In your case the culprit may not be the film - you have a BLACK vehicle with hell lot of black surface area. You're sitting inside a moving oven.

right steer,

you are now officially scaring me stupid!!

just kidding - i didn't realise abu had a black safari as well!! i agree that any dark colour, why just black - is hell to keep cool; but a well maintained, gleaming, highly polished and sleekly moving piece of black machinery is a very very heady sight!

there is a sense of mystery and an aura around whatever car it is. case in point is that MOST world leaders cruise around silently almost exclusively in black automobiles!!!

"i make no aspersions or claims to being one of the said world leaders!!"

cheers!

steer and black sound synonymous taking a look at the gallery, i am yet to recover from the sight of the jaguar.. looks like it's only a matter of time that the landmaster gets a new coat of color, no points for guessing the new color though i think.. comment well accepted!

overdose,

congrats on your ride dude and i completely believe you when you say it's tough to keep it scratch free. i'm paranoid as of now and have sworn to keep it pristine as long as i can - i look to samurai san for tips to keep her looking gleaming and new!

what do you do to keep her scratch free though?

cheers dude.

Samurai San specializes in White GVs these days, black beauties are a thing of the past for him!

yeah man - this is what the 2.2 has on it now. the ex has a chrome strip through the centre, since i've got the "poor cousin" version - mine is all 'handsome grey' as they like to call it!!

it's surprisingly good quality and is pretty innova 'ish like as of now...

thanks for the compliment though... she was freshly washed and waxed for this stint!!!!
