Beautiful car, HighSpeed. I'd hump it.

Thanks! :D


Did you detail that freshly painted bumper?

Yep, I called the shop, and they said that they "baked" the bumper after painting. So I asked them if I could wax, and polish it with a PC and they said that I could do anything to it.

Used a professional PC from my buddy's detailing center. Instead of 1 6" pad, it's two 4.5" pads.

Very...very well done. Like anyone that has ever used a PC...you stood back after the last polish...right before you put on the wax and said....HOLY CRAP THAT LOOKS SWEEEET!

you've done a beautiful job.

Are you hooked yet?

I suggest that if your going to do this process that you should invest in a Porter Cable. It took me about 5-6 hours with a professional buffer. I washed the car with Meguiars NXT Generation Car Wash soap. Then I used Meguiars Quik Clay Detailing System. Then I used Meguiars Deep Crystal System Paint Cleaner. Polished with Deep Crystal System Polish. Waxed with NXT Generation Tech Wax. Than I spray detailed it with NXT Generation Speed Detailer. Than I kept it in my parent garage and the next day I spay detailed the whole car again outside to get all the left behind wax I might have missed.

Those pictures were taken the same day in the evening wasn't the best day outside. The camera that was used was only a 2 megapixel so those pictuers don't do all the works justice, nor the good looks of the car. It's worth it.

Here's some new pics.

That is exactly how I want my steel grey to look like. I can't think of one thing you could do to improve its looks.

Just for looks I have planned some PIAA JDM Yellow fog lights, with body color matched housing, eyes lids, blacked out headlights, 6000K HIDs, with LED parking lights, PIAA matched high beam, and low beam bulbs. Maybe a carbon fiber hood. That's about all I can think of right now. It'll be nice.
