Polished and buffed my IS350

Hi guys,

I polished and buffed off my '07 IS350 using swirl remover 2.0. It's about 2 months of my ownership with this car. It's at 137k miles. Didn't get a chance to polish the entire car but did the hood, top and upper side of front bumper, front fenders, left driver's door and passenger door, and left rear quarter panel and left side mirror. The majority of the right side did not get a polish cause that was done not long ago and I was tired of doing the whole car...









Cleaned the engine cover and waxed. Cleaned the top side of the engine. Cleaned side engine bay plastic cover and dressed with armor all. This was done a few weeks ago.

Tank you My wheels are in horrible shape there are curb rashes, paint of the wheel came off and there are rust. They (not sure who the dealer or the previous owner) patched up with something to cover up the rust. They look kind of better being dirty cause it gives the look of gun metal graphite wheels.

I used a Meguiar's Swirl Remover 2.0 which is a polish. It feels like a new shiny layer of sheet metal applied on to my car there is appeal of thick and deep gloss. I like this polish cause it repairs minor paint imperfections.. I would still apply carnauba yellow wax on top of this polish though for added protection.
