Yeah, that was from last fall when I posted in the Show N Shine section. They gave me a couple free goodies for using the pictures. When I looked at the one shot I took yesterday I noticed how much it looked like the one from the Collinite page. But it is noticeably better when you compare how the tree looks in the hood.
Yea, I noticed that they were very similar but different pictures. I didn't notice the difference in the paint but the angle was slightly different though I wouldn't expect the IW 845 to look as good as a P21S test product let alone after a Menzerna polish. I am seriously considering the both of those Menzerna polishes and am pleased to see yet another positive review.

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who'* got the shinyest Bonnie of them all.... GRIMM"

Truly impressive results. How long did it take to do the car?

It took somewhere around 8-10 hours. Definitely not a fast process.

That is amazing! I wish I would have been able to get my black SSEi to look that good.

Wow.... 8-10 hours. Results are gorgeous, but that is a tremendous investment of time. If I spent that much time on a Saturday waxing my Bonnie my wife would be so pissed she'd make me sleep in it.

I actually did it over the course of several days. I have a two year old and seven month old, so it'* hard to actually find time to do it. More than half of it was done when I was home on a day off last week. Hopefully I can get a little faster with practice. I'm tempted to buy a rotary since they say it will cut the time in half, but I just don't know if I want to take the risk.

You may want to check out the Maguire’* site. They put on free clinics all across the USA and you have the opportunity to use a rotary buffer. The class is a worthwhile investment of time.

BTW your car looks excellant! Nice job.
