    I washed it, meguiar clay, meguiar stage 1 and 2 (out of 3...being the wax) cleaner and polish, to try and remove the fine scratched. I am going to get to get a buffer tho since there are a lot of scratches still on it. Then, I used Ultima Paint Guard Plus Let it sit for a while, then a 2nd layer... let it sit out and then finished it with Ultimate Paint Protection

    Basically...all winter, there was a blizzard almost once a week from Oct/Nov til March. Im surprised how dirty my car got and luckily, I had two clays since it was just that dirty.

    Really wet looking finish. :)

    Can the dealer license plate frames though, they aren't sending you a check to advertise for them, are they? ;)

    I never understood why people don't remove them.

    Sad but true.

    Ive been meaning too but I, somehow, just forgot about it...probably because of the early and late winter. I forgot about it until I started to detail it. Gonna go shopping for a new one now

    I don't even have my front plate on my NSX. Front plate looks ugly on cars, let alone a sports car. Do you have a plate bracket for your car, or does it bolt onto the bumper?
    When I did have my plate on my car, I took the bracket out, bent the plate along the top in an L shape, and bolted it to where the bracket was mounted. Looked much better without the bracket and was kinda stealthy.

    People get pulled over around here for no front plate. its bolted into the bumper. And yea, I agree... I hate having front plates on a car

    Paint looks great, Loco! It has great reflectivity and gloss. Well done!
