    Black Corvette

    I have done a number of details in the last month. A lot of cool cars, but just not much time to upload, do reviews, and post
    However, here's one for ya'...
    This vette was detailed in about 14hrs in a span of two days
    The owner wanted to have it detailed for a car show
    I hate this ones. Lots of work on minor details like cleaning brake calipers, all nook and crannies, every little thing that you don't want to fail at a show

    Here are some of the before shots...









    Some after shots...

    He's the coolest guy there is. I agree the wing is not a thing for everybody. I forgot to take some shots of the car with the doors fully open. Yes, it has lambo doors

    For red, Pinnacle Souveran
    I've been using some Duragloss products. They're excellent!!!
    I would recommend getting the Duragloss 101 and the Duragloss 111
    The DG 101 is an All-in-One product that cleans and protect the paint. It's very easy to use, and produces some stunning results. You can top it with the DG-111 for added protection, though the DG-101 works great on its own, and they won't break the bank either. For less than 20 bucks you can pick up both at your local CarQuest autoparts. They also come with a yellow foam applicator
    I've used it on black, and it looks amazing, so anything IME that looks good on black, always looks great on red...

    I was just thinking the same thing. I wonder if he actually wins anything?

    I'm sure it cost alot of money to look that bad, you think he could have at least got some decent wheels for it.

    I was looking at a Vette mag the other day, some of these show Vettes are completely ridiculous.

    That was a very nice detail on that vette. The car has plenty of power but it has been overdone appearance wise.

    Thanks for the comments

    Yup. I think the red on the rear fascia was an overkill, other than that, the car is a head turner. Not msny people would do it this way, but still get looks...

    I personally am not a fan of chrome. You'll never see chrome wheels on a car owned by me
    I detailed a few corvettes, most of them with chrome wheels, and they look nice when clean and polished, but that's not for me
    I like wings, but not more than 2" tall. It's just what people like

    Goose- another quality detail job! It looks like alot of attention to detail on that one! The black paint looks like a bottomless pool of water. Awsome reflections with very deep/dark/wet black paint.I dont think it could get any better.Very impressive.

    As for the mods- I am not a fan. To each his own- I heard that one time.
