Nice job on the detail. Did you use the PC to remove the scratches under the handle?

very nice. I particularly like the before and after of the door handle Did you do it by hand and if so what pad/mf and polish did you use for the handle?

Great work, that paint was hammered, very nice turn around. Not digging the ebay headlights though, stock are much better in this case.

i used a 4inch pad with my makita to correct under the door handle. it fit in there perfectly

i used the porter cable for the finishing polish

What kind of wheel cleaner is that in the water bottle sprayer? Sorry if you posted it somewhere and I missed it. Is that CG Sticky wheel gel? If so how do you like it, I have some coming from Detailed Image that I can't wait to try out.
