Wow - tell the owner to stay away from car washes from now on! Optimum No Rinse two-bucket system is the way to go.

Wow, nice work man. I wish I had the skills needed to do a quality detail. How much does something like this usually go for?

For a car this big we charged 450 for about 14 hours of work. Full 2 stage paint correction, sealant applied + interior detail.

What's the different between Wolfgang Uber Compound and Wolfgang Total Swirl Remover? Aren't they the same product to remove swirls?

Also, do I need polisher to apply those?

Uber compound is more aggressive for the deeper scratches, can be paired with a orange or yellow cutting pad, will finish nicer on the orange but cuts better on the yellow.

These are usually meant to be used with a DA polisher, i only use it by hand when im getting behind door panels, and that takes forever when you want to use it by hand.
