    Looks good :)

    I think you need to push your front bumper on a touch more...or is it the double radiator that's limiting it ;)

    Looks good! Seems like you were bumping up against sundown when you took the pics. It would be great to see a few sun shots when you get a chance.

    What did you think of the process/results?

    i think everything came out BEAUTIFULLY. the roof and the trunk were normally some places that ALWAYS looked horrible. i had NO trouble with any of the products.

    i recommend DACP w/ the yellow/orange pad to ANYONE. i saw no abrasiveness or marring that some indicated. the #80 is when the car really began to stand out. the souveran goes on like butter and removes quite easily. using tips gathered from Scottwax and autopia, i did A LOT of things different and they seemed to have much better results. thanks!:bigthumb:

    about 5 hours...the claying took a little while b/c the car was in DIRE need of it. it paid off beautifully. the entire car is now buttery smooth.

    I figured you'd like how #80/Souveran would look on red. #80 already finishes real wet looking, and Souveran is like adding a layer of liquid over it.

    Glad to know I could be of help. :)

    yeah, i was surprised at how much the shine really started to take once i hit it with #80. just like you said, it glides right over the DACP and i buffed it to a haze. i wiped off the excess with a microfiber.

    as a note, my little moron of a cousin opened the hose by accident and got some water on it. i've NEVER seen water bead up on a car like that.i just wiped it off with a towel and it was good again.
