Looks lovely in red under the lights, very nice example. Did you machine polish it /correct the paint?

I'm detailing my Silver SS as we speak, will hopefully post some pics later in the week when done!

I removed most scratches with the Meguiar's G100 + Ultimate Compound but not all, since the car is parked outside anyway.
