"Speed Weathering." LOL! I love it.

[* Either an intentional or accidental (?) play on "Speed Lettering," which is the label we Grande fans often give it]

Really good work and, FWIW, the manufacturer truly nailed this car too. I can't find ANY details they didn't get right.

I had another pic of a different road #…though it looked much the same..not overly weathered..
The door bars on mine could use more grime
