I've tried just about every brand that I could pick up locally and that's the one that I had consistently good results with across the entire product line. I had good results with the other brands for the most part but seemed like every other brand had at least one product I didn't personally like although people I gave it to loved it so maybe I'm just picky haha

I should be able to hand polish without a buffing pad right? It will just take a little longer...

Either a pad or microfiber cloth but no you don't need an electric buffer. With as small as the trim is I wouldn't even use mine on it anyways. Besides doing it by hand does take longer but I've always got better results anyways by hand

Not the best picture in the world but this was all by hand and had a perfect mirror reflection everywhere. Just have to be patient, I spent probably 8 hours detailing my car that day haha

That's the easy part, should be able to get the hang of driving it in no time. It will take a lot of practice to get good though, all the more reason you should hold off on performance mods for a while though

I had zero instruction before my dad dropped me off on a steep hill in the middle of nowhere with no cell phone in his 92 gmc 1500.. Had a friend pick him up out there and told me he'd see me when I made it home, learned pretty quick haha

I would have to agree, probably the fastest way I could have possibly learned even if I was quite upset with him at the time haha he always made me learn stuff with little to no help
