Photobucket has removed automatic picture compression, so I'm using a cheap app on my phone, it's doing the job but reducing the overall quality of the pics, apologies.
Love the autox shots, look at those front tires!
The UMI Suspension guys got REALLY good shots of my stock front suspension action.
Think they're going to be using it as a meme or 2 at some point. I've got camber, just in the wrong direction.
Daughter's last practice with her old team, figured I'd drive the car. Again, don't realize how big modern cars have gotten. Right after this pic it started a torrential downpour, sucked.
After that, got it home, and started my normal regimen for cleaning it up the way I usually do. Since I fubared my lower back I was having reservations about firing up the big buffer as it's heavy and has a lot of torque, can really slap you around if you aren't careful. I ended up getting this small orbital DA buffer for Christmas, 6 months later I finally get to plug it in.
It honestly didn't do too bad. I'm used to tearing through this job and seeing major results. This took a LOT more time, didn't cut the paint as much as I'm used to, but did clean it up. I "buff", this setup is "paint correction", not as aggressive. Still, results speak for themselves.
Not wanting to spend another night guessing at results I pulled up my panties, plugged in ol bessy, and slung some 3M perfect it. It's a finish polish / glaze that REALLY takes out swirl marks and gives you a deep gloss. I tell people it makes the paint feel like hard jello. Garage ended up like this.
And car ended up like this. The orbital DA was perfect for applying wax though, kept me from tearing through my shoulder doing countless swirls all over the car. Car is a deep red now, am actually happy with how it looks. *The paint finish, not all the flaws, trim, wheels, stance, interior, etc..*
