    :eek: nice car! i don't think i've ever seen fikse wheels on a vette. dude's got some money in that car. great job on the detail too.

    some products that I've used on GM black that really knock the swirls down is the Pinnacle twins. http://www.autogeek.net/pitwspof.html The swirl remover is aggressive enough to knock down almost anything on the paint. It breaks down fairly quickly and leaves a near LSP ready finish. hitting the paint with the polish really brings out the luster and adds a good bit of depth. I did a black ram with PT found here: http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=3448823


    again, great work on the car!

    With Meguiars, you really have to start with #83 to really remove swirls on a Corvette. Looks 100x better though, especially how much blacker it looks. :)

    Looks sweet. Great work. Looks like there was some pretty bad marring.

    yeah, I was gonna say #9 seemed really light to be starting with, especially on heavily swirled black...

    but it does look good! I bet the owner was estatic!

    I hate doing black outside. It's such a pain in the ass.

    Natty blue on black is :bowdown:
