As many of you already know, I just got a Flex from my awesome wife for Father's Day. What better vehicle to try out my newest weapon in my arsenal than hers? We bought it used from a private seller in January. With black paint with metal flake, scratches, etching from bug guts and bird bombs and of course your typical swirls, this was going to be fun!

What on earth did they set on the trunk and continued to drag across it?

Thanks! There are a (now) few minor scratches that I didn't get out. From reading another thread this morning it sounds to me like I need to try backing off the speed of the white pad with FMP to 4 and try that. I wish I saw that thread before, but oh well. I need to do minor correction on my 350Z soon, so I will try it then.

Thanks all!

 

Paul, you know Dylan has the thumbs up copyrighted right? I had no choice to but to do something different. Don't want to get accused of copyright infringement!

 

Ron and Anthony, you're too kind!

 

Steve, they are literally next to each other.

 

Chris, it was AMAZING!
