NX1 --- Lotus Esprit V8

What do you guys think about this nice toy?

I took some before and after pics but they are not good for true comparison. When the car came in was really dirty, it had the usual swirls, stains, bird droppings, water spots, some scuff marks on the tail lights, on one of the flip-up headlights and on some of the lower panels, minor scratches and some larger scratches that were already touched up.

This was a one day job, I wish I could have spent more time on the paint to make it look better but I tried my best and the owner was extremely happy with it when he picked it up tonight. On his own words... "Looks so good, I'm afraid to drive it out now" That alone was worth the hard work I put into it today.

BEFORE

Thanks Marty! Yeah I can't complain about the quality of cars coming in. Word is spreading slowly but surely .
I know I haven't post pics lately of the cars I've been doing, I guess I'll start a new thread showing all the cars I've done lately.

I wish, I only had about 9 hrs with that car. It definitely needed more of my time on the paint and the interior as well.
