Finally have good quality pictures...My 2SS / RS IBM with her Zaino coats applied!

I finally have some decent pics of my car in I wanted to share with you guys. Its a beatiful car, the metallic paint really comes out when the sun is shining. Naturally, when I went to take the photos it started lightly raining for ~10 min.

Standard Zaino process;
Dawn Wash
Clay Bar
Z7 Wash
3X - Z2 w/ZFX followed by Z6

Also there are 2 coats of Z2 on the polished wheels. This is totally the way to go; washed the car this morning and the wheels cleaned off super-easy.

I have not done the front fascia; I'm waiting on that until I get a 3M clear bra installed. That should happen this week, so long as I can get a half day off somewhere in there.

Enjoy the Pics!

Nice car but good quality pics they're not , what kind of camera you using ? You need to invest in a good one , those pics are not in sharp focus , but the car is nice for sure

My buddy also brought his 335xi. Some pics of the two of them together, not a matchup you'd normally see, but 2 pretty cool cars I must say.

Well, its all relative; up to now all I had was the photos I shot on my blackberry @ 3.2 MP

My fiance mis-placed her good camera somewhere in the house, so these were taken with an older 5.0 MP camera owned by the friend/neighbor who drives the 335xi. These are super-high quality compared to earlier.

If anyone has a 10.0 MP camera they'd like to send my way, I'll be happy to put it to good use!

But it don't matter how many MP's it has if the lens is crap , sorry to say but Higher MP's is a myth it's all about the lens

So a 1MP camera will look great with an incredible lens?

J/K I know what you're saying, just don't go so far as the say high MPs are crap...they just aren't the ONLY thing that matters

I'd put pics from a Nikon D1 up against any 10 Mp or better camera any day and the D1 only has 2.7 MP's

I have to agree, the camera probably isn't doing the car justice.

But, from what I see, your Camaro looks pretty darn nice! Make sure and add another coat once the clear bra is installed.

Nice job!
