thanks Dave! itll take me a while to get this thing cleaned and looking the way i want it with all my surfing on detailing forums. looks like i have another purchase coming my way for new pads and polishes. hah. worth it in the end though!

thanks TD! hand jobs (pun intended?) really cant compare to what a machine can do. i did a couple passes with the machine and it would have taken hours for doing it by hand.

HAHA yea a hand job is all i got right now, little something special u know?

not the best but hey it works to a degree

haha but in all honesty i would love one there are just more things id rather have, but if i find a deal i cant refuse i will be picking one up for sure!

$250 after tax and shipping which may be a bit more for you but still...$215 plus whatever that is for you aint bad.

Looking sweeeet!! I did the same the thing the other day to my wife's Beemer and it looks like a brand new car! The Meguiars 105 & 205 really worked well with the PC.

Nice results!! Takes a lot of time to do it right but when you see a paint like that in the end. It's all worth it. :thumbsup:
