Top notch work! Having detailed several black S2000s myself I can certainly say the paint on them is very soft. But this one was in TERRIBLE shape and those exhaust tips were unbelievable.

I could, but by the time I'm done importing them I don't think there would be much profit. It's probably not worth the effort.

Thanks Matt! That makes me feel much better. I was mainly concerned because pictures I had seen of the bottle said "PO85RD" on the back side of the bottle. Maybe they changed the label.
