    I agree with you on the rotary, it is the quickest but has the steepest learning curve. I always recommend someone picks up a junkyard panel to practice on. You do have machines like the Rupes and Flex which offer excellent correction without as much danger. My go to now is Makita for heavy correction followed by the Rupes to remove holgraming or compounding marring. Hell, rupes even has the 1 step compounding/finishing product available now.

    For any beginner, a DA (dual action) such as Porter Cable, Griots Garage or Meguiar's are excellent option. Orange and white lake country polishing pads 2-3 of each and something like Meguiars M105 and M205 are a good starting point. There are plenty of guides that can walk you through it.

    If I recall the original GD method was basically one pre soak, one bucket and a bunch of microfiber? I've used it and it works, I think the main key in this is that the surface is well lubricated. If the surface is super soapy its going to help prevent any marring from rubbing dirt and grime around on the paint.

    I haven't heard specifically of GD method or infinite use detail juice. But it seems like Optimum No Rinse...which I have used before. I've only done it in the winter when it was too cold out to wash and could only do a hose-less wash in the garage. I also only did it on my car that was relatively clean...not caked with rd salt. My method is two buckets with grit guards. Pre soaked each panel with no rinse solution in a garden sprayer. Washed down panel with soaked microfiber wash mitt and dry with MF waffle weave towel. You just have to make sure you rinse your mitt frequently and you should be fine as far as minimizing swirl marks. Nothing's safer than actually using a hose to prevent swirl marks. But if you are limited on water. This method isn't bad....as long as you don't have caked on dirt.

    Haven't read much of this thread, can't imagine liking washing a car let alone waxing it. Bought a new car in October and it got washed when the dealer serviced it. I believe in a good protective coat of dirt, did have a Vette once that got washed a few tomes. Rather be playing golf!

    As a Jeep owner, this does not appeal to me. I wash my Jeep with mud, tree limb scratches and rock rash... She doesn't like clean water.

    Just a Wrangler Sport 2 door. Been adding in to it a bit. Just bought a Dana 44 for the front that I'll be installing once I get down to Tennessee. After I get that, it's 37's and a RIPP Supercharger going in soon thereafter!

    They're awesome. Best part is that they don't require detailing!

    It's ok, buddy.

    I wish I never would have gotten rid of my Wrangler a few years back. Loved it, but with all the interstate travelling I was doing at that time, it didnt make sense.
