Sweet, Klasse+Menzerna for the first time... pic inside

Here a Pic of Klasse AIO + Menzerna Intensive Polish + Menzerna Final Polish.

This is the first time i used the Porter Cable. The car is so wet looking now, the pic doesnt do the car justice. I need to get the Klasse SG now, im so impressed with Klasse now.

Please post your impressions of NXT if/when you do. NXT was mentioned here and I am really curious as to how well it works. It is much easier for me to get than what I have been using.

Yeah, but not all that many spots have new houses next to old houses with that particular garage design (two car garage with extra space on one side that is about the width of the door to get in) where the old house looks like the garage that was next to the lots where the new houses were built.

It's not the same street if I have the orientation right. I lived on Winona (so the alley is btw Winona and Foster) between Paulina and Ravenswood. So, it's just down the road . . . by a few miles.

I just used Eagle One Nano and the stuff looks great, no swirls, now the question is how long it will last.
