Very nice...

Spring hits in June up there eh? Reminds me of my hometown in upstate NY.

Here's what I did this past Saturday.... pay no attention to the Challenger parked next to me... someone has to park near him to make his car look good so it might as well be me.

Of course Spring hits a bit sooner down here... like February. Been 90+ all week and so humid. But hey, it's better than rain. The week leading up to Memorial Day in rained 9 consecutive days nearly non-stop when that storm system was parked over the Gulf.

Hey their Guys,

Wow, that is some pretty serious Detailing, and jobs done well on both Rides!

You know of course I couldn't stand to not go to it and break out my old rotary buffer, and do it to it after seeing the fine job you guys did, so here is a quickie pic of mine just after a good once over on the paint. Was kinda hoping on getting a couple better shots, but will try again another day. Here is my rolling tray of cosmetic goodies from my Buddies over at Meguiar's, as well as my Official limited Meguiar's Brushes, and my "Orange" 200o RPM Makita High Speed Rotary with my old school Lambs wool blend Buffing Pad, followed by a fair shot of my baby just after I got all done.

At least she is back to swirl free one again. This time I used the Fine Cut Compound, Swirl Remover, Show Car Glaze, and followed up with the Gold Class Paste Wax. Then I got out my Jeweler's Rouge and buffed out all the chrome including the wheels at 1000 RPM on another lower RPM Rotary that I just keep around for such purposes, before I finished off with a bit of the Meguiar's Hot Shine Tire Gel to dress off the tires nicely. At least she is back to somewhat presentable once again!

Again, good job you guys! Keep it up and your gonna pass me up in no time!

Go easy, and I'll catch yall later.
