You most certainly do Dizzle. Not mopped it yet. All done by hand so far. Autobrite lance with Bilt-Hamber S/F. Standard detailers wash methods using Auto-Finesse Lather. Meguiars Clay, followed by Auto-Finesse Tripple. Need to wash again this weekend and reapply some more Tripple followed by a sealing wax.

Looking sweet man! Couple of questions:

What percentage tints are on the rears?
Is the exhaust just a backbox, if so..where from and how much?
Is the finish on the grille a satin or gloss?

Tints are the lightest of a choice of four. With the dark interior it makes it look really dark. I would have liked them a bit lighter. Back box is from a company called BCS. About 200 though I got mine on here in the classifieds. Grills are my standard chrome ones painted gloss black by a local body shop for 20 and are still excellent nearly a year later.

It all ties in very well! I asked about the backbox as my exhaust was disgusting. Managed to shine it up though the weekend. Also found some gloss black spray upstairs which is nearly full so will be doing that at some point.
