measured clearcoat? And how much mils of clearcoat something like Meg's M105/M205 will take out?
Trust me, I take my hobby very seriously.
