@Kevin, here are the photos. I think this is the first time I will post a photo of my SG5.


From afar, there isn't that much difference versus the previous:


Before but on South Head and is a bit dusty.




After and off-street. This is after heavy rain, though, but it has at least 2 layers of wax.




The swirls are gone. The paint correction is evident on a closer scale.

@Red XS, I am to look for good-branded clear vinyl films as the ones we have here are the ones that are relatively cheap. Cheers.

WoW! Great reflection. Initially I wondered why you took a pic of a garden!

Haha. Thanks. The black colour really needs a lot of care and maintenance.

I had a black car once. Only once - they really look awesome for the first few minutes after being properly cleaned. Yours looks really good, especially with the SH alloys.

Thanks. I was to go with BE/BH Outback alloys but I had a good deal on the 5th SH alloy from a parts supplier in the South Island.

Default Wheel studs

Bought my 20011 Forester a couple of weeks ago and was taking the wheels off to paint...well...someone didn't know how to hand thread no less than three lug nuts and cross threaded them and decided to use an impact wrench to put them on...I got them off with the remaining wheel stud also...not a hard job but fiddly and annoying. All done and dusted now.
