Looks good, though as a detailer may I suggest polishing and claybarring the windshield too? Some refraction can be seen on it in the first picture, otherwise very good

Without diamond glass polish that glass is not cleaning up. Its not worth paying $90 for a product that i may use a few times on $80 polish jobs. They were more focused with the paint work.

A job well done!

Quick detailing questions for ya - when using a LSP and an orbital, with a finishing pad, I'm pretty much using the orbital just to apply a nice even coat correct? Faster and less work than hand applied.
