Just curious, does the paint correction make a lot of difference on a white car?
I know that a good detail on dark metalic colours makes it look more reflective.

IMO it does, seemed to me that the paint had quite a bit more gloss after polishing, under the halogens the paint just glowed.

Thanks George, that too was one of my favorite shots, I didn't realize it till after that the van in the background kind of ruined the symmetry.
