    2008 Viper SRT-10 Coupe First Wax: Wolfgang and Souveran Tag-Team

    Well, picked up my new 2008 Viper Coupe in GTS BLUE, on February 4th, and I've washed it several times since then, but thought I'd post pics after the Wolfgang Sealant and Souveran application. Saleen and the dealer did a good job of not putting swirl marks in the car, but not so great with wetsanding/buffing. This is pretty much non-existant in some spots, and I'm toying with the idea of doing this, but not sure that I want to go that far with the car yet.

    On to the process:
    Cleaned the wheels, tires, and wheel wells, then proceeded to get the Schmitt and grit guard out.



    I haven't had much luck with my Guzzler, so I've reverted back to my chamois, which I thought put swirl marks on the M3, but that hasn't been the case with the Viper after 6 times of drying the car.

    I then proceeded to apply the Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant, and the car sat overnight to let this cure. I applied the Souveran about 3 days later after a quick rinse, and wiped the windows down with OTC glass cleaner and microfiber towels. Here are some shots of the car in various stages.

    To achieve excellence, excellence cannot be rushed. Technique is just as important as the product used.
    While my approach takes more time, the results are far superior.

    Very nice! It's the first one I have seen in blue. I think I'm going to put Souveran Paste over Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant on my Red 02 Viper ACR after I polish it. I have been waiting for my Flex polisher to come in so I can test it out. Hopefully it will ship out this Friday.

    Gary, I've been happy before on the Wolfgang/Souveran combination with the M3, and we'll see how it holds up on this car. Are you considering purchasing a 08, or are you planning to stick with the Z06 for now? I really haven't had any issues with this car, and have already put 850 miles on it since Feb 4th. She definitely won't be a garage queen . From a couple of the Gen 2 Vipers I've seen, I think they had much better factory paint finish than the 08. I'm starting to think more and more than Saleen didn't wetsand the body panels on my car

    I think that is a great color and the WG and Souveran combo gave it a nice boost! Very good job!

    I'll probably end up getting a new Viper. I won't be selling my Z06 though. I have been thinking about selling my Lamborghini Gallardo. I love the car but the Lambo dealers in Florida really suck and can't do anything right. I have to take it to Orlando or Miami and it's a real hassle especially when you have to take it back 3 times for them to fix simple things right. I have not had a chance to drive an 08 Viper yet. So what do you think of it?

    That is one sexy car. What chamois were you using aside from the guzzler?

    I will make you a trade, life time supply of products for the Lambo! Heck I will even run over and detail the Z06 once a month! What do you say Gary, feeling generous!?
    With all of those toys in your garage you wont even know it is gone!
