And a pic of my car, I just got these OEM RX8 wheels painted last week(forgot to pick up the center caps from the painter, they are mailing them to me) and new tires (Hankook V12's, 235/40/18's) mounted on them Monday.



Thanks for looking!

Thanks Mike!

I #83 has never really done me wrong, only a handful of times that I had to go to another product (IP, Diamond Cut). Once I'm done with the gallon that I have (maybe 1/4 is left) I'm definately gonna expand to some other products that I hear so much about (M105, M205, UC, etc)

Nice work Dave, that was some nasty exhaust. By chance have you tried Optimum's quick detailer concentrate, it comes in a 32oz bottle like ONR but it makes a gallon. I hear its a better QD than ONR.

Like the Black MS3, almost makes me miss mine. Im actually thinking of selling my daily driver and getting another 08/09 White MS3. I hate driving a slow car in the winter.

105 and 205 are awesome, so is D300 - #85 is the bees knees for heavier diminishing abrasives for the longest time and I still think goes right up there with heavier cut stuff(especially diminishing packages). The 80 series line is still right up there.. GREAT stuff.

I have not looked into it, but I definitely will the next time I order supplies, which should be soon.

I LOVE my MS3, even in the winter she's a blast to drive, though I can see some rust starting to surface in the rear wheel wells (will be addressed later this summer)

Can't wait to give M105/205 a try in person later this summer! I'll probably still always keep some #83 on hand, just not in the gallon size like I do now.

Nice job man. I like the RX8 wheels too. Makes me miss my 08.5 CWP Speed 3 even more!

Weird exhaust tip trick. Take a sponge and some soda wipe it on and let it sit for maybe 10-15 minutes then use a pad on it. The acid in the soda tends to loosen up the carbon.
