took about 3 hours to clay the whole thing and than waxit, but it was worth it. Car is unbelievably smooth and shiny.

Those are OEM Midirs (99% sure-no Volvo center caps, it's throwing me off a bit) - most commonly came on the C30s. They are hot as is his car! Can't wait to give mine a full detail!

Pretty sure they're not Midir. Close style though. :)

Looking good, either way. :D

Yeah, I was second guessing myself after I posted. They look close!

Those are 17" aluminum wheels that my friend originally bought 5 years ago, not sure the name but I had them refinished 2 years ago(painted in black , and front shaved and clear coated)
And the roof is my second attempt to apply black vinyl my self and I keep messing up the ends where that canal is at the side ends of the roof.

I like the roof, I'm definitely going to do that now! (been tossing the idea around for a few months)

And as already stated, those are not Midirs. They look good though!

^^ sorry, just skimmed the post first and didn't see how many people pointed that out. It's all good, I took a triple take at the first pic before I realized they weren't Midirs as well. I think their shape is identical besides the Midirs have a raised surface over each spoke.

Bought it on eBay for $50 but I'm not too happy with it. It's not high gloss as I wanted it. I'm gonna redo it as soon as wether gets hotter as its easier to work with vinyl and I'll buy it somewhere locally where I can see the quality first
