997 driver, who did your car? Absolutely the best detail I've ever seen on this site, and I'm the picky one. Unreal. You can't do any better.

In addition to great paint and detail the lighting helps a great deal....

I don't think that is mere detailing you're seeing, if it's not a digitally enhanced pic.

Looks to me like the car got the showcar treatment: i.e. colorsanding to remove all orangepeel and leave the clearcoat smooth as glass.

I did that for the Boxster S I used to have.

These are all very very flattering comments I detailed my car myself the night before the show. The picture isn't digitally enhanced either, it was jsut taken with a regular point and shoot digital camera. The specific procedure I took with that detail as well as every detail before any show consists of my sponsor's products, Meguiar's. I basically just washed it with the NXT car wash, then buffed it with step 1 paint cleaner, and then step 2 polish and finished it off with the NXT liquid wax. The entire front end is covered with a clear bra, and I never put wax on the film, however I spray it with Plexus Plastic Cleaner and wipe it down. Then when I get to the venue, I spray the car down with Meguiar's quick detailer.

Here's mine. I think everyone likes everyone elses cars, but they tend to like their own the best.

I see that as a good thing.
