Default Black Betty ****** up for COTM (lots O' pics added, no 56K)

OK, I ended up having to go to a party tonight before I had a chance to go take some pictures, but here is a little pre-whorage to wet your whistle:

This is the dirtiest you'll see this car between April and November. OK, it really doesn't look dirty, but it'* been two weeks since her bath, so she is dirty:

Man, you can't beat this beading, the way it just rolls off the hood....


OK, I was able to get some more pictures. Unfortunately, we had rain Sunday night, so the roads were a tad wet so the car got a little dirty in between. And I'm also bummed, as I was hoping for some nice fall color shots, but there wasn't much to be had at the park I went to.






Obligatory reflection shot. Unfortunately you can see some road rash developing.














Thanks for looking!

Looks great as usual. What is the LSP this time? I have been using Collinite 476 with good protection results lately but it needs another coat. Your protection looks very good, how recently did you apply?

Thanks. Three weeks ago I put down two coats of Poorboys EX-P sealant over two days, and then the next weekend I added a coat of Collinite 845. I plan to add a second layer of 845 just before snow flies. That will keep her protected until spring.

The extra pics are welcome. The finish really pops! Nice interior as well. The graphite looks good with the black exterior.
