    Are you looking for information from start to finish or just for the machine polishing? What kind of car polishing have you done in the past?

    Want to keep it having a showroom shine all year round
    Have polished previous cars by hand

    The process that you should look to be following is:

    Pre-wash using snow foam
    Rinse
    Wash using the 2 bucket method, decent shampoo, lambswool wash mitt
    Rinse
    Decontaminate including claying
    Wash again using 2 bucket wash to remove residue
    Rinse
    Dry
    Polish
    Seal
    Wax

    Do you have a budget that I could work with?
