AWESOME shine!! I love seeing cars/trucks with miles on them that looks as good as your's...it is a testament to the owners passion for detailing!!

Thanks, this is my daily driver/toy. It's just over two years old and I drive a 90 mile round trip to work 6 days a week in all weather. I still have 3 years to pay on the thing...wonder how many miles it'll have on it then (or if there'll be any paint left)

That looks very good, sure looks new acctually better than new! It will pay off in the end when and if you ever go to sell it. It show it was taken care of. On three vehicle that I have traded/sold they looked new when I sold them. In fact my last truck after 3 1/2 years and 60,000 miles I didn't have a single door ding, but I had a lot of long parking lot walks and still do.

Looks great! Yes it will look just as great 3 years from now if you keep the same maintenace routine.

Tires and wheels look great too! Hot Shine is my favorite tire product. I prefer the high gloss look on the tires. AIO does a great job on wheels although I have never tried #16 or #26 on wheels yet.

Those wheels look absolutely perfect. Super job and thanks for sharing the pictures. Hot Shine is definately a great product and is readily available at stores like WallyWorld... NICE!

Car looks great Don!

Another real good (and all Meguiars combo) is #20 Polymer Sealant and #16 Pro Paste Wax. Both products are super user friendly and after 3 weeks and several days of rain, both vehicles are beading like mad!



#16 has a very wet look to it.
