    hey guys didn't expect all the replies so fast!
    thanks for the compliments. i use Zymol wax. it shines up real nice. yes, its the original paint, too

    matt, what color did you use for touch up? where did you get it? i heard torreador red is an exact match, but haven't tryed it yet.

    I just got some mixed but it sat around for a year so it got all thick and shitty. is torreador red a ford color?

    Zymol never heard of it?

    I mean like our cars natrually the rear bumper looks so high comapred to the rest of the body, lowering the sides even more will make this visual apperance even more pronounced. get me now? nothing to do with the stance of the car.
