Great day out, about 75* when I left work, scheduled a wash day with my good friend Justin.

So the Bonne got a wash, triple stage buff, rinse, wax and polish today. I can not believe how this thing looks. The paint is so smooth now, you can't even get a beer bottle to stay on the hood.

Here'* some pics, I'll get sunny pics tommorow......But here we go....from the drying after the initial wash to the finished product:

That area brings back memories of dumb a$$es like PAt Foriti and other dumba$$es. Yup, good times.
