60 days is up and I finally got a chance to throw some wax on and really clean it up.

60 days? Why so long?

Is that a metallic BC?

They are attachments on the site.. looks like Mike could see them?

The shop told me I should wait 60 days before waxing. It was a rough 60 days. The second picture is a better representation of the color, it'* metallic gray.

I see them just fine.

I thought that was either metallic gray or silver. I'm sure it looks even better in person!!

Wow, 60 days though. I have heard up to a week or so and you can go straight to polishing.

Did they sand down to bare metal or did they just take the CC off and apply the new color to the existing BC?

The bumpers, hood, and quarter panel were either already bare metal (plastic), or got sanded down to it. The doors got blended so I would imagine they just took off the clear coat.

I can't see the pictures. But 60 days is long enough to wait before putting wax on. This reminds me I need to wax my bumper it'* been long enough now.
