I spent 5 hours Saturday evening washing, buffing, claybar-ing, and waxing my car.

Here's some artsy-fartsy shots of what it came out like.

Keep in mind this is the $600 wonder. :wiggle:

I thought about it, but i'm kindof weird about using that stuff on tires like mine. I don't know if it actually does anything negative, but i'd rather not try. :)

But thanks!

I personally dont like tire shine, makes it look almost fake. (the wheel)

Nice, except you couldnt just get a full shot of the car could you? :hehe:

Not yet... got a couple more things i need to do soon before i'm happy with it. I've got to wait for the paint to cure on the bumper before i buff it to match, and i'm finishing up my sideskirt brackets shortly.

I need a new hood, too. :(

Tip.
Try to frame the shot so that you dont cut part of the car off.
Point the camera up more. Ask yourself, whats better to look at, the sky, or the ground?

Thanks. I have some others that aren't so annoying back at home, i'll have to host them.

I wasn't really paying attention when i was taking them, and i hate this camera. :(

Plus, this covers up the issues with the car. :hehe:

It's got some swirls, i haven't buffed a car in years, and i usually used a random orbit, rather than the high speed i used this time. Oh well, it'll get painted this winter anyways.

Thanks Jason. :)
