Default Take A Look.(pic intensive)

Just figured I'd toss some pics ups. I have been contemplating hiring some proffesional detailers to try and get these ugly scratches out. But instead I decided to just use some elbow grease and save $400-$500 and do it my self so...

I really have to thank these guys, they worked great.


Before: I had these down both sides of the boat.


After: Sexy
