NXT is "meh" and doesn't last that long. Next time you're buying wax, grab the Gold Class and enjoy the results.

I buffed the headlights with meguiers plastic polish. They are arctually pretty clear when you are physically near the car.

I've enjoyed NXT. The 1.0 use to last the 2.0 formula does not but then I wax it ever 3 months or so. The car is parked out side in direct sunlight at work and I like a fresh coat to protect it.

the factory header 01+ header is. that is why I swapped it.
I'm upset at the night photos. I turned the down the resolution on the camera and it came out grainy. I"m going going to up the photosize and change shutter speed.

lower the iso speed and put the camera on a tripod, while using the timer shutter, you'll get less grain.

other wise good shots.
