2 purpose thread!

just got back to the car after a long winter, decided to try my hand at a wash polish wax etc-what do you guys think/any advice?

and 2: there is a lot of chipping/random nicks at the bottom of my front bumper-this is a result of 9 years of lowered use, but i was wondering if anyone has any idea if theres some sort of method of protection-you can see the chipping in the front facing pics
also, the headlight casings i have are the originals-any way to clean those marks off (visible when the angel eyes are on)? ive searched the forums and tried everything from regular soap to oil, to no avail. bleh. just wrapped the trims and i really want them nice and clean

thanks for the help guys. these images arent exactly angled great, i was just having a good time with the car haha if anything ill take some more tomorrow


shitty flash pic

one more

thanks for the help folks!

EDIT: huh. so the pics didn't work. well

Wow, car looks great!

Have you tried these yet? http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=831201, this one for videos http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=830690, i was just browsing because i needed to detail my car as well so i saw these threads


and what steps did you do in your process (ie. clay, wax, polish, sealant, etc)?

Btw i got your pics working, but they were too big to be viewed on this thread/site, need to resize them then use the IMG,/IMG on the second batch of links you posted
