I started at 11:00 and I have only done one application I have 2 more to go and its now 1:00 and im using a portercable polisher. The fine scratch remover & oxydation remover sure worked good almost makes me wanna stop now and pull her out of the garage and go for a cruise.

Man I hate doing the front bumper. How long does it take you guys to wax/polish your car?

mine's real easy to get clean... that cuts down on a lot of time spent washing. of course, i also have all the right tools to get the job done and usually have an extra hand to help out ;) i'd say, if i do it alone, i can do it in 3-4 hrs :dunno:

It's an all day ordeal, Black sux period. Looks awesome but it's for dedicated car fans only IMO and I live on about 1/2 mile of dirt road before the pavement :-*

Damn.. that red looks good!

I did Vanilla Moose Wax Hand Glaze with a mild cutting pad (orange), Red Moose Machine Glaze with a polishing pad (white), then the regular "Carnuba Wax" with the finishing pad (black). I would of used the Moose Wax instead of the carnuba if I could get it where I buy all my detailing stuff online from he doesnt carry it...
