The paint still sheets pretty well considering the harsh washing methods today:
1) Nox-Wax solvent
2) Wolf's Chemicals DeIronizer
3) AutoGlym Intensive Tar Remover
4) Bilt-Hamber Autofoam + Turtle Wax Big Orange + sheepskin mitt

The CarPro CQuartz was put 15 months ago, and I have sprayed few coats of CarPro ReLoad on it during this time. Also the Bilt-Hamber Finis Wax was put on it 7 months ago. But still, the sheeting amazed me!

And here are more red things!

I was full of the greyness the whole car was, so...:hihihi:
The color is Anodized Red (powdercoated) and it looks truly amazing. Now I've have them a week installed in the car and couldn't be more happy. Will post pics of the whole car as well.
