    Well, I finally, after so many years of owning a car figured I'd buy some really good detailing materials to see how much my beat up paint still has in it.

    I didn't get anything too special, just shit that is known to work really well. Unfortunately, this was done by hand, I may purchase a OB later.

    Still need to pick up some tire shine, and :hs: to the dents and scratches.

    Materials:

    Eagle F1 Soap
    Nattys Paste Wax
    Optimum Poli-Seal
    Foam Applicator Pads
    5 Microfibre towels


    :wavey:

    Unfortunately, I don't have any before pictures but the paint was (still is) very beat up. I've only washed it a couple of times while moving into my new place, unfortunately the last time I washed it I did more harm than good.

    Kook Rs2s? Hard to tell from just the side of the tread. Looks good aside from the scratches and such.

    Clay and swirl remover ftw

    Looks pretty deep and wet already. Proper deep polishing will only improve the looks. :)

    Actually not sure since I just put them on and haven't really looked at them much. They are Kooks but not sure on the series. So far they ride damn nice and improved braking (although the larger wheels probably helps this as well).


    I probably won't ever go through the hassel of Clay barring it only because of all of the dents :hs:

    Thanks! I'm surprised it only took me about 3 hours to pull off this hand job :mamoru:. I was expecting more.
