Yea 1_XLR has an infra red V and I have platinum which I think is equally nice, but I don't like the black.

I have an Infrared, I guess I've posted enough pictures by now:rolleyes

I really like black, but won't own one because of the upkeep. One thing I was really disappointed though was how much the orange peel shows on the black V. I've seen a crimson that was sanded and clear coated and what an increadible difference. Considering doing mine, has anyone here done this?

Mike,
This is what I have been looking for, a way to make the paint look deeper, but why would you have to sand it, if it's new. (wait i get it, we are sanding the clear) How about a few coats of clear and sanded each time. I think it would show up good on your car, but wonder if I would be wasting money on platinum.

right, they block sand just the clear coat to get it smooth, then apply several coats of clear to give it a really deep rich look. Even though it's new, it dosen't have a $75K+ finish IMO. Probably most effective on darker colors, but it will help the platinum too.

Who would you take your car to for that kind of treatment and how much would it cost. (about) I would think your's would really look great.
