I'm gonna detail the car, picked up some glaze. Does it go on before or after wax? In gonna use claybar, then swirl remover with orbiter, use the glaze with orbital, and hand wax

Yeah man for best results a DA polisher would be great! Just like danny said, glaze before the wax.

No problem glad to help but they are right orbital polishers are weak and dont provide good results if you looking to really remove swirls, some scratches, holograms, oxidation, water spotting, etc. you at least need a D/A polisher. if not try it out by hand with some lake country ccs hand pads they sell at autogeek for $10

I dont have them but since they are CCS pads and are made up of the same foam.

Oh and as for D/A not fitting in tight places lets resolve that for you ;) I just recorrected the gt yesterday but since my photobucket is still down until hopefully tomorrow i will do the write up. I used these on my gt for the first time they really helped out. I used them already on the 2011 gt/cs I did but hadnt on mine they really help out on the bumper covers, c-pillars, trunklid, door handles, taillights, etc. Plus if you ever get a rotary you can use it on that as well. It would be a good idea to get them now that way you save more cash since Phil has the sale going on and since you live close to DD you will get them quickly.

The orbital works decent. But the car came out really good. I washed it, clay barred it, used some 3M swirl mark remover, Meguires Glaze, and Mothers carnuba wax and it came out really really good.

Had a hard time getting rubber off the quarter panels though. Used a whole cane of turtle bug and tar remover, used a clybar, still has **** on it it, but got about 80% of it off.

New Mothers R3 is formulated to remove racing rubber ;)

TBM mean the two bucket method watch the videos to understand better how to wash properly.
IPA means a wipe down with rubbing alcohol cut 1:1 with distilled water to clean the surface prior to waxing or using a sealant also to remove polish residue.

Check out these videos man they are really going to help you out also check out this thread me and chris worked on you can take a look if your interested in adding a few products. I am pretty sure the rest of the product are perfectly fine the ones in question are the Meguiars M105 and M205 but I say the rest can be used without a problem.
