What did you use to clean them up?
The JDMs on my legacy are getting a little hazed over and could use a nice polish.
I used wet sandpaper starting from 600 grit (and alot of it. There was ALOT of paint there!), then just stepped it up once I saw clear. After that, I used my orbital(important tidbit there. If you use a random orbit, you will be there for hours.) Buffer and a decent wool pad on a somewhat high speed and polished until crystal clear.
Also, out of curiosity, is your insurance more than it would be for a normal legacy? Does the steering wheel being on the wrong side jack the rates?
I got a quote from my ins company, and they said that it would cost an additional $12 to insure the car. Didn't even ask any specifics of the car. It also helps (i guess) that I have the no coverage cheapest insurance company in Texas that charges me $86 for a sheet of paper saying that I'm insured.
