That's a stunning Z. Great depth of shine on it.

I don't think you can beat a black car for glossy shine. Hard work sometimes though to keep them looking good.

Thanks alot for the comments. I'm no hardcore detailer but I do appreciate a clean and tidy car.

I always wanted a black car even though I know its a challenge to keep it looking good (infact its dirty in less than a week being my daily, so extra hard work). As you say the glossy shine is very rewarding on a dark car when done.

Thankyou. I have some light swirling to take care of in a couple of areas. Nothing major hopefully.

Nowhere near as bad as I was expecting. The first day it stood in the sun after a good clean I was expecting to see a surface of swirls but aside from two spots its not all that bad for a nissan (I was pre-warned about their paint).

Stone chips however, is another matter.lol

As you might have guessed I've not had the car too long. A couple of months nearly but its progressively getting more and more enjoyable to own.

Engine Bay after a simple two stage process of engine degreaser and vinyl/rubber care.

Just need to find a way of cleaning up the ally timing covers and throttle bodies that are a little furred up.

Very tidy
Love the look of the twin intake, never seen these engine bays, makes the want even more

Great job on a fine motor
Good to see another zed owner here.
Highly recommend www.350z-uk.com as they have a great 370z section giving great tips on issues such as the steering lock one.
