@Zibby, Let me think of something. I must have something that I have that I can use to make a spoiler.

@Gautam What scale is the SLR??

@FiFan, LOVE that viper!

@Cyrus ...Umm..thats true for me now-I had to fight at your age for my thousands of hobbies :-)
I dont know why Indian parents inhibit their child's hobby,opposite that of the West (offtopic).

A little
Any idea on how to keep these beauties away from dust?
I have a glass cabinet with doors but within a week of cleaning, I see a layer of dust on them again

True in my case, to my mom most of them are gifted (few really are), others at discounted price (over 40%) and rest are worth few hundred bucks. , But you can't hide facts with your wife, they are a clever breed.

I bought a can of Formula One Wax couple of weeks back for my cars - by nature i am lazy and didn't get time to use it properly.

i was playing with the GTR and the Mustang (both black) and found that the gloss has become dull - dust and finger prints - tried cotton to clean it but didn't work that well.

Opened the can and applied a small amount on the cars and walllah! the result was mind blowing. the black shine is awesome.

Again feeling lazy - need time to apply the F1 wax on the Panda, M5 and the Silvia RC
