Pics after washing my GC +Photoshop

Got my order in from Greg @ Detailed Image and I was really excited to get to work on the Jeep, and to play with the new products. I used a 2BW w/ Grit Gaurds and a "reTHICKulous" Wool Wash Mitt, using CG's Maxi Suds ll. Shined up the tires and trim with CG's Silk Shine. Wheels were handled with Sonax Full Effect.

All in all really happy with the products , but due to my excitement I was a little unprepared when it came to drying so I ended up with water spots , that just means I'll be ordering a MF drying towel asap. Anyways on to the pics... and scroll to the bottom for the photochop I did...

My helper Diesel checked out the products and approved so we got to work...



Here's before, unwashed since purchase a few weeks ago REALLY low miles though.




product



2BW w/ GG's



Sonax FE at work



sorry no in progress pics but here it is done, love the shine/reflection





here's the PS, this is what I'd like it to look like soon ...



just so I'm clear it isn't my intention to shave the handles it was just easier to get rid of them then to make em black

No handles looks cool. You might be on to something.

Juan is on a distinguished road
Your ride is nice! I dig the stock 20's. I bet you could trade a Laredo guy that is into chrome the door handles and mirrors. I can't wait to see it blacked out with the 20's. Are you thinking about doing the rims in a black powder coat, or doing a black chrome?

Re: Pics after washing my GC +Photoshop

Thanks guys, I like the look of the PS alot! The flake is so hot, really makes this color that much cooler!!

Juan - Yeah I was hoping I can find some guys, I might have a guy lined up for the handles and I'm gonna send a few pieces out to get wrapped in vinyl and the grill will get painted. The 20's are great and not sure what I'm gonna end up doing.
