Wow, great job again guys!

What did you use to clean the jambs? Also how necessary is it to measure the paint depth before you polish? And what is the recommended paint threshold depth where you shouldn't be polishing anymore? I do a full machine polish once a year on my car, but don't use a paint depth micrometer to measure the paint. Should I be worried/ concerned?

you can do a few things depending on how dirty the door jambs are you can wash them down while your doing a full wash or you can just detail spray or spray wax them.

You can wash, clay, polish, wax them as well for the ultimate detail on your jambs.

You should be fine not measuring your paint if your not doing it frequently and using an orbital.
