Very nice indeed, looks like all that hard work paid off. Awesome shine !!

Looks great!!!!! I think I saw one small spec of dust just above the left taillight though----LOL. It looks like your a little cramped for space with all the toys--I know the feeling.

Looks good my friend. I see you have a couple cases of a certain blue box for refreshment huh. :smileup:

oh man. they toys are just the begining of my problems in this garage...two car my arse, maybe two smart carts...HAHA

i just got my shed up, so in the next couple weeks im sure to get most of my garage space back!!!

hehe blue box refreshements..other than bieng on sale right now, i only bought the blue boxes because of the free speaker they came with...rechargeable for use in the new shed with the IPOD!

my friend just suggested to me that the title of all my posts should be "this was a five beer job", this is a 10 beer job" etc.

this one, while the timing as short (5 hours) ended up being a few more beers than i needed..HAHA hence the dust spot above the tailight!!

Looks great!

Especially on black, that makes things infinitely harder.

SVRT is one of my favorite products. That stuff last for a long time when it's applied a few times. Great job!

Leadfootluke 08-20-2012 10:09 PM

What dilution do you use Hyperdressing at?

And how do you like Opti-Bond at 1:1?

I see you and I probably have a comparably selection of products from your pictures.

i did the hyper dressing at 4:1 and tried it on my rear tires...first time ive tried it. honestly, when it first went on i didnt really like it, but it has actually settled in pretty good. i didnt clean the tires anything special to be honest, wwhich is probably why it didnt look good, but im going to try it on a few other things.

so far i had the same impression with the optibond. i tried it full strength and 1:1 and only found it spread better at 1:1, but seemed to give the same results either way.

i tried it on the fronts (again i didn't clean the tires all that well before use), but to be fair, i want to clean the tires with APC first then try again.

they have both had great reviews, so im sure they will be fine when applied porperly.

sorry ghost rider, im not sure what SVRT is...

GhostR1der 08-20-2012 10:28 PM

Lol I didn't zoom in on the engine bay cleaners. I thought it was a bottle of adams super VRT. It's a dressing for vinyl, rubber, and trim. It's not super glossy and dries crazy fast. It doesn't sling anywhere like a log of dressings. It's some good stuff. I use it on all my plastics on the outside, inside, and engine bay. It also makes your tires look deep black and new without a super shine.
