rush g37s detail

here is the story ,took me a total of 6 hours with some brakes between, long story. i start this car late, wash/clay/wash again took me 2 hours. tape the car, do a test spot,went with compound and polish pad foam on hood and sides front fairings only1 pass, owner show up and decide that he doesn`t have time to finish the detail and he needs the car, so he give me few more hours to get it back and look good. so.. i wash the front and front fairings only and let them dry and i got the orbital buffer and start put sealant on rear and sides.once done , the front was dry so i went and finish everything. got the windows done outside only , dress the tires, and polish /clean interior alittle took me another 2 hours. here are the pic of the whole rush thing. i know is not show car detail, but i am getting there step by step.
