Nice shots. Your paint looks great. What polish, wax, etc. are you using? I've had good results (with my last red XK coupe) using 3M glaze and P21s Carnauba but Arctic Silver isn't exactly a color that "shines".

Very nice pix, despite the industrial surroundings... or was that on purpose?

BTW, your looks like a 10. You could make it an 11 with rocker panels.

very nice indeed

I think it looks fantastic. But I am going with a 9 out of 10 until the amber comes off the tailights! Only seems fair with the front headlights in clear.

My friend used Menzerna Intense and Final Polish and P21S Wax when he detailed the car.

Yes, Randall the Industrial shots were done on purpose.

I got '03 tails planned, but my next project is SuperSprint Exhaust with Fabspeed 2nd Cat Deletes, and an EVO intake.

Yea, wheels are definitely on the list...I'm thinking about getting the stock ones painted gunmetal, or gunmetal with red time attacks. djomlas, can you photoshop one of the pics with gunmetal wheels, and one with gunmetal with red time attacks???

No no no. Skip the '03 tails and go for the 550 lights. Solid red on red would be money! I think that's what Thumper has on his. It's THE way to do a red car... though the '03s look good too. It's all better than amber. Make it hap'n cap'n.

I have considered it...but I'm afraid it might be a red OVERLOAD.

Naa, it won't be red overload until you start painting the roll bars and most inappropriately, interior bits. But it would be the last dash of red you'd be able to add. Anything after that will be an O.D.

I'll be ok with the clears too, as long as you ONLY get Porsche lights -nothing "euro" from eBay.

Your car is on the verge of being on my 986forum.com Top 5 Boxsters list. Get ready to feel very honored.

You put yourself at #1 and I get an honorable mention

I've got a great idea... let's rate the top 5 worst dancers on the board. i've got some video archive footage I could share of one forum member acting quite goofy.

Hey, start a thread to vote on the top 5 or 10 cars on here. I'm fine with it, as long as I'm in the top 5.

Actually, I worried about red overload, but once I installed the 550 lights, I quickly changed my mind.

Thumper I like your car

Can you take some more pics of the back of your car...I just can't decide. Straight on would be great. Thanks

Thanks! I really like yours too.

I don't have any straight on rear shots (not sure if that sounded right), but I've got a couple from a different angle. I'll try to shoot a straight on shot this weekend.
