Black Chevy Trailblazer SS Detail >>

I just wanted to share a couple of recent details I've done. Here is a tbss that I did last wknd.

This one was in relatively good shape upon arrival. I actually really like the orange accents and overall appearance. Awesome example of a tbss imo. Garaged daily, so barely any contamination on it, but there was some. Swirls were relatively minimal, but again, were definitely visible in direct sunlight.

Job was requested as a simply wash/clay/polish/wax. Defect removal was not requested, but the M205/org removed 90% of the few that were there.

Owner hung around while I did the job. As a result, I forgot to take befores until I was almost halfway done polishing, lol. Heres how it went down:

Wash:
Citrus Wash n Gloss
Ulti-Mitt
Grit Guard

Dry:
24x36 Waffle Weave Drying Towel

Clay:
200g Gray Light Cut Clay
ONR for Clay Lube

Polish:
M205 on an Orange Pad
PoliSeal on a White pad

Wax:
CG 5050

Wheels:
Sticky Wheel Gel
Optimum Power Clean
EZ Detail Brush

Trim:
Poorboys Trim Restorer

My lonely before shot to show paint condition :banghead:


Couple of shots after M205 but before PoliSeal and 5050




AFTERS





Look at the clarity and depth in the rear hatch!




And this may be my favorite shot of it:
