don't forget to 'elevate' before driving off (unless it's automatic air charging)! i can see a whole bunch of people wanting their car to be that low while driving.... v nice!

are you rubbing back to basecoat then relaquering or just polishing? only wondering because my black sdi has a clear over 2k base, and if you're polishing, i'm curious what grit/compound you were using without going through the laquer...? i already messed up one panel being a bit too enthusiastic with a hard compound- resprayed it.

It wasn’t done by me but by a friend I can ask he did a bit of wet sanding on some panels
