    Skipped The Dealer Prep-(Update w/Pics)

    I`m not a photographer, so be kind

    Used the BOSS cannon,Surface Wash, and Polygloss. Due to the FK1000p, I had a hard time getting the wash and Gloss to even stick to the car.

    Thanks for the kind words. I can’t take much credit, no correction was needed from the factory.

    The paint takes on different hues depending on the light. The flake is really visible in sunlight.

    Thanks. I used Griots Surface wash, then their Polygloss. Deionized rinse, leaf-blower dry.

    IPhone 7? Wow, you must`ve gone through at least one battery change in the time you`ve had it
    Treat it like it`s the only one in the world.

    Nope, original battery. No charging issues...yet. When it gets to the point of not holding a charge, I`ll get a new one.

    I really only use it for phone calls, a camera and checking the weather.

    Older- Man, I can`t get over it...this car is basically *exactly* what I`d have ordered if I were buying a Charger. It`s downright freaky to me...

    You have my sympathy regarding that eggcrate grille, I just know how it`d, uhm...affect...me.

    Thanks. Re: Eggcrate- I would wager that I will never get into treating each little cell individually.

    Bet if you go find a good Charger Forum, they have already figured out which process works the best for cleaning that grill..
