    So those are just POLISHED Alcoa Forged SRT Wheels?

    What did you coat them afterwards?

    They look like American Racing torque thrust rims.

    I really like the white lettering on the tires. Looks good with the color setup you have.

    Beautiful R/T. Did you have a paint correction and polish done?

    Good day all,

    The wheels are Foose Legend F105's. 20 x 8.5, +7 offset. You can get Chrome Alcoa Replicas. I use Boyd Coddington Hot Rod polish. The best and I have tried them ALL!
    The Mopar letters are stickers. 8 for 50 bucks on eBay. Cleaned the tire with Brake Clean and glued on with the still on the car. Have everything ready to go because it's basically super glue.
    I do my own detailing (my side gig). Not bad for 116k miles aye? Send me a private message with your email and I will send you what I use with links. I actually just detailed a Hellcat Red-eye this week.

    Cheers!

    Yeah, bird crap is the absolute worst. It has to be removed right away. Here's my detail stuff. If the admins do not allow the links, message me your email address.

    Below are the links for the products I use. For the Meguiars stuff, Walmart (if you do not mind going there) is way cheaper. Once your car gets a few miles, make sure to Nanoskin it at least once a year. It's similar to clay bar, but 1/4 of the time. Here's link to that on my FB page: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.630672077004980.1073741883.350584265013764&type=3
    Link to an off brand Nanoskin mitt. 5 bucks-
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Premium-Ca...773831?hash=item3b265e2247:g:~IwAAOSwPYRcKb~k
    1) MoreShine for Tires. I used to use a rub on, but this stuff works great. If you want a matte shine, spray once, shiny, wait 10 minutes and spray again. Last for weeks! I do all 4 tires (no exaggeration) in 2 minutes.
    https://www.stonercarcare.com/products/product/91044CSTON01/stoner-car-care/cp_/all-products
    2) And no, I do not get a discount (See picture on the webpage) Wax-Evershine Wax http://www.evershinewax.com -This stuff is the BEST-hands down. Super easy to apply, takes off superficial bug splats and tar as you go. Even takes off spray paint!
    3) Detail Spray (in lieu of Evershine Detail spray)-Meguiar's 8 bucks at Wally's World.
    https://www.meguiars.com/automotive...r-light-paint-cleaning-enhanced-gloss-between
    a) Another great option here is Nanoskin smooth. 20 bucks for 1 gallon that mixes 1:1 for 2 gallons. I use it for glide and detail spray. https://www.amazon.com/Nanoskin-NA-...id=1520130557&sr=1-1&keywords=Nanoskin+smooth
    4) Plastic trim-Stoner Trim Shine. For the sides, around lights, wheel wells, plastic mud flaps, you name it. A TRUE spray and walk away product. Over spray comes right off paint. 6-7 bucks at the auto parts store, if you buy a case of 12 online, around $4.00 Great to split with someone.
    https://www.stonercarcare.com/produ...N01/stoner-car-care/cp_/all-products/exterior
    5) For polishing- A little spendy (25 - 30 bucks) for 3M Ultra Polish. Honestly, Meguiars would be a fine choice here also, for less, around 8 bucks. For a polisher I use a Black and Decker WP900. 30 bucks on Amazon. Super light and quiet and easy to use one-handed.
    a) 3M Ultrafine polish - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...hine polish&qid=1456161592&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1
    b) Meguirs Ultimate Polish- https://www.meguiars.com/automotive/products/meguiars-ultimate-polish-g19216-16-oz-liquid
    c) Black and Decker WP900 - http://www.amazon.com/Black-Decker-...161838&sr=8-1&keywords=black+and+decker+wp900
    d) Newly discovered 3D HD Speed- https://www.autogeek.net/3d-hd-speed.html
    Link to least expensive 32 oz-
    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/331875474473
    6) Chrome, aluminum, and stainless polish. Great rust remover too. Quick Glo Chrome Cleaner, 8 ounces. - Fine - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00A7FT1AS/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apa_i_.UjwDbRX6GAJV
    7) Interior-one VERY important thing to remember here. The interior is treated from the factory. If you use leather cleaners, etc., it will make your interior worse. I had someone just tonight ask what I used. I said soap and water. Here are some wipes I use for a quick wipe down of the dash, console, seats, and doors. Inexpensive and quick.

    Washing first time-
    1) Wash with Nanoskin mitt. Lots of soap. Feel the paint as you go. You can feel and hear as the contaminants come off. It should be smooth as butter with little effort.
    2) Spray tires with Stoner Tire shine and all plastic trim and wheel wells with Stoner Trim shine.
    3) Do a quick dry with a towel. Just water removal as polish is next.
    4) Use your buffer with HD 3D polish to polish entire car. Paint, windows, chrome, mirrors, basically everything you did not hit with Trim shine.
    5) Hand wax with Evershine wax.
    6) Stand back and admire your work!
    After washing or between washing.
    1) Clean behind wheels (if you want)
    2) Spray all 4 tires with tire shine.
    3) Stoner Trim shine all plastic and wheel wells.
    4) Evershine or Meguiars Ultimate detail the entire car. Make sure to get overspray off from around tires and trim.
    5) Meguiars Ultimate or Evershine detail the wheels.
    P.S. I only use microfibers on my car now. No California dusters, no squeegees, etc. Since doing this I maybe polish my car twice a year now.
