    I just bought a Flint Mica scion tC, it's a dark gray color with a good bit of metallic flake in it, what would make the car really shine and bring out the real sparkle in the paint? Im a noob at detailing :o

    What kind of durability is acceptable to you? What type of look do you prefer? Deep and wet or shiny and reflective?

    What do you look for in the best?

    something with a great shine, and a slight wet look...I'd also like something that will bring out the metallic flecks more

    I think that poorboys EXP and NXT gave my car's metallic paint a great sparkle. it doesnt even look like the same color anymore next to a stock wrx.

    one of the greatest compliments I got on this car and my old celica was "you got a paintjob?!?!?"

    It's amazing how some good products can make it look like a completely different color.

    I'd use Klasse AIO as a base and go with Poorboy's EX-P or 4* UPP or the Jeff's Werkstatt Prime (like AIO) and Acrylic Jett. Both with look very wet and reflective.
