My car's name is Selene, I've had her since November 2015. As of 2/24/2017 she has 137,056 miles on the odometer. She gets about 31 MPG city/highway combined.

Currently, I have her liquid wrapped in Raail AirWrap. The color is jet black and there's some diamond gold pearl from Alpha Pigments for a little pop in the sunlight.

I'll post some photos after I'm allowed to. I guess there's a forum rule set where you can't post photos until you've been a member for 7 days [emoji47]

Changed my first post to have the formatted requirements.

Looking forward to photos. You can thank spammers for the 7 day wait.

Looks good. The wrap really helped out the peeling clear coat. Those rims look good with the color combo too. Considering the back seat was a "trash can" it cleaned up real good.:rock: I still need to do a full interior clean, as I think the PO of mine worked out in a mud pit. As it was, I had to replace the rear seat back, as his dog chewed off the rear head rests. :O

Some cosmetic stuff I had done:

A lip spoiler:

And I had a huge dent in the right rear quarter panel fixed this past December, right before I got her dipped again:

A rust hole my dad and I "fixed" before dipping her. The dip keeps moisture out so with any luck I won't have to worry about any rust spread. We sanded and ground the rusted part down to bare metal, filled it, sprayed primer and then some black paint over it before we dipped the car.

(Don't worry, those hubcaps are long gone.)
