Hopefully I don't get the West Nile Virus now...





Nice lookin max!

Neighbor's 2005 Monte Carlo SS

In short, we were removing some pretty heavy oxidation from the hood of this car. It took 5-6 passes with BOTH a rotary and a random orbital to get the hood looking right.





End result:

^^^ Ultimate compound is some good stuff. I wanted to try M105/205 but couldn't find it locally. I used Ultimate Compound that I had in the garage over the weekend on my Altima that was swirled from wetsanding. It took quite a few passes with my porter cable and an orange pad but I was able to remove about 90% of them. Followed it up with NXT2.0 and then Collinite 845. I'm now set for the winter.

Just spent 9 hours on mine yesterday getting her all ready for Spring.
Washed, clay-bared, poilshed, waxed, and buffed. New wiper blades and rain x. Detailed the rims and put some tire gel on. My interior is always keept spotless so I did not have to do much. Just a quick leather cleaner (once a week), shine on the vinyl, and replaced the cup holder assembly since my previous one broke.
