    2015 Looking Good

    My daughter was home from college for Christmas and I detailed her car (my car since I paid for it) before she went back. Last summer I did a ceramic finish on it, and yesterday I put a new top coat of Si02 spray from Blackfire Magic. Car looks great with a smooth wax like finish.
