So recently, I decided to polish my 2006 IS250 again after two years since the last time I did. The past year has been a busy time for me, and to be honest I've been washing it once every few months, driving out everywhere to snowboard/play/etc... Basically it's been taking a beating. I also street park everywhere now and since I work in the Bronx now a valet parks my car in the most cramped garage so I get lots of fresh dings and nicks Also had a few panels repainted rather shabbily (oh well).
I decided that I would try to restore my paint a little bit.
Porter Cable, red pad, Meguiar's Dual Action cleaner & polish, Sonus clay bar, dawn dishwasher detergent, lexus touch up paint, etc..
Without further adieu...
I polished the right half of my bumper in this picture. Look at the difference.

Not bad for an 06 car, I'd say!
Thanks for looking!

I used four star paint protection. You're probably right - I have a set of very strong polishes. However, I did not want to risk damaging the clearcoat or even worse the paint, so I went a rather conservative step.
It reminds me when i had my obsidian is250...I would wash it every week and fully detail it 2 times a year. When this color is in its prime it truly! Looks amazing! In my opinion. But it's a challenge to keep it that way. I also would take the conservative route in order not ruin the clear coat. Awesome job!
