gearbox + turtle wax = hot car

I finally had a chance to wax on this nice night using turtle wax ultra gloss. By far the best shine compared to meguiar's mirror/nxt and KIT waxes. Its night time but man it still sparkles. One of the only reasons I still like my car. Onto the pics...

Platium Series Ultra Gloss liquid or the paste? I used ultra gloss liquid on my car, but I dont think it was as glossy as your car and what you did looks great.

Nice and clean. Silver is generally harder to wax and make glossy. You've obviously did a great job.
