Detail day: 2001 Porsche Boxster

I know it's not a camaro but i thought i would share,

I am 17 and do lawn mowing and detailing in my neighborhood. Started detailing cars when i was 13. Today i got to detail and drive a dirty Porsche Boxster manual trans,2nd time driving a manual

I started with the wheels,tires,wheel wells and exhaust using Adams All Purpose Cleaner i cleaned everything with a brush.

Next i hosed down the car and foamed it with Adams wash.

Dried the car down with a Adams drying towel.

Then started the claying process using a mothers clay bar with adams detailer. The paint was not bad at all put it made the paint alot smoother, i did the glass too.

Then cleaned the rims with Adams wheel cleaner and Dressed them with VRT.

Moved onto wax and used Adams Carnauba wax.

Then started with the interior and cleaned it using Adams interior cleaner and leather conditioner.

I think the car looks great! Thanks for looking

That's not bad. Pretty cool your neighbors let you do the detailing.
My neighbors are a bunch of stuck up idiots that rather pay some mobile guy to scratch their car.
Including the guy down the street that has a Lamborghini.
