detailing a black sand pearl truck

couple questions

everyone with a black sand pearl truck what do you guys use to detail the exterior, what type of wax? clay bar? Polish?

I have black pro comp wheels what product may i use to clean them?

Anybody have any suggestions on a good orbital buffer?

Im just bored and feel like cleaning it up nice..taking out some light scratches and putting a shine on it

Step away from the buffer.

In my opinion there is only one way to do black and that is by hand. Everytime I see a black vehicle that someone has gone at with a buffer it looks like swirl mark city.

It sucks, it's work but in the end it's worth it if you don't want your truck looking like you scrubbed it with a scotch brite pad.

As far as wax I like Rain Dance paste.

What I did to mine a couple weeks ago.

Wash with Dawn dish soap
Mothers Clay Bar
Wash with Dawn
Meguiar's NXT 2.0 Liquid wax
Hand buff the hell out of it
Mother's Back to Black on all the bare plastic
Meguiars Tire Shine
Had some leftover Mother's Step 2 Sealer/Glaze I used on my wheels

Turned my BSP into a mirror. That was 2 weeks ago. Came out yesterday morning, two turkey's were struttin up peckin at my tailpipe all morning cause they could see themselves so well in the paint they thought it was another set of turkeys.

Hand polishing is a waste of time compared to a professional job done with rotary and/or dual action. By professional, I do not mean only someone who's paid to do it as 99% of "pros" do a crap job. I mean someone who truly knows how to level clear coat and finish it down hologram-free.

If you're new to detailing and paint correction I suggest using a Meguiar's G110 random orbiter along with some medium to light cut polishes. If you screw up your paint using a g110 you have really done something retarded and close to impossible. Learning how to finish down a professional grade product really nicely is probably the hardest part for most. They will spend 10 hours on their paint and see defects and give up. It takes a lot of time learning how to clean up paint properly, but it can be learned.

Then someone doesn't know what they are doing. To get all of the fine scratches and the sort a buffer is the only thing that will do the job properly-especially on a black vehicle. I have seen some go to the extreme and wet sand the clear and polish.

an orbital buffer wont leave swirl marks since the pad is slowly spinning/vibrating. something like a dewalt buffer can leave swirl marks. just saying. the best orbital buffer is the porter cable

dont waste ur money on 4 polishes that all provide a different step. find a local detailing supplier in ur area and buy from them or else ur going to find urself buying a bunch of crap. all you need is a clay bar, an all around polish, and wax. ill give you a website. http://www.3dproducts.com/34/ go here, the proxy is your wax and the uno is the polish. the prices are eh a bit pricey but in the long run its worth it.

I only use BTB on the trim, the front valance and mudflaps. I use Mothers Protectant (the spray) on the tires. Lasts a couple months which isn't bad.
