    It was nice today here in Dallas and I have been sick all week and started to feel a little better so I thought I would go out and take some new pictures of my car.

    For those wondering, my wheels are True Forged Chicane RS 18 X 9 w/ 265-35-18's front and 18 X 10 w/ 295-35-18's rear and Goodyear GS-D3 tires.

    Pictures taken with my Nikon D80 with my Nikkor 55-200mm 1:4-5.6G lens.

    Let me know what you think?

    Thats some fairly expensive wax. I see you have to use a cleaner wax first then use the Moose wax. Is it mail order only or can you pick it up in a store? Very soon I will be adding a Mystic Cobra (if I can find one with the right mods for the right price) to the stable and want to keep a shine like yours on it. After several months of being wishy washy on Corvettes and Lightnings and GTOs it was your car that made my dad decide he positivley wants a Terminator. Beautiful car and hopefully in a couple months we can get together with my Cobra and dads Cobra to meet up with you and see that beast in person:nice:

    Expensive? I did not think so. :shrug:

    It was just the last step of a process I used. Here's what I did.

    1) Wash http://www.specialtymotoring.com/ck-1001.html
    2) Clay Bar http://www.specialtymotoring.com/pb-1046.html
    3) SSR 1 on an orange pad, Porter Cable Buffer @ speed 6. http://www.specialtymotoring.com/pb-1012.html
    4) Red Moose Machine Glaze on a blue finishing pad, PC @ speed 4 http://www.specialtymotoring.com/ck-1021.html
    5) Carnauba Moose Wax applied by hand on a sponge pad. http://www.specialtymotoring.com/ck-1014.html

    If I were to do it different I would use Menzerna Nano 106ff instead of the SSR1. http://www.specialtymotoring.com/mz-1011.html

    It's a better compound.

    I have only found these products online. I have not found too many good products off the shelf that give me the look I was after.

    Hope this explains it OK.

    It will be great to meet you and your dad one of these days. :cheers:

    That is cheap for 16oz. I am used to paying 35-40 per quart for rubbing stuff I use. I think you car looks great with that stuff...but I doubt 1 oz. will do an entire SUV as stated in the ad.

    That is a super clean car man. I may do a similar type of system in the spring when I unveil my new look on my cobra.

    See the top of the first post. :nice:

    Thanks man.

    Thanks.

    Thanks. The wheels are not for everyone, but even these pictures don't do them justice.

    I just took some more today with my new filter on my lens. I will post them up tomorrow.
