I was wondering if anyone was ever going to notice I did that at the towards the middle of summer last year The look like crap in person though, delam everywhere, and the water inside the tails rotted away the chrome inside the tails, so that is just "chrome" spray paint inside It was more of an experiment then anything. They will most likely end up tinted this spring along with my windows.


yeah...... how many guys do you know that will wash AND WAX their cars when it is only 25* - 28* outside..... yup... this guy right here

They look great. I know you have me beat on the lowest washing temp. I washed in 34-36 a few times but never in the 20'*.

This is what I used on the paint



I used this on the tires






I took the cars up to my local coin operated car wash and used their high pressure soap. I used a microfiber towel to wash the car after I wend around with the soap and hit all the dirt off. I don't use the brush there, it will scratch the hell out of the paint When I was done, I towel dried them then brought them out of the bay into the light. When they were totally dry, I busted out the wax. I kept the wax inside and warm untill I used it, and when I was ready there was no problems at all By the time I was done with the last tire though my fingers were quite chilly

They actually look better in person right now, with all the bright snow in the background, it was hard to get a good pic of either car, especially the '03
