I wanted to share some pics of my most recent detail.

I applied a coat of NXT on Thursday, then another one Friday afternoon. Saturday afternoon I topped it off with Pinnacle Souveran (carnuba wax). :thumbsup:

THIS WAS ON WEDNESDAY AFTER MEG'S QD:


SATURDAY NIGHT:

I just purchased some NXT, but I haven't worked with it yet. Thanks for sharing. Who could ever get tired of looking at a very SHINY 350Z? It looks like you did a fabulous job! I'd say it was definitely a labor of love!

:clap:

Very nice Blu! I washed mine at my friends yesterday only for it to rain its a$$ off on the way home. So I had to re-dry it in my garage.

Doesn't it seem to always rain after you wash your car?
I did all my detailing this weekend in my garage while it was pouring.

I would be careful to dry off the car after you drive it out in the rain because you might be wiping off dirt on your paint.

awesome shine man
i like your mirror too  :biggrin:

Thanks.....I'm loving NXT right now, it even made the tail lights shine. :thumbsup:

It did make a difference that I topped it off with carnuba wax though.

Here's what she looks like with just NXT three weeks ago. The carnuba gives it an additional depth in the paint. :thumbsup:

Jinxx, I find that it does make a difference as far the shine or depth if you allow it to cure for at least 24 hours. I let the first coat sit overnight then applied the second one. :thumbsup:

juanjo thanks, the topper is Pinnacle Souveran go here

Pinnacle is good on dark paints, reds, blues and blacks. If your car is silver or another light colour it will not make much of a difference. Also it only lasts about 4 weeks. If your car is a lighter colour then there are other topers/waxers which will look better.

Thanks Pat, I wish she was looking like that right now. I had to drive her in the rain and a little bit of snow last week. Unfortunately with my schedule and the weather I haven't been able to clean her up. I was ashamed to take her to our club meeting last night because of her condition. She's usually the cleanest Z there so everyone notices when she's dirty.

NourZ, personally I prefer to use NXT over any other products out there right now that includes Zaino. As you can see NXT topped off with Pinnacle brings out depht in the paint IMO. I have tried Zaino but couldn't get the same effect, plus it's cheaper. I'm not really worried about the durability since I wax three sometimes four times a month anyway. however, during these winter months it seems to be holding off pretty well.
