Went out and found a nice spot to take some pics the other evening right after I finished a thorough scrubdown and waxing. I spent about 5 hours on the interior and exterior, even waxed the door jambs, lol. [screwy] I used Turtle Wax Ice on every exterior surface except the windows, all the door seals, window trim, door handles, and the plastic hood cowl. Most of them had faded a little bit, but the ICE made all of them look new, it boggles my mind! Anyway onto the pics... [ffrocks]













After the ambient light from the sunset got a little better, I attempted a few hdr shots. I think most of them came out well!











Went a little overboard on this one...



Dont forget to vote in the Sedan Revolution October Ride of the Month thread! [cheers]

use the spot healing tool in photoshop to get rid of those dust bunnies, or use a larger aperature. good job on the hdr shots though

Looks awsome man. The rusty drum brakes are an eyesore though.
You need to sand off the rust and paint them black. It'd look so much better.
Also, noticed you have a ZTS without a spoiler....did you take it off?

Thanks for all the comments guys!

thenorm: HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, you achieve this by combining 5-7 exposures of the same scene and then tweaking the tone mapping in photoshop to your liking.

FocusStrider: I've got stock svt size tires on there, 215/45r17 mounted on 17x7" Monzas with a 45mm offset.

LoudFocus01: LOL Ssssshhhh... yea I know Ive been meaning to paint them for a few months now, just havent had enough time to get around to it. Also my ZTS came from the factory with no spoiler and no fog lights, dunno why... Maybe it was only for the 2000 models?

the older zts models, basically the 00-01 models, had a spoiler as an option. then later on, they made it into a standard option. and btw, is it an auto?
