Here are the before and afters of the rear fenders. The rear bumper was in pretty good shape, so I won't post before and afters on those.

Up next: The wheels. I picked just a few of the best before and afters. The wheels are in pretty good shape, but a little cleaning made a difference. I used one of those Mother's brand wheel cleaning foam ball things. After a little practice it's pretty easy. Just have to get used to the correct pressure as it can easily walk away on you.

Thanks!

I did a little photo shoot at night a few weeks back. Here are a couple of my favorite shots.

And one shot as I was leaving Cars and Coffee this weekend. Anyone else in the Twin Cities area attend Cars and Coffee regularly? Or even periodically?

Also, there were two Porsche 918s at C&C, but only one MX-3. Just sayin'. :wink:

These cars are getting super rare, so no doubt you had the only one there! I love the look of your MX-3, so shiny!! 8) I'll have to buff the crap out of mine soon, I want that shine! :P I'd bet people are amazed when you say the car is 23 years old too :P I know whenever someone asks me about my car it's always "What car is that? What year is it?...Wow really?!" haha, makes my day every time :P
