JHamilton will become famous soon enough

I don't really have too much to add to this thread other than two points:

1. If you look around in your area, there are good detailers out there. These are the guys that prep cars for shows and auctions. You'll pay out the ass, but your car/truck will look brand new. As stupid as it may sound, it is actually a dream of mine to open up a detail shop. I love detailing cars.

2. When washing your car, wash the wheels first to prevent dirt from splashing back up on the paint. Change your wash water, then resume washing the car. Also wash the car from the top down, and rinse the mitt often. I rinse the mit half way down each section of the car, lets say at the trim or half way down the door, to prevent dragging debris thrown up from the tires across the paint. There is no way to prevent swirl marks, they will come back. Following the steps listed in this thread will help extend the periods between polishing however.
I'm a failure by standards I reject anyway.
