    Its basically paint. You can buy it in a rattle can or by the gallon for a spray gun.

    Yo mike, you're in WC? I'm going to be down there at Oakes detailing getting my ceramic finish put on. I'm from Pottstown/phoenixville. We should link up sometime. Do you have a good tuner down there? Was looking at Phoenix performance up here since its so close, gonna do the 650hp kit

    Re: Murdered 2011 Sedan FInished

    I'm in Bucks County...Not too far from New Hope. Phoenix performance is good. They are the only guys I'd use to align my cars. My buddy who races swears by them. As for tuners in this area, there are a lot of good ones. I use ECS over in Creamridge NJ. They only work on LSx cars. I have not done any engine mods to my V yet other than an Air Raid CAI but ECS has done work on my 08 Corvette. After 4 years, I'm still happy with their work and Doug tuned the heck out of my 08. I highly recommend ECS.

    I actually am finally 100% done with my blackening. I sprayed the rear valance matte back over the weekend. Unfortunately it has been raining and I have been working ever since. I hope to get it washed and pictures taken this weekend.

    Now I think I'm done... 20% tint on all windows except windshield, blacked out fog light surrounds, blacked out rear valance, 20% tint on all rear markers and tail lights. 20% tint on front and rear caddy emblems. Lower front valance blackened as well.

    Re: Murdered 2011 Sedan FInished

    Thanks. The finish is Rejex. I used a clay bar then 3 step polishing with a RA followed be 3 coats of Rejex.

    While I like Rejex, I'm going back to Zaino. Since I have used both, here are my Pro's and Con's for each:

    Rejex Pros:
    Easy to apply. Do not have to put on super thin.
    Much cheaper. I got 2 16 oz bottles for 19.99
    Easy to remove
    Easy to find online

    Rejex Cons:
    Surface is not as buttery smooth as Zaino
    Does not repel insects as well as Zaino
    Must wait 12 hours between coats.

    Zaino Pros:
    Buttery smooth surface
    Nothing sticks to this.
    Less work to remove than a traditional wax.

    Zaino Cons:
    Can be costly if you use multiple products (ZFX, Z5, Z2 etc.)
    Must be put on VERY thin or is an issue to get off.
    Must wait at least 12 hours between coats (6 if you use ZFX)
    Takes more time to remove than Rejex.
    Need to buy from a local distributor or from the Zaino store (SOL if you live in New Jeresy. You cannot order from the Zaino store.)

    Mike, looks AWESOME now that you got it tinted. Zaino rocks, hard to beat on black. Most other stuff looks greasy. The whole Zaino system ALWAYS get me compliments on my black V and I use it on customers cars and they freak out when they pick up there black rides all Zainoed up. UNREAL products. And while I am at it Leather in a bottle is down right addicting.........

    Leather in a bottle ? I'm looking for a good leather product for my V. If that is what the product you're talking about is. This is my only regret with my purchase of the last month the exterior is the try Tri coat tint red , which I love and will be trying the Zaino, and the interior is that light gray color, looks nice but is being a bitch to to keep clean. I have the seats all wrapped up with towels now until my seat covers come in. I wish the interior was darker. anyways any recommendations on leather treatment andcleaner would be appreciated.

    No way. I won't pass inspection with tinted headlights and while I typically don't drive at night, I know it is more dangerous with tinted lights. Some people got on me about the tinted tails but with the LED's they are still VERY bright.
