Glass and Paint were clayed

Paint measured
http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f149/pyiu/1st%20gen%20iphone%208gb/dbuddaudirs4/IMG_1087.jpg

The paint was a bit dull and we needed to bring the gloss back up and the metallic flakes to pop! We were able to achieve this by using Menzerna Super Intensive Polish followed by Menzerna PO85RD. I have found that einszett Glanz Wax brings out the metallic flake on a properly prepped car.

Take a look at some of the 50/50 shots

OK I have a question you detail guys on here are really making my techniques dated.

First why clay the glass. Second why is it necessary to use that Iron stuff. Lastly, you dont have to give me an exact and excuse me for asking but what does a detail job like this cost. The only reason I've never taken my cars anywhere is because its hard to find someone in Milwaukee.

But seriously I read a write up another person did on a Ferrari to remove the Orange people that took a total of 30 hours to accomplish the finish that was beautiful. I'm just wondering what does something like cost. Also where do I learn most of these new detailing techniques?

Thanks In Advance

thanks for the reply.

claying the glass is the same reason why you would clay your paint, what's on the paint is on the glass.

iron x will remove certain contaminants on paint better than clay.

as for a 30 hour job I would say that may bill out at $2000-3500 depending on the detailer.
