Wax On/Wax Off

Started a few mods, strictly cosmetic, she has more than enough power for me. I did remove the camaro plastic/chrome letters off the sides, bowties, and put some blackout film over the taillights and side lights.

First though was a coat of sealer followed by three coats of wax. No machines, all elbow grease. Wax on...wax off. A few more coats and I'll have that mirror finish I'm looking for... I'll go out and take a picture

Man that Ashen Grey looks sinister. Nice plate frame.

I'm diggin the Ashen Grey too. I didn't like the Camaro lettering either so I replaced it with the same GM lettering but with supercharged instead of Camaro.

These things were made to drive not wax.
Break it in before it's winter.

Wow, great comments from everybody. Love the ones with humor, I LOL on a couple of those comments. Friday I get the clear bra and the miles will start immediately. The Red jewel SS I traded-in just had way too many nicks and chips. So that's the reason the miles haven't started adding up. By the time the weekend is over she'll have a good amount more. But until Friday comes it's going to be wax on... wax off, a few more coats at least. Plus it's good exercise...wax on....wax off...

All the coats of wax on her didn't stop a single nick, got my fingers crossed that the clear bra will do the trick...

Looks like you're enjoying your ZL1.
Your car is awesome with the cosmetic mods.
That is the exact car I'm getting delivered in Dec so thanks for letting me see what it looks like with your mods. (not that I'm going to copy you)

You want to see the Ashen Gray really done up, check out Deke736, his pictures made me stand up and applaud. Seriously, check em out. Best Ashen Gray I've seen yet, my fav is when he pops the hood. AWESOME!

I applaud the devotion and commitment you have laid upon your new baby.

Be aware however that your clear bra installer will remove all wax as clear bra films need clean, residue free paint to properly adhere.
