I posted this on the "other" site, so some of you who are on that site have seen these pics.

Well, I took out all the swirls with using the Porter Cable 7336sp Variable Speed buffer, Sonus DAS pads and Meguires Professional DACP.

The shots in order are:

1: Equipment
2: Before WITH swirls!!
3: After WITHOUT swirls!!
4: Money Shot 1
5: Money shot 2

Thanks man. Actually, wool is only for serious cutting, so I would stay away from the wool pads. I would use quality microfiber towels instead to wipe and buff your car. As long as you wash/wax and dry it properly, your swirls should stay away for a while.

your car is a sexy bitch, have you considered taking off or blacking out the chrome window trim?

how did you black out the amber side markers and do you have that little v8 emblem on both sides of your car..
You can get them painted to match the color of your car...looks really good in my opinion. The orange just sticks out.

The V8 symbols come off the G Wagon...you can get them at your dealer or on eBay. Gotta let 'em know what I got, ya heard!? haha [:)]

has anyone seen the V8 badges on the C pillar? I want to know how that would look.... The old 600SEL's had the V12 badges on the C pillar.

Yeah man, both sides. You can get them already painted at Performance Products I think or one of these sponsered links...
