    Well it was back to the lake today!
    This ride is owned by the mother of the Denalli owner. Finally nice to do a car. I was starting to think that they only sell SUVs and trucks to my local natives!

    I was really worried about getting a nice look to silver. But I dug in, washed, polished and waxed.

    Hope you all enjoy.


    Meguiars NXT Car Wash
    Meguiars Clay Bar with Final Inspection
    Meguiars #80
    (EDGE 2000 Green Pad with G100(PC) set at #5)
    Meguiars #7 Pure Glaze
    (EDGE 2000 Blue Pad with G100 set at #4)
    Meguiars NXT Polish
    (EDGE 2000 White Pad With G100 set at #3)
    I allowed the NXT to sit on the car and in the sun for 2 hours while I did the interior. This was a HUGE plus. Came off so easy and really looke alot better to me.

    Thanks Scott.
    My business is really picking up. I'm doing about 4 full details per week along with about 10-12 wash/vacs. I'm noticing my self getting alot faster now. I started on this Lexus at 11:30am and finished at 3:30pm. I also did 4 wash and vacs from 8-11. Needless to say, I went home after the last car!

    I would like to thank you Scott along with everyone else on here.

    Justin

    looks awesome. The tires are alittle too shiny for my tastes. I only like the shiny look on low profile tires.

    She actually wanted them that way. As you all know, I like the matte finish. About 90% of my customers do to. But there are some that want a little "bling-bling" for their ride!

    Next time you do a car that is silver, you should give #21 the job.
    It brings out the flake, and give a nice warm glow in direct sun. And a wet look when in indirect light.

    It tops well with NXT paste, or S100 to really give it alot of depth.

    Glad to have helped you out but if your business it growing like it is, that is because of your hard work and attention to quality. :)

    Believe me, it becomes self-sustaining.
