    The Taco was definitely in need of a good clean up. They have been working on our road and it was really dirty. Hard to tell from the side pic, but the sides were just as dirty as the front and rear pics. Washed, clayed, polished & waxed - 5 hours later this is what ya get.

    Did you buff by hand? How's the ultimate polish? I just picked some up and I'm planning to use it tomorrow.
