from a year ago...

doesnt look to bad from far away, actually looks pretty good


you can see all the defects on the hood, scratches, perminant waterspots, fading...


rock chips have completely gone through the paint all the way down to the plastic


this is the fading/perminant water spots on the hood


tons of little scratches on the mirrors


an extremely weird keying of some type


scratches on back pillar


here you can see the difference between the hood and the fender


not sure what causes these, they do not buff out...what should i do?


same problem, they look like its water forming under the clearcoat or wax...how do i get this off?

Too bad I voted anyways the only problem I had was the hood bubble
but I got that fixed and I do have 1 ding in a door that I noticed some jerk in a monster Excursion parked to close. I'd really like to know how he got out of his truck.
I wanted to return the favor but thats against my better judgement.
