Default Winter Wash Time!!! - 56k...Grab a drink...

So it was a beautiful 50*F day here in Western NY. Kind of overcast for the main wash job, but the sun came out when it was time to dry! I didn't go hog wild on the washing, but the results were GREAT. Have a look!

I really have to find some time to clear out the corners all the way around!

Now I just dread driving out of the driveway (which is a muddy mess right now!)...

Thanks. I painted my grill with a heavy silver flake paint. It really grabs the light. Too bad it wasn't very sunny out when I took those pictures. The grill literally looks like it'* going to pop out when the sun hits it just right!

Um.. Yeah... I'm pretty sure that'* how they all come... Your'* aren't the same? It might look different being on a black car. It makes it blend in much more than it would on a different color.

<---- Wiping drool off face.


Did you tint your rear tail lights or is it just the way the car is angled?

No tint on the tails... That'* just how they look. Let me see if I can find another picture of the backend for comparison...

Here you go...


This one is with my summer tires/rims on and much more sun! All of the pictures in the first post were taken with overcast skies. That rear angle shot was a little darker because it was so close to the open garage.
