    Be careful detailing a fresh paint job. The clear needs some time to breathe and cure. Talk to the painter and ask what he recommends! Looks great though!

    Oh yea, just a gentle wash for the paint. Wanted to clean the wheels up a little more. And the tires need some dressing bad. They're new so they've never had anything on em.

    Also so need to take the tint off the back windows. I replaced the side windows cause they had scratches so I'm going to re tint the whole thing darker.

    Speaking of the new side windows. The new ones seem to be a little thicker and are really sloooww going up an down. I'm worried it's going to cause the motors to wear out. Any one know anything I can do about that? I guess I should make another thread about this...

    Looks great!

    Look at the window regulators see if the gears are binding up or how much lube are on them aswell. might even be the window regulator getting old.

    Probably just the motors getting old unless you can really hear them straining. Anyways, your car looks great!

    Thanks a lot guys! The window flew up and down until they replaced them. The drivers side has the auto let down, and it was working great before they replaced them. Now it stops about half way it's so tight.

    It's so factory fresh. Is that an OEM color?

    Well it's the oem deep forest green with some blue pearl mixed in. I told them to keep the color combo under lock and key! lol Thanks, yea I thought the painter did an awesome job. Some paint jobs you see just look like shit. It's about as close to perfect as an aftermarket job can be. :D

    Man, that color looks great, you should paint the calipers silver or black. Those bullitts really match that car really good too.
