    I took some time to detail the exterior of my car this wkd.


    Normal wash w\ maxisuds.
    Washed again with Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine.
    Clay bar'd it using Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine as the lubricant.
    First coat of Glare Professional Polish applied with Orange Lake Country 5.5" pad and Griot's Garage 6" Random Oribital set to lowest speed and applied some pressure.
    Second coat of Glare applied with White pad and medium speed on the orbital.
    Third coat of Glare applied with black pad and high speed on the orbital.

    (and btw, the one picture where it looks like there is dirt on the hood - that's not dirt on the hood. that's dirt on the sheet rock on the wall that's being reflected onto the hood, LOL.)

    Very nice! Love the dripping wet look. What clay and tire shine are you using?

    Rogbmw's Tesla T decals in black or red for those center caps would look awesome...

    Looks phenomenal!

    OP, how are you feeling about the P85 rolling on 19's?

    I have a Signature P85 that I ordered with 19s even though as a Signature customer, I had paid the premium for the 21s. I'm really glad I did because I think the ride is smoother and quieter. I had a P85+ as a loaner for my first annual service, and could not believe how much smoother and quieter the ride was on my own car when I got it back. I love my 19s even though I loved the look of the 21s.

    Nicely done, I'm looking forward to having my door repainted after the vandalism so that the body shop can buff and remove swirls from the rest of the car...
