    Cleaned up the V

    Here are some pics I just took of my CTS-V. It is an 04 with 52k miles, one owner, well cared for (except for the swirls!) I bought the car about a month ago, and the swirls were awful. It looked to have had a long life of automatic car washes from the previous owner.

    Anyways, it is now swirl free! I spent the past 3 days after work on it with the DeWalt rotary and a bunch of Menzerna products. I found a cool place to take pics nearby too, so I decided to give it a try (Warning - I'm an awful photographer....)
