Proper wash and engine dress up
 
So this was the first proper wash since I bought the car last Wed. The paint condition is driving me nuts and the car has a date with my Rupes LHR15 but I dont know when I will have the time to spend 12-15hrs buffing it out.
I did some engine dress up as well

I really like the blue contrast under the hood!

Nice! I grew up in Johnstown, PA (65 miles) east of Pittsburgh.
Back in the mid 90's I attended art school in Pittsburgh and lived on East Carson Street.
I had some great memories in Pittsburgh. It has grown so much since I left in 1995!
GO PENS & Steelers!!!!

LOL - I moved South in 1995 and never looked back. ;)
I like to go and visit family and friends in PA over the Holidays, but GA is home now.

Rudolph Hucker 01-18-2014 10:53 PM

hope you clay bared it dude..if not go and run your hand along the paint and you'll see why clay baring is vital

Minion 01-19-2014 12:28 PM

Plasti Dip is holding up to the heat no problem? I've heard of people putting it on exhaust tips. I can't help but think it would just turn to goo with the heat.

05xrunner 01-19-2014 12:34 PM

yea it has been painted for 2months now no problems. I am in processes of redoing it now with all paint. just so all the colors match because I got some parts from emblem pros underhood in blue and wasnt same color

05xrunner 01-20-2014 01:49 PM

so I finished redoing the blue. Took all the plastidip off and then repainted it with all the same color blue.
