So we hand polished, sealed, and waxed this 12' STI.





After a long weekend looking for a good buffer, I had to settle with a rotary...... Made me miss my DA

I didn't get too many 'action' pictures from the second session.





While the sealant was doing its job, I spotted the stock headlights and decided to work some magic.







Sleepers are the best!

At first I was wondering why it took 18 hours to do the car since I found Subaru paint to be really soft and then I saw the broken buffer lol. Sorry that happened, but the car looks great!

Well some of the paint isn't original. So much of it was very very hard and hard to get the swirls out.
