Default Paint detailing

I am looking for a step by step DIY thread for restoring the finish on my Arctic Silver 993. The paint is in decent shape with a few swirls and the usual road rash on the front.
From what I understand the main steps are:
-wash and car thoroughly
-clay bar
-polish with a compound appropriate for level of scratches & swirl marks
- seal with wax or polymer sealer
Thank you in advance
Allan

Hi Allan,

I can write a long step by step for you to help out. But, there alot of variables depending on which products & machines you have access to. I would highly recommend checking out AMMO NYC on youtube. He has made a career of step by step detailing videos. I think that may give you a really good idea of what should be done and also a video of how it should be done. I have been meaning to make how to videos for my clients that prefer to buy our products and do it at home. Time just keeps getting away from me lol.

Hope that helps
