Default It was dry enough today... (11 800x600)

it was dry enough to get a wash. Too bad it is only 20*. Lets start this off with some before pictures from 1.5 years ago. I still can't figure out why my camera makes my paint so damn shiny.

Wowserz that is clean!!! Looks almost just like my car with the headlight set up your running.

Did you wax it in that weather? looks like it.

And higher end cameras usally make the picture more clear so you can see the reflection on the paint.

A+ for the day though.

the arrowhead is WAY over the top, can you even see back there? MN cops woulda nailed you for obstruction of view.

But yes, the paint is shining really good!

Yeah, when I ordered the arrowhead I never really measured out how big it would be But I messed up putting it on and Im going to get a smaller one and rip that one off in spring. And I can see everything behind me just fine.

Nice.

I'm in agreement with Andrew on the arrowhead though. Less is more!
