I just bought some detail brushes because I was binging detail channels, I had knowledge of detailing before (Wash, Clay, Polish, Wax, 303) but it gives me that itch to go further.

Well got after it a bit yesterday. Went around the car 3-4 time with the pressure cleaner still all kinds of stuff in the paint. Foamed it a few times then ended up washing it 3-4 times. Still an incredible amount of stuff in the paint. Two 100 gram clay bars later not too bad. Lots of fine scratches though. Wanted to use the DA on it but the backer pad is shot. Hit one fender with the high sped buffer and it took the ugly scratches out but slings cutting compound everywhere. Car needs the DA but should be OK. Wont ever let this happen again,, what a PITA.

I've now been washing my car for 6 straight days using this method, and it looks like it may continue for another 6. It can stop anytime now!
