    The Never Ending Quest........

    .........for the deep shine. Threw a coat of Black Fire Crystal Sealer on the other day, wiped off the pollen today, and then some detailer. Quite satisfied with the results.

    Beautiful finish, Norm. Do you apply the Blackfire over the clear wrap or only on surfaces that are "exposed paint"?

    Looks great Norm (as always). It wasn't supposed to rain here today so I took my spotless Stingray to the golf course. We were almost done with the round when it sprinkled just enough to make the car ugly. Then the wind came up and blew around buds and blossoms which stuck very nicely to the wet car. Gee, I wonder what I'm going to do tomorrow.

    The last time I washed Caroline was last fall. It rained here today, and I took her out in it. I think she is cleaner tonight than she was yesterday.

    I really need to wash her within the next two weeks, or so.

    Hehehe... Yeah, it's true. I am not the type of owner who washes a car regularly. Caroline gets it on a more regular basis than the others, but still...

    Norm, lets drop the phrase "it's as smooth as glass" and replace it with "it's as smooth as Norms C7 Masterpiece Z06" I'm sure that the phrase will catch on throughout the Corvette community! Are you sure that you don't want to be a technical advisor for the General at their new paint facility at Bowling Green, KY
