Sox, those pictures are amazing, the last few look like you have pictures of houses printed on your car, that is very impressive

Ask Stef what he uses,he's got OCCC and his car is mint
Well my normal detail involves this..............................

I use a Meguiars bucket with grit guard and Meguiars Gold Class wash, I have a 2nd bucket of clean water and basically dip my wash mitt (again Meguiars) in to the wash solution, wipe a panel at a time with as few a strokes as possible, turning the mitt half way through, then rinse in the clean water and move on to the next panel.

Rinse and dry the car using a silicone squeegee blade (Autoglym), you have to be very careful with these and make sure you never have the slightest bit of grit on the blade!

I then clay bar it using Meguiars clay and a fresh solution of wash solution, constantly dipping the clay in the solution and again doing a panel at a time, regularly folding the clay up and flatten out again, lot's of soapy solution is key here.

I then wash and dry it again.

Next I use Carlack 68 sealant and do the whole car and buff off.

Next step is Collinite 476s wax, again do the whole car and buff off.

I then leave it for an hour or so and finally apply a top seal of Turtle Wax Platinum Gloss Guard. Some of the 'professional' detailers amongst us may laugh at this, but it's a little unknown gem, don't knock it until you've tried it!

Job done!

I hasten to add, I only do this whole process maybe twice a year, in between it's the 2 bucket wash and dry method followed by the Gloss Guard.

Occasionally if I want a quick ultra deep shine then I'll use Zaino Grand Finale, very expensive, but very good!
