How do those compare the HIDs that come standard in the Scat Pack?

Not sure it had LEDs when I got it.

Not sure the life on those but it would flicker on the head lights and had one had one side go out so I got new sets for both and Anti Flicker Resistor Decoders*for head/fog lights.

The fog I thought that went out worked with the Anti Flicker Resistor Decoders*but I went ahead and but the new ones.

Also went with some fan less ones if I have any iss I'll probably try the HID.

Past 2 days actually. Washed, clay barred, ceramic coated. She’s shiny as hell and smooth as glass.

Hello Cominfromcamaro,
VallejoNative45 here. Long story short, I have driven family vans/SUV's for last 20+ years and was lucky enough to purchased a used 2010 challenger and honestly I have only heard of the use of clay and a few youtube videos....my question is how easy/hard is it to use for a newbie such as myself and other than perhaps time to do it, was it worth the price of admission. My paint, while not too terrible, looks like its 9 years old (water spots, swirls and scratches, etc) and would really like to bring it back the best I can....5 kids and I am the only bread winner in the house and tying to make it on a budget...again sorry for the "basics" question, but I have rediscovered my love for cars all over again.....

Hey sir,

It’s actually quite easy to be honest. It’s not “expensive” but I still paid like $400. Now that $400 included a dual action polisher, pads, microfiber cloths, cleaners for the pads, special car wash and a special IPA spray before ceramic, compound, polish, clay bar kit and of course the ceramic coating. The ceramic was about $120 for 2 bottles which is enough to do my wife’s car as well.

As far as steps, i just washed it with the special wash. Clay bar, which is easy...you just use a lubricating spray and run a bar of clay over the area over the entire car, this removes dirt from the clear coat. Then you compound and polish which is easy with the Dual action polisher, but time consuming. The ceramic though is very easy, comes with a little applicator sponge and cloths. You put a few drops on the sponge and just put it on the paint, one small section at a time using a cross cross pattern, wait a minute then Buff it off with a microfiber cloth. It helps protect paint, makes it look always shiny and best of all it repels dirt so it’s easier to wash.

4 hours to wash and clay bar. 4 hours to polish and fix small areas (my car was new and you’ll probably more time with your swirls you mentioned) and 6 hours to ceramic. But it’s guaranteed to last for 2 years on what i used.

I drove my car to work today for the first time to Newport. About a 30 mile one-way drive. Before this car I had an Acura RSX so the difference was so incredible it was insane. Came home and gave it a quick wax. 😎
