I don't think I've ever seen red with the chrome rims, that'* pretty hot.

And I must compliment you on the immaculate condition of both the paint and the carpetting.

I'm not a fan of red but HOLY CRAP! that car looks awesome even before the tint.
I love your rims too, I'd kill for them.

aCiD - I am definately going to look into those tips. They look great on yours, will have to do some investigating.
and thank everyone else again. My wife tells me I am a little obsessive with the car cleaning. She always tells me I am going to wax the paint off of my cars. I like doing it though. Nothing like a warm day , cold beer and working on your car!

Just last weekend I took about four hours cleaning it up. First of course I washed, then used Meguiars paint cleaner, then Meguiars Polish, then used Meguiars NXT for the final coat. If you look close in these pics, it was actually raining today, and you can see some water beads in the one trunk shot. My wife got a new digital camera today, and we were trying it out, thought if the water looked too bad in the pics I would take more later. Thing about that Meguiars is, if you do a good job on it, then everything will just slide right off. I have found that it is not anywhere as hard to keep them clean if you do a REALLY good wax job at the beginning of the summer, then just regular waxing the rest of the year.

Bud, your car is drop dead gorgous and I cant believe it'* a 96. The color is of course my favorite and the finish is astonishing. you did a hell of a job with it. Even the engine bay looks so much fresher than youd expect for the age. It is amazing , the pride and work that Club members have gone to making and keeping their Bonnies looking so sharp. COTM'* are getting tougher and tougher to make a decision.

Is there such a thing as COTY....LOL thats a new one on me. I better get that Louis Viton Suede for my headliner and figure out just what door hinges I want......ROFL.

They're Ractive Black Chrome Oval, part number T815B.

I got mine at PartSource, and they guaranteed them against any rusting or pitting or chipping, I'm not sure if you guys have PartSource in the US though. (Assuming of course that you're in the US :P)
