Natty's Blue over Souveran - Scott, as usual, was right.

    Had the chance to give the Jeep some lovin', and I remembered Scott's recommendation of Natty's B over my usual Souveran final topper. I couldn't see how the finish could really look any more wet and slick than it already did after the Souv, but once again Scott was right. Fucking insane. :big grin:

    It should be noted that this rig gets very little paint care during the year, and the paint was in aweful condition when we first bought it - scuffs, scratches, swirls and haze...it's a battle every time I try to restore it. :bigthumb:

    Poorboy's SSR 2.5 - orange light cut pad - PC set to 6
    Poorboy's SSR 1 - white polishing pad - PC set to 5
    Poorboy's EX-P hand applied/removed
    Pinnacle Souveran hand applied/removed
    Poorboy's Natty's Blue paste wax hand applied/removed

    All ready for the rest of Connecticut's shitty weather.

    edit - pics are down due to douchey ISP

    :mamoru: I like to alternate between Natty's and Souveran. They compliment each other nicely.

    Your Jeep is looking great! I do hope you got the tires and fenderwells after you took the pics though. ;)

    Thanks to Scott's recommendations I plan on trying this combo on my black 350Z this spring. Just picked up some Nattys Blue :)

    You know it! I just had to get a pic of the finish while there was still some available sun. :bigthumb:

    Looks good, I agree.. I would dress the tires and then get the fenderwells.

    I'm in the same boat here. I polished and waxed a couple black G35 coupes today and with the second one, I had to take the pics after using a test version of Vanilla Moose but before waxing with Carnauba Moose. Still looked really, really good. :)

    I bet. People can bitch all they like about the upkeep necessary for black cars, but when they are clean there really is no better color.

    It was 55 degrees here in CT today, which is ridiculously mild for January in this area. I capitalized on it by adding two light coats of Natty's B to the M3. :big grin:

    The M3 looks great!

    The problem with black is it only looks good for 10 minutes then the dust starts accumulating. :sad2:
