    Very clean. I really like how you put the lamp post on the sail panel.

    Maybe I'm the only one that read into this, but seems op is using rubbing compounds too much. I've read several posts mentioning it. I know he has swirls now, but is constant abuse from a rubbing compound helping or hurting?

    I've never had to use anything as harsh as rubbing compound on my bird yet.

    well i dont think i use to to much because i hardly use it but i think it might be effecting the wax because when you have wax on your car should it bead up and slide right off?mine just gets wet and gives an all over shine look like it doesnt bear it just spread across the car.

    LOL They are (if I remember correctly) 3"ID stainless tips from X treme racing. I got then for a half desent price but I think @ the time I should have moved them under the rear notches more. After my slow going build is nearing completion I'm moving them to the side with a different custom set up with retangular tips..

    Back when my dad had his black t/a vert he used a california car duster to keep the paint clean from day to day. Just pulled in the garage, popped it out of the trunk, and got the dirt off. I'm not sure on which ones since this was '00-'02 but he always used Meguiars products and it shone like a mirror

    cool, i was lookin on here to get some advice. i've got a black TA, i've not had it long, but i know black can be nerve racking sometimes to keep clean and shiny. gonna check that auto geek site out. she's gonna get repainted probably next month, so i want to make sure i take good care of that fresh paint

    that seems like a little much, lol.

    The majority of the time I had my camaro, the highway i lived off of was under construction. East texas is all red clay, so my car was filthy daily. After I moved, they finished in 2 months, bastards.

    if the bubble on your rear window is freaking you out, get it vinyld black. i know that most of our cars, when the rear window gets tinted, the top part of the window with all the black little dots seem to bubble. i went back to the shop to get the top part redone (100%warranty for 30days). next day getting out of work they bubbled again. so i finally listened to my friend that did it and vinyld it. it looks great, and you cant even see it on your rearview mirror.
