I'm going to be brutally honest here, and hopefully after all the all the "flaming", someone will have some empathy, and help a brotha out.
So here we go, I'm afraid of detailing my car myself
; there, I've said it. I own an '05 NBP TL, and am kinda ashamed of how I've treated "my baby". If she were truly a child, DCFS would have taken her long ago due to her unhygienical appearance. She deserves to be "bathed" more often, and I want to make amends.
Now here's the thing. I've looked at all four parts of the infamous 2006 Acura TL in Nighthawk Black Pearl

I detailed the car myself, how often is that necessary to do, and what will be necessary to do in between "detailing" in order to keep that "liquid" look/shine? How should I wash, as to not destroy the look. Would I have to re-clay/polish everytime I wash?
Thanks in advance for your help.
