Sry for late reply...I use meguiars tech wax 2.0 for the final step which is waxing...after claying the car. ..I use meguiars polish which does not have any cutting agents in it and has essential oils and polymers to make black paint shine "looking into a pitch black pond with black water so still it reflects everything looks like glass!"
Glad to see things are going well for you and congratulations on the impending birth of your daughter. I will take your advice on the:icon _worthy: "never let anything hit the cement as it will pick up even the smallest grains of sand and will mar the paint! Same for any clay bar used on the paint" You never said what kind of polish or wax you used. I just installed a set of Corbeau CR1 Racing seats with the seat belt harness bar and the 3" 5-point camlock harness. Installed a fire extinguisher on the harness bar (looks awsome). Installed a new Optima yellow top performance battery and when (if) the weather ever warms up I will install the Cervini Tail Light Conversion Kit. I just started posting on Instagram (under banditsno1fan) if you want to see some new photos
This is the last part to my long message so read the second one first..
I miss the car big time and I have not gotten any new toys as of yet since I am saving to buy a house in the next yr or 2 and have a daughter on the way and my wife is due in Sept of this year! Keep me posted and I will continue to enjoy the changes and see the trophies you win with the seasons car shows!
I use the porter cable (as well as on the stang when she was mine) and its the best I have seen for the price...use only soft finishing pads (usually black or red) and never let anything hit the cement as it will pick up even the smallest grains of sand and will mar the paint! same for any clay bar used on the paint. I have the speed for a nourishing polish with no cleaners set to 3.5-4 and with the wax I set it a 5 or 5.5 ..never needed any faster speeds from the porter cable. Clay the car first and if you drop anything on the cement please throw it away as it will pick up the smallest grains of sand and mar the paint! and yes I am repeating myself and not having a senior moment (afterall turning 40 in July..lol) I have only needed to wax once a yr since owning the car from day one and promise me if you ever sell the car and she remains in decent shape please contact me first.
I am glad to see I didn't disappoint you,it has still not seen a drop of WATER and will not as long as I can help it.I am looking to upgrade my buffer to a "Porter Cable 7424XP" what do you think ? Did you get your new toy yet ? As far as visitation right go we will have to see Ha Ha We do have a big car show in July 18,19,20 with over 7000 cars called "Syracuse Nationals"
The car look amazing and I am so happy to see the upgrades that are still tasteful and tactful! I am also glad to see the car still looks (paint and body) in great shape too. Thanks for the visitor message it really means alot to me. Please keep in touch...its like a kid that has grown up and left home for more adventures and found a new home that clearly lives up to my standards for how I would have wanted to see the car. I want to come visit this summer if possible!?

hi, hope your holiday went well,for some reason I can't respond the other way like before.I am still looking forward to the new pics. and if you could a vid. of the car start up and walk around and in side to please. You are right about the feeling you get when the car is starts up and backs up out of that trailer. I just sold my 1979 camaro Z28 with a 454 30 over with a 871 super charger putting out about 700 hp, love the sound.
Look forward to see the pic/vid. and don't worry if I do buy her she will go home in a inclosed trailer.
