    I've spent a lot of time making her shine, I think its going real well. The paint is almost mirror finish and it takes a whole lot for any dirt to stick.

    Yep, Its Borla "true dual". Full H pipe from headers/cats going into the one muffler at the rear of the car.


    Blackfire is wax. It works real well on darker cars, and it builds on top of itself.

    Thanks for the compliments guys.

    What kind of Meguires?

    Never heard of "Black Fire" but it looks great.

    Borla install was free, it took about 2 hours mainly because my friends and i get in arguements over who is stupid. I picked it up in a group buy I participated in direct from Borla for their first run of exhausts.


    I used Meguire's gold class for the first 2 coats, then found out about Meguires number 26, so added the next 3 of that, then the blackfire.

    I don't know if it is the new version or not, I just ordered it last week...and I honestly don't know.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    Depends on what shape the paint is in. Just because the car is brand new doesn't mean that the paint isn't already beat.

    At the very least, you need to wax a new car. If you don't, your nice new paint job is not protected and won't last as long. If the car is more than 6 months old, then you should also polish it.
