Well the sun was out and it reached 33* so i figured that was warm enough to do a wash. ONR'd it and throw on another coat of S100. I'll try to get more shots tonight once it gets darker and my battery recharges.

Actually knowing the work of our prep dept. and the work I'm capable of, I decided to do all the prep,polishing myself. Wish I could show you the before pictures of the scratches left behind transporting the car from Germany, to MI. They did leave all the plastic wrap on the interior so the salt's been gentle so far.

That right there is 12+ hours of compounding,polishing and finishing. Don't forget the coat of glaze, and 6 coats of carnuba wax I applied as well. Just cause its an 08 doesn't mean it automatically shines out of the box.

Thanks for the comments guys. The snows starting to melt and the roads are always wet, I might get a chance tonight to get a few more pics up.

I never said it was a bad job but its not like your washing a 93 celica that's been weather beaten for 14 years or so. Nice looking ride. How's it drive? I like em though I'm not a big fan of German cars

Alright, I went out and took a few pics tonight. Need to find a better background, or more industrial area next time but these will do for now.
