    Nice work! Interesting combination too. I suppose you are like me and play around with different combos, eh?

    Now that I have a black car (1999 Mazda 626 ES-V6), I went over it with #80, Vanilla Moose and Carnauba Moose. Topped it with Pinnacle Souveran but it really didn't do much so I went over it with Poorboy's EX w/carnauba (twice). Looks great! Probably finish off with Poorboy's Natty Paste or Meguiars #16.

    You would be amazed at the improvements you can make with new paint.

    Nice work. Interesting combo.

    Any plans of getting the plastic sanded and painted?

    About new cars, Scott is right, such improvements can be made to give it a glow, wetlook, gloss, etc.

    VERY NICE! That's gotta be the cleanest and shiniest Element I've ever seen. Most of the Elements here are dirty or with dull paint.

    Do the prep work yourself

    go get some plastic prep cleaner at the body store wipe it down good (make sure it strips silicone)

    wet sand with 500 working your way to 1000

    wipe down with solvent again

    then put a coat of bulldog adhesion promoter on it

    It'll be ready for paint.
