Looks great! Nothing better than a freshly waxed black vehicle.

not bad, I kept saying i was going to do this sunday, but my future wife had other plans.

maybe tuesday, shes supposed to be gone when i get home.
otherwise, Not bad looking. i know the feeling about keeping black cars clean, My dad used to have a Black Dodge Ram, he'd wash it everyday.

Looks good, new wheels set it off. DSG paint with the black bottom is impossible to keep clean too, unless I leave it in the shop after a wash. Gotta get me some wheels like that...

I'd get aluminum polish and get rid of the chrome polish. My friend didn't notice what he was using and pitted one of his CCW LM20's because that **** ate away at it. Had to be sent off and refinished

Meguiar's FTW

Not bad. I would have polished up those exhaust tips too. They just kinda jump out at me compared to the wheels.

I washed and waxed both of mine on Sunday. I DD my Ranger, and its already getting dirty. My Bronco is black, and I haven't driven it yet sense then, and it gets dirty just sitting there.
