More photos in my album at: https://photobucket.com/u/atikovi/a/a41f932b-f07c-4063-b731-64f0cb0a2b74 After a thorough wash, I sprayed Meguiar's Iron Decon on a few panels at a time and used it as the clay lube with a clay mitt. Then used Meguiar's 110 to polish the paint with a DA machine. Sealed with Turtle Wax Graphene Spray Wax. The plastic trim was coated with Cerakote ceramic coating and the tires dressed with Meguiar's Hyper Dressing at 50/50.

You seem to do good work but the one thing I’ve noticed is that you take your photos from too far away. Get closer to the object you are photographing unless that’s intentional for some reason. Just trying to be helpful, no offense intended.

Hmmmm,

I’ve never heard of using an iron decon as a clay lubricant.

I’d think one would want to have the iron decon “dwell” for several minutes and then completely rinse the vehicle.

Then use a quality car wash soap or detailing spray to clay the vehicle.

But, it’s an Exploder, it’s not mine, so shortcut away!

Those crappy cop hubcaps have to go
I like 'em. Wouldn't mind something similar for my Camry and refinishing the steel wheels. IAC, it's a cop car, and they are very practical and appropriate for the application.

Just closer to eliminate the background stuff that isn’t important.
