Added a set of OEM fuel rails that I had powder coated to match the FRPP cam covers.

I use chemical guys products. Glossworks car shampoo, v36 and v38 polish, 50/50 wax and hybrid v7 detailer spray.

Heres and old picture but the result is realllly reflective and it shines nice.



I now have smoked halo headlights, its been lowered and i have a cowl hood but i like how reflective it looks in this one haha

Arsenal55, good stuff. I'll check out that combination. Also for your fog lights that are blacked out, did you use something like this http://www.americanmuscle.com/05-mus...ht-covers.html or is that different?

Also for anyone here, do you guys recommend those waxes that are meant for black colored cars? Or is that not good for our color.

Sorry I've missed!
Thanks!!
There is an importer in Germany, where everything was ordered. Because he has nothing to give, of course, everything is much more expensive than in the United States. But it was worth it....

Did you use a polisher at all or just three layers of wax? Definitely looks awesome. I'm sure it took forever but with those results, it'd be worth it.

Hi Brandon,

Fridays have washed, polished Saturdays (by hand) and two layers Meguiar’s
Gold Class Carnauba Plus. On Monday I applied one more layer. It may cost time but worth it

...nice Weekend!

What do you use to polish? I think that's the one step I'm missing for that true shine.

  4. Deep Crystal Polish http://www.meguiarsdirect.com/product_detail.do?q=4573

Thank you for that! I talked to my neighbor about using a clay bar and he said my car doesn't need it. He's a big car guy , has corvettes ,mustangs. Would it negate the other steps if I skip that? I'm thinking the paint cleaner will work just fine that you posted, as the description sounds like it does similar thing as clay bar. Not as good but well enough.
