My paint, exterior trim, and interior were/are in primo condition when I picked up the car, which makes detailing much easier.

My car is always garaged...even at work (parking garage), so I'm just maintaining things. I use Zaino Brothers and the cleaner your canvas, the better your results. So after a good washing with Dawn, then a clay bar application, I used a light Menzerna polish with a giant green polishing pad on a Porter Cable orbital, to prep things. I then applied the Zaino (I use the Z-AIO ALL-IN-ONE, cleaner polish). I apply an extremely thin coat and let the car sit over night and rub it off. The more coats the better and deeper the shine. So I try to re-apply it after every few car washes. A tiny bit goes a L-O-N-G way and is very easy to apply and remove.

For the black trim, I use Aerospace 303. I've also used the 303 with good results on the interior, but I've recently gone to using those interior wipes from Meguires.
