I think driverjohn'* might come pretty close to matching or beating those. They're pretty impressive. Yours are too. Very good if you haven't done any polishing after clear coat.

Make sure you get some good HARD wax like liquid glass on them to protect them.

EK98'* are about 80% of that gloss, but only because we had poor temperatures for tinting/clearcoating. With a little buffing in the spring, we'll have them there.

Take your time. Get some 1500 grit, and try to polish them even more.

What clear are you using? As far as rattle-cans go, I've found Duplicolor'* clear gloss to be the best, but found it flows and levels better colder than the reccomended temps.

LOL, I love starting a trend

Great job! Props to you! Mine would be quite comparable. Get some pics up once you install them!

Peter, you must be using a good quality spray gun. The pics quality that I can see is not good enough to discern the fine details but it looks very reflective.

Oh darn, my compressor only produces 7.8 scfm at 40 psi and I see that gun needs 9 to 11 scfm. :(
