    It was definetly a lot of work. Both of these cars are 1991 Acura NSX's. The NSX I did today was definetly major improvement.

    The Black NSX.
    Claybar
    Swirl Free Polish
    Clearkot Vanilla Moose Hand Glaze
    S100

    Everything he listed save the S100 takes off paint. The DAC/P takes off more than the Vanilla Moose. These are all very minute layers, of course, shit you would never be able to tell without looking at your towel.

    :eek3: You do damn fine work! That full shot of the NSX is amazing! It looks like you could reach your arm into the paint and never touch metal!

    SFP/VM/S100 is an amazingly wet looking combination. I've used it many times myself and it still blows me away at times with how nice it look.

    You really should post these in the click and brag forum on Autopia.

    Geez, that black car looks practically orange peel free! Amazing how well Honda paint holds up over time, isn't it? ;)

    You keep putting out quality details like that and you will be a very successful detailer.

    damn... I know everybody wants to be like Scottwax, but getting your own maroon early 90's Honda Accord detailmobile is going a little overboard, isn't it? j/k, I know that isn't your car... or is it? :rofl:

    tits job on the NSX twins... great paint, can't even tell it's 13 years old :)

    When you come up to Dallas, bring the red NSX so I can go swimming in the paint on the hood. ;)

    Yes they are. The clearcoat on the red ones have a red tinge to it. It's exclusive only for this color. Other colors have non-colored clearcoats.
