    Goose....THANK YOU for turning me on to the Prima line. Great results.
    I would have NEVER heard of Victoria's without you either. Can't wait to see how the Victoria's quick detailer and Victoria's super wash do.



    Victoria Concours Red wax > _________
    (Prima Finish and Prima Amigo don't hurt either )







    That is 9 1/2 year old paint.

    Portercable was used for everything but the Victoria's red wax.

    Used a 5" mild cutting pad with the Menzerna.
    Used a 5" polish pad with the Prima Finish.
    Used a 6.5" finishing pad with the Prima Amigo.
    Used an applicator pad (Meguiar's) with the Victoria's Concours Red.

    Photoshop isn't even installed on this computer.
    I do need to learn it though.

    Thanks!! It was tough getting it finished...90 degree weather makes for a tired Curtis once it was finally done.

    those two mpictures look like a scene from the movie 'Sin City' where everything would be black and white, except for one color, like red for blood, haha.

    how long did this whole process take you?

    The first process was the longest. You really have to work in the product. That took about 2 1/2 hours because we tried a few things.
    Total was probably 9-10 hours.
