My first attempt at a scratch free finish, I thought you guys would appreciate



It wasn't perfect, and it took forever, but I am quite pleased.

Not too shabby! The hard work paid off.... like the color keyed wheel hoops too. Nice touch.

I used some Meguire's stuff that I've had around the house, and then s turtle wax finishing polish. That being said, when this stuff's out I'll be buying Adams products, the folks on here have convinced me. LOL
