ok here are a few photos to hold you guys over. I was planning to just wash her up and be done with it for now, but once I was done doing that I figured I might as well just give her a full Zaino treatment while I am at it, as I do with every car when I get it.

I will be attempting to do a photo session hopefully this evening, if the weather cooperates and it doesn't rain..but for now I snapped a few at home and when I was out running errands.

Enjoy.

All washed and dry getting used to her new home and waiting for me to give her the Zaino treatment.

Just a shot you can see the color difference when the sun hits it..Didn't get any of the entire car in full sunlight reflecting off of it and it'* kind of cloudy now so I will have to try again another time..so for now just imagine the whole car looking like that area the sun is hitting and that'* what it looks like.

I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for good weather about an hour before sunset so I can get some actual nice shots...but right now it'* not looking too promising, we shall see.

Thanks guys, I love the color too. The first time I stopped to get fuel on the way home I had someone come up to me to ask the color as they loved it and the car. Weather was of course crappy tonight so no new photos. Will have to try tomorrow if the rain holds off...but rain is basically an everyday thing here now late in the day.

I'll keep you "posted" ...
