This is my Detailed Special

Hey Group,

My names Jason and I'm originially from the 300M Club but seeing as how many of you guys visit over there I figured I'd drop by and say Hi to everyone. Here are a couple pics for you all to enjoy! Let me know what you guys think.


The Engine Bay














A side shot of my neighbors of the rear right door panel


Another shot...this was after a clay bar and wax/buff job!








The Interior






At the Shed Aquarium


Red L.E.D. Turn Signals


My Special with the Chicago SkyLine Background

I have seen this ride up close. It is one of the cleanest 300M's I have seen. The tail lights look sweet!

Also if anyone is ever going to Chicago, Jason is a sweet tour guide! When we were up there we missed our turn and pretty much got lost and Jason found us in about 2 minutes lol. I hope to make it to Chicago again and have Jason show me around.

Thanks for the kind words bro! And definetly u have to come out to the Chi again! Remember the Sears Tower? Are u telling them that story of when u guys missed the turn to Lower Wacker (where they filmed both Batman Begins & Dark Knight) well yeah guys they missed the turn and ended back on the freeway and I had asked them what was the last sign u passed and as soon as they responded I took off WOT and blew past them at about 120-130mph lol! That was fun! I remember Mike telling me the only reason he knew it was me was becuz of the Red L.E.D. turn signals I had on flashing so they could find me lol! Man....good memorys!!! Definetly come out to Chicago again I'd be more then Happy to take u guys out again! Hey imma be at Toms....hope to see you all there!

Wish I could make it to Toms but aint seeing it as I'm in the middle of changing jobs.

I am trying to make plans to come out again and see the town. Personal tour where I dont have to drive would be the best lol.

Man that paint looks like a mirrors! I love how you did the tails, by leaving the reverse light part clear. Good job...keep it up!

knowing that one way to get paint looking that good is to sand it down, paint, sand, paint, and then sand between each clear coat... getting finer on the sand paper each time of course...

so what did you do? how many coats of paint? how many clear coats?

looks spectacular by the way... just the way I want mine eventually...

Actually would you believe me if I told ya the car is a 2002 (6 years old) and my daily driver kept outside? Take a look:



Actually to be quite honest w/ya...I haven't done anything close to what u said lol! I just wash it....clay bar it...and liquid wax n buff it! Here are the products that I use:


For the clay barring and...


For the waxing! It takes me about 4hrs to detail the whole car by myself

Jason, your car is amazing. I have alot of respect for you and your car!

Maybe I will bring the trep down to the Chicago SkyLine area. Who knows I may not even bring the trep and just bring my moms vechile and get a hotel and jump in your car to tour

It was the flash of the camera. If I were to change the color of the cluster I would have to change ALL the interior lights to match as well....and seeing as how that would be a lot of work to change it all....I just deal w/the "green" look
