Meguiar's Introduces All-New Specialty White Wax and Black Wax

Meguiar’s Newest Waxes Deliver a Shine and Polish
Perfect for Light or Dark Paints

According to the 2011 DuPont Automotive Color Popularity Report, white, grey and black cars account for 70 percent of the vehicles on the road today.  Knowing this, Meguiar’s, the worldwide leader in car care, has developed two innovative new products, White Wax and Black Wax, each designed to tackle specific problems facing light and dark paints and maximize the brilliance and gloss results consumers crave.

With owners of white and light colored cars in mind, using revolutionary Super Micro Abrasives Technology (SMAT), Meguiar’s® createdWhite Wax to deep clean surfaces and bring out the brilliance in their paint. By safely removing dirt and grime from the surface, this new wax leaves behind a layer of quality paint protection, filled with carnauba and polymers for long lasting care. Consumers will immediately see gleaming results, as White Wax restores a fresher look to their vehicle’s surface.

Owners of dark-to-black colored vehicles will love Meguiar’s Black Wax, which creates an exceptional gloss and polished look. With no dyes or colorants added to the formula, this wax cleans, polishes and protects the paint, giving owners the “wet” look only darker cars can achieve.

To use each product, simply dispense a small amount onto a foam applicator and apply to the surface of your car. Then wipe it dry with a microfiber or terry cloth towel. Both White Wax and Black Wax packages come complete with a double sided applicator to ensure consumers can get the look they want.

Available now at major retailers and auto enthusiast/specialty retailers nationwide in a 7 oz. tube in a paste form, White Wax and Black Wax are backed by Meguiar’s industry-leading care technology and performance guarantee.

Platinum Motorsports Shows off a Matte Grey Carbon Fiber Range Rover

Everyone's favorite Armenian car customizers released photos of one of their latest projects... the "newly redesigned" 2013 Range Rover. But what Platinum Motorsports did was dip the Range in Matte Grey PAINT, Carbon fiber the grille kit, and a red cross stitch trimmed interior. I'm sure you know that the picture above is the "before" shot. Now let's see the after shots...

P.S. Platinum Motorsports doesn't wrap their cars... See.

But the best thing that Platinum Motorsport has done... is hired Jake Janisse. I have no idea who he is or what he looks like, but the way he captures the customization process and the post-customization is great. Just cause everyone has a camera phone that has 8+ megapixels and instagram, doesn't mean they know what composition means.

Instagram Shot of the Day

Mar 13, 2013

Today's shot of the day comes from MC Customs out of Miami. Although there are no cars in the photo, but technically, I'm still on topic because the owner of a customization shop is in the photo.

You know I'll find a way to get Robinson Cano on here. But in case you didn't appreciate my moment, my second favorite pic comes from Rockstarr Motorsports...

And you know I love a blacked out vehicle, even though that body kit is a little horrendous. Body kits and X5s...

Well.... You can follow the following pages on Instagram: MC Customs @MCCustomsMiami, Robinson Cano @RobinsonCano, Rockstarr Motorsports @RockstarrMotorsports, and of course Bernie @CarShowBernie.

Cars and Coffee: The Platinum Motorsport Edition

Of course, this video came out when I was on hiatus, but I have to show it off. Around the US, they have the same type of event that occurs the first Sunday of every month. On that particular Sunday, people wake up super early, and meet up in a parking lot and drink coffee- BUT you have to have a great car to fully experience it. The California version, is the Irvine Cars and Coffee, and everyone's favorite brotherly duo and their friends decided to partake in it. You get to see Lambos, Rolls Royces, Audis, BMWs, even to the army green Ferrari 458 that PM customized.

P.S. Just be glad I'm not from Boston, cause I would have messed the title up. Instead of Cars and Coffee, it would be Caaahhhs and Coughee. But since I'm from LI, it's more like Cars and Coughee. But how aesthetically pleasing the end product of this video- the shots, the scoring of the music, editing, everything, that's what won me over. 

Forgiato Wheels Shows off another Maserati

... but this one isn't a widebodied, and it's a Gran Turismo. Anyway, Forgiato Wheels released more photos of another Maserati. This White Gran Turismo is sitting on their new GTR-ECL wheels finished with a brushed center and a chrome lip... 22s in the front and 24s in the back.

These wheels look great. I want some... but they wouldn't look right on a truck. 

Ultimate Auto Shows off a Ford Super Duty truck

Personally, I'm not a fan of pickup trucks. But, it's not about me. Orlando's finest, Ultimate Auto, released shots of a Ford Super Duty. According to UA, they added an 8" Fabtech lift with Dirt Logic shocks. 22" Fuel wheels and 37" Falken tires make good use of the extra clearence. They also added an Escort 9500ci radar/detector/ laser diffuser system and a custom vehicle wouldn't be anything without sound. To round out the customizations, UA added a JL audio sound system.

Instagram Shot of the Day...

Mar 12, 2013

So today's Instagram shot of the day is courtesy of Asanti Wheels. Below is a shot of the DA173 wheel. The design itself is referred to as 173, but prefix is something different. 

Asanti has three prefixes when it comes to this wheel. The AF prefix refers to their standard series. CX refers to their concave series, and the DA *points up* refers to their deep axis series. The 173 is available in sizes 19, 20, 21, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, and 32s.

Branded Customs creates a Chrome Dodge Challenger

... And the chrome trend continues. Garland's favorite, Branded Customs, released photos of a Dodge Challenger that's completely chromed out.  Aside from the body of the car, I also see some deeeeeeep lipped Asanti wheels and Oracle lights, smoked out taillights and I believe that's an Asanti grille as well. 

P.S. Another photography tip, avoid photographing outside when the sun is overhead. That's typically around 1-4 pm. You avoid sun spots. But if you have to photograph, angle the subject to where the sun can be used as a fill light to fill in shadows. Yes you'll have to move the car a few times, but moving a car is much easier than spending hours, sitting in front of a computer on Photoshop. Follow this tip, ESPECIALLY with a chrome car. Sorry, I've just photographed a couple photos in my life. Just a couple... million.
