Thank you! The wheels are (shh) from a 2006 V6 Mustang. They're base model wheels, so they're completely silver with no extra decoration. I love that stock look, and I'm so glad I was able to find these as I did. Craigslist rocks! For $450, I got about 1K-mile or less wheels and tires.

It is dark cherry metallic, but I think it'* something like 9800U IIRC. Can we find out which cars used the two colors?

Not sure if your color is the same with a different code? Mine is a 97 Bonneville SE dark cherry metalic code 77U.
What wax did you use?
Thanks

I think it is the same color. I know that 78U is the Aurora'* pearl white, but why not have one number before it be cherry? Makes sense to me!

The wax I used is Meguiar'* Cleaner Wax. I'm considering going over that with Caranuba shortly. Of course, pictures will be available shortly after. You should definitely use a cleaner wax, wait a few hours, and then add a thick and delicious wax on top. Mother'* Caranuba is fairly widely available, or you could splurge on a Menzerna bottle, available online.
