...bit of a glare on that last one, but it's like looking into a mirror.

Great job! Very reflective! I use a clay bar by hand and it's a pain in the ass. What applicator do you use for it?

BTW - does anyone else have a kind of light haze across the rear bumper. Mine almost looks like it had been repainted, but I bought it new. I figure I can probably work it out with mequire's 1-2-3 posish process, but man, that was a pain in the butt saturday, hate to have to do more of it.

No, sorry, it's more toward the center and mostly above the license plate. I don't have a picutre of that, and frankly, I don't think it would really show up in a picture. It's barely noticable in person, but I noticed it and it annoys me.

side note - now that it's all clean and beautiful, you can really see the rock chips and couple of scratches i've picked up. Luckily, they don't show up in the pics :biggrin: The front bumper must have at least a thousand chips from the very tiny to like 1/16"...and it's only a year old!
