    Excellent work as always. Unfortunately the post-diablo lambos don’t really do anything for me.


    Pick your poison.

    Nice work as always!

    I notice you list clay mitts- curious what your opinion is on mitts vs raw clay?

    Thanks all!

    Clay mitts have there place. They are faster and if you drop them it's no big deal, unlike clay. I still believe actual clay does a better job. I have 'mitted' vehicles before and noticed that they still were contaminated and followed up with a clay bar...surprised what came off with the clay! So sometimes I will do both!

    @NastyGT500

    Looks amazing as always. Do you find black cars more difficult or time consuming or is it all the same to you at this point?

    Thanks D1984, that is what I shoot for!

    Hudson, Thank you! Black shows defects so much more easily than other colors, I find black/dark vehicles actually easier to work on! You can see your progress much better I think...
