    That picture is actually over exposed a bit, and causing the reflection to look washed out. I washed the car, clayed it, used paint cleaner, polish, cleaner wax, then used meguiars Color X to restore the color, then polished and waxed the car again. Took a long ass time, but it was worth it.

    Here's the before and after of the hood, which was the worst area. The dark blotch on the bottom left of the first pic is where it was still wet.



    It's my beater car and it has VTEK, therefore it's uber fast.

    No. In fact I liked it so much I've painter's taped the entire car on a permanent basis. No more rock chips!
