    Thank you!
    That is very kind.

    I have been a dedicated fan of Sprayway Glass cleaner for many many years.
    To get me to switch is a big deal. I like it. No streaking and very little wiping.

    I wish dark colors were really as easy as you make it look. Very nicely done.

    It`s not that easy. Perfecting black paint is harder than it looks.
    Although, when done,...IMHO nothing looks better than black.
    * I will admit black is the most high maintenance color there is.

    Thank you!
    That is very kind.

    The paint was not bad. Good (not A+) but better than many I`ve done.
    If you are wanting to add this one to your stable then I`d say go for it!

    Did you like the video?
    Did you watch it to the end?
    Did you watch it in 1080p with audio?
    Did you like the soundtrack?

    I watched the vid in 1080, the music reminded me of Mannheim Steamroller from days gone by. It was well done.

    I`m getting a bit bored with the 360 walk-around look. I`ve been doing the same style vid on an my vehicles.
    I have an "old" iPhone 6 POS that I do the vids with. I`m waiting for the iPhone 12 to come out before upgrading.
    I`ve do use a gimbal to help with the "shakes" when I do the walk-around. It makes a huge difference.

    Thank you!

    Merlin:
    For cleaning glass with CarPro`s Clarity glass cleaner, are you using their window cleaning/wiping microfiber clothes as well?? And are you spraying this cleaner on the cloth or directly on the window itself?
    I ask because it seems that window cleaning is the bane or Achilles` Heel for many Autopian detailers to get right and perfect. The application technique as well as the manufacturer and type of window cleaning-specific microfiber used makes a HUGE difference to whether you have perfectly clean windows with no streaks or a less-than-perfect window that the customer sees that seriously detracts from an otherwise exceptional detail.

    I see that you use Scholl`s Concepts Shock 2 Extreme Compound and Megs new M210 Mirror Glaze Ultra-Pro Finishing Polish as your 1-2 combo on (almost) EVERY detail you`ve posted recently. Not going to question that; it is just an observational comment. It works and the results speak (show) for themselves. Quite honestly, Scholl`s Concepts get very little attention in this forum, but I do see a few high-end detailers using some of the pads and products here-and-there.
    i think that Sky Is the Limit Detailing Supply is the main dealer/distributor in the USA, which may explain some of the limited notoriety: it is just not that well know by everyone.

    I think Sizzle Chest is drooling at this particular Lexus, as this model is a new fixation/obsession for a vehicle to add to his stable.

    As usual, a superb other-worldly detail of this Lexus. It seems like you and black vehicles are made for each other (another observational comment; no intent at slighting or prejudice of other colored cars. I am in trouble, again, am I not. You know, Captain Obvious, you have a very unusual "talent" in that you can fit BOTH of your feet in your mouth at the same time.. just sayin`..)
