Adams Polish Scratch and Ceramic Kits COMPLETED!...

Well, after a 12 hour marathon, and a couple of hours today doing the interior, wheels, AND CLEAN-UP ;o), Finally got it done -- then immediately took it for a ride! So shiny!

Last night @ Midnight after I did the sealant:


Really like the Adams products -- they give great results...

Didn't take a ton of pics -- pretty much the same as when I had a detailer do it -- except I did this one...

Not too bad for a car raced on road courses!

So, as things go, this is pretty much the car I dreamed of having (except blue, which is my favorite color - wife loved the RJT, guess who won). Not much left to do, except the transmission — lose some weight (me that is) or Z/28 brakes ;o)

What to do next....

Took her out again tonight -- running fantastic -- wife just loves the heated Recaros -- still, it rides like a track car -- which I personally love.

Hit 2000 miles since the GPI rebuild, everything is breaking in nicely -- not stompin' on it in this weather -- just no grip on the tires (57° tonight).

Just gonna keep it as clean as I can, drive it to get some breakin miles on it -- then in the spring, fresh DT40, diff oil change -- Lucas 85W140 (Trans is in great shape right now)...

Ah, just a joy to drive -- and it has the 'new car smell' too!

You did the right thing!! Get the color SHE likes! I just lucked out, we had the same favorite in my house.

My A6 is holding strong too, I'm kind of thinking the 6l80 doesn't have a huge sale value, so currently I will only upgrade if it explodes *shrug* right or wrong.


Car looks awesome man. Keep it up.....

"Idol Hands"!!! Hahaha..... it is a curse.

Thanks!

6L80 is holding up for me too -- I get the reasons for a 6L90 but, after talking to Ryan @ GPI, heat is a big issue if not managed.

I'll just keep changing the trans fluid @ 10k miles, or 5K miles if I'm tracking it more.

There's ALWAYS something to do on the beast -- just need to find it.

One thing for sure, the Recaros are fantastic. Was concerned, but now having driven with them a while, glad I got them before they become 'extinct'...

Right now, very content with enjoying the fruits of the labor ;o)
