I live in Washington state so we'll like receive it after all of you since were the furthest away. We'll speed our way to the dealership after we get the call that it's there and then argue my dad who gets to drive it home. (I'll probably let him. I'm young, and inexperienced. A car of this caliber is not good for a new driver). The when we get home we'll take a million pictures and I'll share the news here.

So.....what's your guys'?
I'm pretty much thinking I'm going to one of our Sponsors that's back East. I think I'm going to trailer it back home completely protected. Because the train ride won't be nearly as long as I suspect it would be as a result of this, I don't think there's going to be much rail contamination in the paint. However, that's not going to stop my from doing the whole picture thing first. Then, I plan on almost imediately claybar'ing the whole car, and apply the protective sealers and waxes. I think I'm going to invest in those glass remediation/protective kits, too, that work much like the claybar kits. Then, I'm going to apply a product like Black Magic to all the textured plastic splitter, rocker and diffusers panels to keep them looking good for a LONG time. I'll detail the wheels and tires. I think I'll have the windows tinted within the first day or so, too. Then, it will be about a thousand more pictures. I might have a clear bra applied to the front right away, too; I hate paint chips.

I think that's what I'll have done within about the first couple days. I'll probably start some of the minor mods' by then, too, but I think I'll be doing some of the activities you've outline
