Nice job... but is that dirt or shadows that I spot on some of the wheels?

Dirt. The wheels are dirty. Ran out of Wheel Cleaner.

Orbital Buffer for Application and Removal with a Microfiber Cloth. Used Turtle Wax actually. Was on sale I figured I would try it out.

I'm not so sure. I plan on building for Rallycross racing. I don't think a drop would be appropriate :-)

Came out great for being Turtle Wax, they're products really aren't as bad as people make them out to be. Not professional by far but they do a nice job. :)

Looking good!

Only thing that I don't like is the blue Mopar sticker on the drivers side of the wing. It looks out of place. Especially on such a clean car. If you really wanted it to stay, silver would look much better (and match the wheels).

Hmm I'm guessing thats good :-). You would never guess the car has been rear ended and had a trash can scrape the Passenger side.

Yeah I know but it really does save some time!

I had never used it before so I'm happy with the outcome.

Thanks Cam. I'm nowhere near a professional when it comes to waxing my car. In fact this was my first time using an Orbital Buffer

That Blue Mopar Logo seems to grab a lot of attention, some good, some bad. I'm the one who put it on there. I like it but the Wing needs to be repainted and it will likely come off at that point. I might do something else involving the Mopar Logo at that time.

Its among my favorite too. Came out kinda crooked, but I still like it.

I'm not quite that bad but I like to wash my car at least once every week or two and I am due for a claybar next time around. I looove white SRT's. Such a nice color on these cars.
