    I spent two days cleaning and polishing the car. Used Mequiar's Ultimate Compound for initial prep then the Turtle Wax Black Box system to do the rest. I still have some water spots I need to work on but I'm happy with the initial results. I don't want to use any harsher abasive than the Ultimate Compound so I may need to go a few rounds to get it all done. It also took quite a bit of the hairline scratches out but I'd like to work at it more to see if I can get them all out.

    As a side note i took 3 hours cleaning the hood of my truck with a rubbing compound then the Turtle Wax stuff. The truck had some really bad water spots and it took some muscle to get it out but it looks pretty good. I need to do a bit of polish on it but all that hard work made a hugh difference.

    Yeah...I wanted to get some shots by the lake but it's in a soccer field. So I had to drive in a dirt lot to get to it.
