- Call it a dirt magnet

- Claim the deathly heat from its super sun-ray attracting abilities

- Claim it's only a neutral color

- Think of it as a sign of death...

... I don't give 2 sh!ts, when its at the top of its game, ain't nothin' beating it :yelpleased:

And hells yeah, spring.is.here :myhappydance:

AND before anyone asks, it was all using Meguriars products (Wash, Clay, Polish, Gold Wax and Hot reemz and strangely, a wheel cleaner that leaves a matte finish and NOT wet / shine / bling)

Nice. I washed and waxed mine last weekend and managed to keep it looking that good for 3 whole days, then it rained and I forgot to put it in the garage. Gotta do it again this weekend 'cause when it's good, it's reeaallly good. Nothing turns heads like a freshly waxed black mustang. I use Meguiar's inside and out on mine too.

Hi,

Hell yeah, you are 100% right....
By the way I also use Maguiar´s products. It takes a lot of time (mine is all black) but the result is just amazing.

The only thing is I just need to drive for a day and I could start it all over again.....

Get something in the background reflecting off the paint. Bright colored things are great. Look, a dandelion!

The black paint is actually made of tiny black holes that absorb light completely. Then the black holes are clear coated to make them shiny!

My car is actually made of smoke and mirrors.

Looks great! I've had two black cars and you're right, when they are freshly clean, there's nothing like it.

Haha, I can hear his voice in my head saying it! Have you seen the guy who does his voice? Doesn't look like it would come from him!

I agree. No color looks better than black when clean.

Here is another picture with the house in the background, the larger picture is a crystal clear, mirror reflection of my house!

Like glass Daryle... like glass.

Thanks Snackmaster. Took over 8 hours of blood, sweat and tears and was completely worth it. I can't think of one single aesthetic modification that would've make as significant an impact as doing a total detail job. The clearer the paint and coat, the more refined the sun refractions are, almost pinpoints compared to large glaring globs. Like you said, glass my man ;)

By the way, I didn't take before pictures but you can see the pictures in my gallery. That's my car after it was dealer detailed. I'm also attaching a picture of the car covered in wax. The best part is peeling off the wax a section at a time. Like going from a cocoon to a butterfly!!
