    Before I get started on a massive amount of pics, I just wanted to thank you guys for pointing me in the right direction for some quality products. I was a big time over the counter wax guy, and I'll just say that this natty's is in FUCKING credible


    here's a before shot with nxt

    I started my little project thursday with removing the rear bumpers/letters, and tails to wetsand and buff the ass of the car. I used 1000, then 1500. buffed with 3m rubbing compound, topped with 3m dark colored polishing glaze.

    Once I finished that, re assembled the car, washed it with ivory dish soap to get all of the old garbage wax off, dried with chamois then began part one of natty's. I used the poorboys polish

    as you can see, the paint was massively oxidized

    friday night after work, I put on natty's blue paste. I've NEVER used something this easy before It came out beautiful. Just my luck, it was too dark out when I finished to get a decent shot and Saturday it was nothing but rain. But today, I snuck it outside and got some shots for you guys

    lemme know what you think

    thank you guys for the kind words, I'm kind of still in shock as to how amazing it looks.


    why yes, yes it does.. It's Electron Blue Metallic from a 2002 vette.. the metallic and pearl in the paint is mind boggling.

    I'm also having trouble finding a decent tire shine because of the white letter tires. everything I use slings crap on the white letters
