A buddy of mine from Michigan came up this past weekend to detail his car. He's also a detailer so we did this one together. We ended doing 3 steps of paint correction (compound, polish, finishing polish) because with the two of us it would not take as long compared to one.

Brought it inside and washed then clayed it.
The wheels had years of caked on brake dust, they came pretty clean though. Befores:
Clay bar before:
