Thought I show the ample cargo space in the front.


After washing, proceeded to clay entire car including windows, wheels, etc..





Car is clean and prepped for 50/50 shot of the hood. Taped over the edge of the clear bra to prevent fraying the edges while polishing.


50/50 of the hood


Notice the deeper red on the right vs the the unpolished left.


50/50 Rear Lid



50/50 Rear Quarter Panel


Exhaust Before


Exhaust After




Engine cleaned and dressed




Applied DoDo Juice Supernatural and pulled car out in the sun to wipedown to make sure I don't miss any spots




After














Love that carnauba glow




Remember the wheels before?



Here they are after clay and wax





Yes that is 220 MPH

The car looks great. Too bad you aren't in the Nurnburg area so I could hire you to detail my ride when I am at war. I have a feeling that my wife is going to let our car to to pot over the course of the next year! Which RO polisher are you using?
