  • The Porn star experience (for the wheels)

    Hey guys,

    I gave my car what i call the porn star experience on the weekend and thought i would share...
    For the pros its probably not a big deal, but for the weekend warrior it was a massive job.

    Great effort ZR36.

    Thought you would try GFE first as a newbie but you got straight into the PSE instead.

    Really like the purple pie effect too btw.

            Try a gentle hand polish with something like HD polish, sf4000, megs 205 etc.

            No pressure, just small even circles.

              Big Difference after you went hard core and showed the wheels who's the boss hey.

              So GFE treatment first on your paintwork now ZR36?

              I did a 2007 Jetta on the weekend and went for the PSE right away. Paint code being LC9X, which could well be the same as yours as this colour is still a current VAG colour ( Deep Black Pearl ). If it is indeed same colour, how appropiate being 3 very important keywords in the genre of movies you appreciate.

                Nice outcome. I noticed that in the before and after photo one of the tyres is Dunlop and other photos are Doodyear. I assume the Dunlop one was the spare.

                I wish my wheels would turn out like that. Great job though.

                  So this is what 4 days of driving looks like.

                  The speed of dust build up is just incomprehensible!

                    I had the same problem with dust on my 2012 C250. Replaced the pads a couple of weeks ago with Akebono and I'm waiting to see the improvement.
