Default Pics of the SpecB

My husband and I were bored so we decided to take some pictures of the Leggy. We are obviously not photographers!

What ya'll think??

Nice picture!! Don't look too different from a pro's to me.

I like it when it is all wet.

I also like the wet look.

You guys might not be pros, but those pictures are heads-and-shoulders above what I'm able to do! Great job!

Oh HO! You like it wet as well eh?


I like your pinstriping better than mine. It is less noticable from afar.

i think you need a polisher (machine), the correct foam pad (like sand paper, the correct grit), and i have never tried the product but i hear lots of good things about Meguiar’s #83 Dual Action Cleaner Polish

Check it out

SC, your swirl marks are so fine, I woundn't recommend using any harsh polishing at this point. Your car/paint is still new, so I would recommend using Hand Glaze before you wax your car next. 3M makes an awesome Hand Glaze that will hide fine swirl marks makes your paint look wet.


This is what I use:




"Product Description
A hand applied, clear coat safe, superfine, liquid pre-wax cleaner/glaze with high filling characteristics to clean, remove minor swirl marks and renew paint prior to waxing. It removes oxidized pigment, minor acid rain marks, fine scratches and faint swirl marks. Formulated with a rich blend of paint glossifiers to provide a deep, wet look show car finish. Apply a small amount to a soft, 100% cotton flannel cloth, foam or terry cloth/microfiber covered foam applicator pad. Work into the paint using moderate pressure in a linear motion, until all that remains is a slight haze, then buff off with a soft, 100% cotton flannel/microfiber buffing cloth. May also be used as a carrier for P21S Multi-Surface Finish Restorer Polish to remove more stubborn scratches/swirls. Does not contain silicone and is formulated to work on all colors and clear coat paints. Use at least once or twice a year to refresh the paint and follow immediately with a coat of quality wax. Our favorite glaze to remove minor swirl marks. "

Less than $25 bucks a bottle and it'll last for several years.

Most auto paint/body repair supply stores carries it. Otherwise online.


Get all mine from a local body repair supply store.
