Fresh Wax

Got my Porter Cable out, removed all the swirls, and tossed a coat of wax on the car. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Amazes me how bad a dealership can screw up the paint on a brand new car. Their lot boy musta washed mine with a scouring pad, it was horrible looking. Got it out in the sun, before it disappeared behind the clouds, not a swirl to be found. So I backed er back into the garage, where it'll sit till the rain goes away.
