Default Additional Detailing

Well I was pissed off today, for various unimportant reasons, so I needed somethin to get my mind off it. And it rained a couple nights ago, so the car needed to be at least washed. But I kinda go carried away....so four and a half hours later I ended up with this: :P

- washed it
- dried the whole thing by hand
- buffed it
- exhaustively removed all the brake dust
- put some mother'* chrome polish on the rims
- put 2 coats of rubber protectant on ALL the seals

Quite the relaxing experience.

I wasn't originally even gonna make this thread, but Garb made me post the pics :P lol, nah, I was quite pleased with how some of the came out, so I had to share.



Oh, that'* mean lookn':

It looks like the road continues into the car! I love it! That'* my fave I think.



A car driving down the street :P




Action shot!

The stock power duct on the G35:


If anyone wants any fullsize just say so.

Shhhhh, that'll be our little secret. Well the hood is getting completely fixed and repainted, as is the bumper hopefully some time this month.
