A extension tube that fits between the lens and the camera body to achieve a much shorter focusing distance.
cheers... not to hijack your great work... but do you just stick it on the camera then take the pic?!? from what distance from the paintwork?!?

cheers

No worries at all

Yup just take a picture as usual, but you need to take it with a strong light source reflecting towards it as it will be dark since you are very near to the paint. Distance is approximately 1-3cm away.

Amazing work on such a "real" car, if you understand what I mean. It's not all Ferrari's!
I love the detailed pictures of everything.

Fantastic.

amazing, nothing else to say really
any reason for using G1 on the front and back screen rather than the wolfs glass guard? more resistant to wiper use i assume..

Thanks Kev! Yup that's exactly it, coatings on windows that don't see wipers last much longer, even Rain X will easily last a few years for me. Just trying to be cost-effective by using a cheaper product on the side windows.

An excellent result, really impressive photos of the process.

Can you tell us how long this took in total?
