Lightbulb My first Orbital polisher ...... Flex XC3401

After having mixed results from hiring "so-called" professional detailers in my area over the last few years, I decided to purchase the equipment and products myself and learn how to do it.

I am glad I decided to do this!
The initial price was a little steep, but I bought the stuff that the pros use.

Flex XC3401 orbital polisher
CCS Orange light cutting pad
CCS White polishing pad
CCS Blue finessing pad
Menzurna SI1500 super intensive polish
Menzurna SF4000 super finish
Menzurna Power Lock sealant
Pinnacle Souveran Paste wax

I did a bunch of reasearch on and found the videos on Youtube from Mike Phillips to be very educational.

I must say that this is not a quick job.
Each step is required to correct minor scratches and blemishes in the paint.

I won't go into every detail, but after the SI1500, the car looked better than it ever did before!
The SF4000 provided a finer finish and clarity.
The Power lock seals all my hard work from the elements.
The Souveran wax gives the car a "3 dimensional look" just as stated on the product documentation.

I really like these products and the Flex 3401.

Here's a few pics captured during the process.
Camera actually was picking up small traces of dust from my microfiber towels!

I haven't finished the shelby yet, but hope to by tomorrow night. Just have to apply the wax to it and it will be ready.
