2005 Lotus Elise- Paint Correction

I just recently completed a paint correction on a 2005 Lotus Elise. The car is not only a daily driver, but used as a weekend track car as well. Judging by the condition of the car and especially the wheels I don't think the car has been washed ever, not even after track days to get rid of the brake dust. Here is just a quick summary of what was used and done. If you have any questions feel free to post them or contact me.

Products-
CG Maxi Suds
Meguiars APC and Super Degreaser
Optimum No Rinse
CG Bug and Tar Remover
CG citrus wash
gilmour foam gun
Sonax Wheel Cleaner
mothers back to black
CG black on black
303 Aerospace protectant
tons of different brushes for interior and exterior
lexol leather conditioner
4" and 5"Meguiars DA MF pads and polish,
4" and 5" Surbuf pads with M205
LC Black Pad
LC Blue Pad
Blackfire Wet Diamond Sealant
Optimum Spray Wax
Tuf Shine tire Clear and poorboys wheel sealant

Before and after pics. Never seems to fail, when it's time for outside pics it is eaither raining or the sun is going down. All 300+ pics can be seen at http://s48.photobucket.com/albums/f2...ise/?start=all

Nice work. Did you use anything on the black front grill to try to darken the black plastic?
