Still need to get something to take some of the clearcoat scratchs out.

(I had my camera set on the wrong white-balance, so the photos have a blue-ish tint to them.)

very clean vic you got there! try a rubbing compound to get those clear coat scratches out, just read the directions and do a little research if your gonna use a high speed buffer... don't want to make it look worse or ruin any paint!
