A little wash and wax and photoshoot.

Well my buddy hit his car with the buffer a week or two ago and he finally a chance to put some wax on it and he decided to change from his normal caranuba meguiars and try somethin different. I recommended NXT cause its so easy to apply and the shine is just amazing. The NXT doesnt last as much as caranuba waxes, but as much as we wax our car its not a big deal. He loved it and so he called Wyatt and Me up so we could take some pics and here they are. Hes got some more and when I get ahold of them Ill post them up to. But here they are for now.
Ill start with Matts car.


And here are me and the Dinan M3.




Thats all for now

Its an M3 with the Dinan Supercharger and almost everyother Dinan part. It runs okay.

No I never get hassled for having no front plate. I get hassled for having loud ASS exhaust. The one time I got a ticket for it it was because I did a HUGE burnout in a parking lot and since i was on public property he couldnt do shit so he sat and waited 3 hours for me to pull out and the second i did he pulled me over for no plate. I stuck it on, showed the lady, payed 10 bucks then while i was still in the court parking lot I took it back off. No probs since then though.

I don't have a front plate either. I'll pay my little 30 dollar fines. I am not ruining my car!

I haven't been hassled yet.

reason why car is there = still working on everything cuz i still havent moved to get the final cash flow i need for the final parts

no bumper = i was in a small accident about 3 and a half years ago, and i decided to scrap the bumper. new one is at my ex-gfs house

no headlights = selling them. opting for flush mounted ones. i will post a pic as soon as i find it in about 10 minutes

pepsi on hood = i was thirsty, and i didnt wanna put it on the floor. and i love pepsi.... almost as much as women.


EDIT: found the headlamp mod, check attachments

I too love the effects of a good waxing. Nice pictures.

These were from a couple of months ago when I discovered Meguiar's Yellow Carnauba Wax.

Haha its funny you say that because it is my desktop.

About the wax I think I either used Meguiars NXT or Eagle One Nano Wax.
I only use that stuff cause its quick but here pretty soon Im gonna hit the car with some heavycut polish and then go from there and hopefully I can get a better than new finish. I doubt it though, thats why im just gonna repaint it and delete the stripes. Im to meticulous about my car to have a scratch on it.
