    She's just a lowly first gen Neon daily driver. '98 with just under 90xxx miles.

    I think it turned out pretty darn well. Reflections and depth are cool, but I still have a little bit I'd like to do yet.

    A few pics:

    Thanks, guys. :wavey:

    Hey Scott...anything you would recommend specifically for a sealant up in MN/WI areas in regards to salty roads in the winters/really humid summers? EX-P, or anything else come to mind?

    Thanks again.

    With the color of your car, either EX-P or the regular version of EX would work very well.

    Front plate housing was taken off to clean underneath the thing...It was getting pretty nasty under there. :wavey:


    It's a car I can afford. What can I say. It's never failed me, and I personally love to drive it. Can't say I care what your opinion is too much. :wiggle:


    I really don't know how long it took me, as I worked on it off and on again between lunch and other breaks. Rough guestimate would be around 4 hours total, from initial wash, to removing the final S100 application. Still shining well, but, we haven't had rain here in about two weeks now.

    Thanks guys.
