Hello Everyone,

My brother gave me a Christmas present when I got my new car. It was from Griot's Garage. It is a wonderful web site that has everything and I mean everything for your garage and caring for your car. So I used the car wash and the car wash mitt to wash my new Mistic Blue M-3 cab. The soap is very good and a little goes a long way. I keep my car in a garage all the time. I travel 20 days out of the month by air so I take a cab to the airport and so it took me 1 year to accually wax my car. So I have always wanted to used a polisher/buffer. Anyway I got their kit and over two days I washed the car and then used the Paint clay and then the buffer to wax it. They have a wax that is called "best of show wax" that is just great. They even have a detailing manual on the web site to explain exactly how to detail your car and how to advoid any pitfalls. I am here to say it was fun to use the buffer and it worked very well. The stuff is kinda of expensive but I have never had a shine as good as this on a dark blue car. I owned a black car that I hand waxed and it always showed the scratches from waxing. This was the first time I was able to wax the car completely without any evidence of waxing I mean it looks as good as the day when I got the car new. I think it is a combination of the buffer and the paint clay. The clay is very sticky and when used with the speed shine it takes off any thing on the paint that the washing misses. Speed shine can be used for a number of things including bug or bird hits. Check out their site its great! :beer: :D

I like your color combination. The white with the grey leather interior is a great combination. :beer:

Very nice work, i love the Mystic blue almost as much as Topaz.


Topaz with Cinnamon or Imola leather is still ridiculously gorgeous. :D
