So I decided to detail my own car for the first time in about a year an half! Basically the car was shot with thousands of swirls 5+ bumper scuff marks. Interior was beyond dirty...

Anyways, Yanked off the wheels cleaned the drums and all + dyed the trim and wheel wells. The polishing was pita as Volvo paint is pretty hard. It took over 4 passes and two different coats of wax before I finally got the look I wanted. Here's some nice after shots I snapped for now. I'll upload my Slr shots as soon as my new uploader comes in, broke the teeth on my old one.

I didn't snap too many pix of my actual detail but here are some, all taped up or wet sanded.

Holy saturation batman!!!

Hard to tell how it came out due to the color/saturation tweaks you did to the photos and no direct sunlight / sun burst photos but, I am sure it looks much better after 26 hours

Yea, I saturated the hell out the first set, I guess it comes out different on the iphone then on the pc. The second set is completely un edited.
