i have got to say,

this is probably the cleanest looking 350Z on the street! Its even cleaner now that you have detailed this beauty!

Love your write ups, always have a lot of pictures. A picture is work a thousand words right?



btw, what does orange peeling mean?



is it that fuzzy reflection?
