Pics after a nice polishing

Some pics at my goddaughter's house just after being polished up. Man black cars are a full time job.

Very nice

But you're right....its a full time job. Mine looks absolutely gorgeous immediately after washing, polishing, waxing, etc, etc. Then 20 minutes later it's dusty. blahhhhhhhhhhhh. But they sure look good when they're clean.

Arctic silver next time......

I have been using Meguir's Color X, I usually use their products but this particular one works great with a couple fresh micro fiber cloths. And of course, a California Car Duster, I use that twice a day, especially with all the pollen nowadays. That is mandatory if you dont have one already.

Looks AWESOME! Black is such a tough color but you have really done a great job.

Thanks guys, well all the hard work went down the drain, on the way to Foxwoods last night..................terrential downpours, just shook my head and kept driving.

Randall they are 18" Moda R6 or R8, I forgot which model, they make a world a difference from the stocks. Didn't want anything too shiny and blinggy.

A couple questions your honor...

Where are those tail lights from; and did you paint your calipers?

Jeph, calipers were painted using the G2 caliper paint, and have black "porshe" caliper decals on them. Tailights were bought off of Ebay, the top section is smoked and i put the silver bulbs in there so you can't see any amber.
