That's pretty good stuff. I just checked out the NSX. Wow...


p.s. If you're bored over on clubrsx, you can look up my pre-mini car. Same screenname.

i just peeked at the nsx and it looks really good, then i was forced to shut the browser when i saw "zomg".

we are currently working on our 89 cabrio and have been using the menzerna line on it... we haven't done our other cars yet, but menzerna is A W E S O M E... you would not believe how good it works. we are taking before and after shots and all that jazz... i'll have a thread up at some point in the near future................... near future...

anyhow, we got our stuff from autogeek.net... best website ever for car care stuff!

http://www.autogeek.net/menzerna-of-germany.html

we used to use meguiar's, but now after this we can't go back... there is a website that has really good writeups of the process (nick has been doing a ton of research on this over the past 5 months or so)... i'll ask him what it is and post it up...

i will say this. it takes forever. it took us the whole afternoon to do just the hood.... oh and besides the menzerna, we also clay bar first... (i think that goes without saying!). but once it was done it got rid of all the swirls, the oxidization, everything... it's so damn shiny you don't even notice the scratches in it. seriously. it's ridiculous. unfortunately the person who owned the car before us painted the front fenders flat black... soooo we need to get some new fenders....

Wow - the NSX cleanup was stellar (and a rockin' ride too).

My car needs some love...

Great work on that NSX! Looks really fantastic.

Hopefully my mini will be swirl free by the end of the summer... Thanks to showcardetailing.com and Cruzman! We gotta get together again dude!
