    Here's a pic.

    Sorry for the crappy quality. Hopefully I will have some better pics tomorrow. It got pretty late and I had to do some adjustments to the picture to get any detail to show. With the kind of paint it is, it can only be truly appreciated in the sunlight.

    Crap.. yeah sorry, I forgot to mention what I used. I was in a hurry.

    Quick clay bar (the TA barely needed it, but it had some rough spots)
    Meguiars Swirl Remover 2.0
    Vanilla Moose
    P21S
    Eagle1 20/20 on windows

    This picture wasn't even close to doing it justice... I was in awe after I just put on the swirl remover.. that and the car had absolutuly NO wax on it at all. I've been neglecting it :(

    Jeebus! :noes: The paint looks gorgeous! #9/VM/S100 is a very easy combo and you get excellent results.

    Definitely in for more pics. :)

    These pics seem to show absolutuly no depth at all. I am kinda dissapointed in how they turned out. I must say though, this is probabally one of the toughest colors to photograph.

    I wouldn't worry about any depth the pics might show. Direct sun tends to wash out depth somewhat. Besides, it really takes black paint to show depth in pictures.

    The paint looks incredibly wet. :)
