Tanners cool, haha. Though if your talking about the little white specs, just ash/dust. Easily wiped off.

Metallman, thanks! And no not yet havent had a chance to yet. But still plan on it!

When I first got it I wasn't a big fan of the color and I get a lot of people more or less make fun of my "purple" car. But after a clay, cut, polish, and like a dozen coats of wax it looked amazing. But now with rust and damage its getting replaced.

only thing that's changed on the outside in 7yrs is the sticker on the windshield is gone, the headlight covers are on a shelf in the garage and the vent visors are gone since i broke one fixing the tape..

judging by the shininess of the paint on the wheels it looks like this was not long after i painted them

Hey I am new to this forum and new owner of a GA. I got my 99 GA gt a few weeks ago. Waxed the car today and it ended up raining later in the evening for about 2 minutes where I live so I got some rain beading shots as well. My dad wanted me to get his vette in the reflection and background on a few shots as well.

Welcome, vette looks good, so does your car. Black always has a dazzling shine. But gets dirty very fast. I clean mine everyday.
