    Hell yeah! You are going to love how easy PwC and Nattys are to use. Spray & Gloss is a pretty nice QD, not quite as deep as Quikshine but still a great shine and super slick.

    Waiting on the pics now. [​IMG]

    Pics will likely come Monday.

    Plan on probably working until it's dark on Sunday night.

    I don't like to get up early on the weekends and I have to for work tomorrow, so Sunday I have to sleep in. :sleep:

    So out of curiosity how much did you spend and where did you get it all?

    About $90-$100.

    The Poorboy's stuff plus the 3 green towels and 2 of the applicators came in a package from Specialty Motoring. I think it was around $45.

    The rest of the stuff came from Autopia and I think was about $45 as well.

    Alright, here's the pics post-polish. Crappy quality because lighting sucks in my garage and my camera blows. It does look pretty nice though, can't wait to wax it and finish the job. Hopefully it's still light so I can pull it out for some better pics.

    Alright, here's the final product. The pics don't quite show it cuz it's not very bright outside, but it looks real nice. I found a lot of imperfections in my paint, or scratches/marks, but they're only noticeable from up close so I'm not bothered by them too much. Save a new paint job, there's not much I can do about them. Anyway, I like the combo I used, it works real nice, and real easy to apply and not messy.

    Overall, I'm very pleased with the results. Didn't get out some of the marks I wanted to, but I'm ok with that. I think it turned out pretty good.

    It was painstaking work and I'm tired as hell. For that I admire you Scott, I don't know how you do it day after day, but you deserve every penny you earn. :bowdown:

    Thanks for the suggestion on white eShine. :bigthumb:

    Feel free to comment. :bigthumb:

    I'd really like to see the pics, but on dial-up (and I actually have a really good connection for once), it ain't going to happen. :(

    Looks good slimmy. Did you do anything special to the headlights / windshield?

    Look great.

    In due time. It's hard to take pics of it in the sun, I'd have to drive somewhere, my entire neighborhood is shaded.
