Let's see your awesome Boxster water beading pics!

Let's see your most amazing water bead action pictures on your lovingly detailed Boxster!

...I'll start with a truly mesmerizing water beading effect I was greeted by this morning on my Boxster's just-installed hardtop... [enjoy!]

It was actually a while since it had a good polish, but the angles and curves of the beads prompted me to take the pic. Poor thing, left outside without a cover for the night...

This pic is just awesome. Not in the current vernacular of a typical teen, but as in "I am in awe and mesmerized". Looks like it was taken from a Porsche ad (you sure it wasn't? ). Kudos.

Concours rain out day last year. Iíve since switched from Ragtopp to 303 Fabric Guard for the top, now it beads nicely, too.

Lovin' it, folks! Those polysiloxane coatings are looking great! Lemming - lovin' that low-angle incident lighting, highlighting those nicely beaded water droplets.
