Well, besides a sunburn on my neck? A very shinny car







Washed it last night Then today got out the scratch out and went to work. Had a lot of bad scratches. Kids getting in the back with backpacks, that kind of thing. A few on the fenders from me not putting down a fender cover. and a few others here and there. Got most of them out. Get a few more next time. Then washed it 4 times. I have a well and the water outside is untreated, and VERY hard this year. Even after whipping it looked like I washed it with sand paper. So I used water from inside the house. Much better. But rinsing it off was a pain. Then started waxing. Ofcourse, now there calling for thunderstorms tomorrow. go figure.

Looking good!! I love that color. Some clear corners would be a good investment though, the yellow kind of stands out in the pictures.

Very nice, and yea I know how it feels to wash it then have it rain out. Look out for friday t-showers.
What you use on the scratches?

Sweet, I think those wheels on that car combined with the painted brake calipers looks great!
