Hello, friends. Detailing is my personal hobby, and by that I mean higher end detailing - using various pads on dual action machine polishers and experimenting with various brands and what not. I'll let the pics do the talking but one of the craziest things I noticed was how freaking faded the black plastic trim was with the car being manufactured only 4 months ago.

And if someone could help me rotate my pictures like they are on my computer....that would be great. :)

Supplies Used:
* CarPro Reset soap
* CarPro Iron X Snow Soap (used after claying via a Foam Cannon to decontaminate)
* Adams Deep Wheel Cleaner
* Shine Supply All Purpose Cleaner (tires/wheel wells/plastic trim)
* Adams Clay Bar
* Adams Super VRT (tires and plastic trim conditioning)
* Rupes LHR 15 machine polisher with microfiber and foam 5.5" pads
* Shine Supply Classic Polish or Shine Supply Flat Top compound
* CarPro Eraser (oil and polish residue remover)
* Shine Supply Daddy-O sealant

I'd suggest deliberately rotating them "wrong" and then make them "right". Depending on what you're using to edit, that may fix it.

cammyfive,

Excellente! :goodjob:

Hey by the way, I fixed your pics so it seems only fair now that you work your detailing expertise magic on my 2014 Summit White RS. Square deal?

Thanks everyone for the compliments!

Also thanks Ulysses for turning my pictures right side up! I guess I kinda do owe you a full paint correction detail for that, right? Just come on up to Raleigh!

I order my detailing supplies primarily directly through the companies I listed in the products I used. They're not available at big box local stores.

Your welcome cam5, my pleasure.

Would do just that in a heartbeat but it's a 5oo mile drive from my pad to your place. OTOH, I could gas up my Whitson Flutterbug at the local airport and fly down in about two hours but my Cruze would still be back in Penna, so I think you're safe. Gotta see about moving myself back down to the Piedmont-Skyline Drive region of Virg. Did my undergraduate studies at Mr Jefferson's Country Club in Charlottesville.
