That is the best camera I got for now lol. Im poor lol. Im thinking of getting a digital video camera that also takes pictures sooner or later some day. I have taken a lot of pictures with that crappy camera in the past of things done to my car, these pic’s may show up every once in a while, I know I know Im sorry. At least you can sort of recognize whats in the pictures lol.

It is fast & happens to look good too.

dirt & dust = weight. Less dirt & dust = less weight. Less weight = better power to weight ratio. better power to weight ratio = faster.
Polished = less wind resistance. less wind resistance = faster also.
So of course it is faster it is just plain physics

Actually I got board & started polishing some stuff a little bit here & a little bit there, few weeks went by where I did not do any polishing then started polishing something else, few weeks went by where I did not do any polishing again, got board & started polishing stuff up a little bit here & there before I knew it my engine was all shiny.

Nice job! Wish I had the patience to buff something up like that. I usually get about 1/3 of the way into it and quit. Ends up looking like *** with a couple of bright spots and the rest scratched and grungy. Well done!

Glad you said it was DIY or you could have started a whole new MSM bashing session!!!
