    thanks alot. it does have its scratches, chips, etc that you would expect on a 87,000 mile car, but overall the polishing and glaze brought back an awesome shine

    Your car isnt too bad either

    Seems those C6 wheels are getting popular on the birds. They look really good.
    Maybe someday I will try a little tireshine and see how the car looks.

    what did you use on the wheels to make them shine so good? and what polish or glaze did you use? i have never used polish or glaze just wax, are they hard to use?

    actually used nothing on the wheels, just wash and dry, im suprised they look so good! I used Meguiars Scratch remover 2.0 and then the Mothers Step Two Sealer and Glaze, followed by Mothers Carnauba Wax, it came out great, was really suprised. It was all relatively easy by hand, just very time consuming compared to using a dual action polisher. Didnt get all the swirls out, but a majority were worked out after a few passes by hand.
