Re: Finally got a chance to clean (Oceans60R)

Awesome looking R Oceans60R! I just did mine this weekend too, but I had a customer car yesterday a 07 Mazda RX-8 which was horrible inside and out, here are the end results (not hijacking at all, and the R is in the background <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> )<p><IMG SRC="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/puredrive07/Rx_8021.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/puredrive07/Rx_8022.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/puredrive07/Rx_8016.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/puredrive07/Rx_8017.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: (DriftyMcDrift)

you can do the trim pieces a couple different ways:<p>- do them yourself (this is the route I'm gonna go)<p>-buy them painted (check MSP)<p>-have them painted professionally <p>Oceans: nice lookin R. check your Pms<br>

Nice work on the Mazda, but seriously, the R is a beautiful car, I sometimes forget how lucky we are to own these things. Nice detail jobs guys, keep it up.
