RCE2WIN: shaved, waxed, and polished

I shaved the trunk last weekend but didn't have time to get any pics. Weather was beautiful this weekend so i took a few hours and cleaned her up good. Plastic polished the headlights, tail lights, fogs, and backup lights. Meguiar's cleaner wax after a wash with a soft cotton mitt and some Mother's carwash. Finished the rims off with a Mother's Powerball and some metal polish. I wasn't real crazy about the powerball when i first got it, but i have the technique down now and it saves a ton of time. Tire dressing was the finishing touch.
I really love the depth of the Onyx Green color. A coat of wax really brings it out. I'm thinking of adding another coat of Niteshades to the rear. I also have a new piece of CF to replace the back license plate trim. Pics came out pretty well. The lighting is a little different, as i took them early this morning.
These are also the first pics i have posted since i Niteshaded the amber section of the headlights.

Exhaust is aftermarket, Magnaflow. S/S muffler i got on Ebay for $35 shipped
and a Magnaflow tip from Summit. I have a different tip, just haven't put it on yet. The one on there looks OK from the back, but i don't like how you can see the piping before it. I should get that on before it gets too cold and nasty here in MI.

Sounds much better going down the road. I'm just having a hard time finding someone to sit in the trunk and run the camera as i drive.

I removed the OEM muffler and resonator from the rear, and replaced them both with just the 1 Magnaflow muffler.
