    Im not huge on pictures because so many alter them. I have some of the engine bay before and after and I will take some half and half and interior shots tomorrow. Its 45 degrees and Julia will be over soon so I am about done for today.

    I just did half the hood to see how I would like the new Opti-Compound and Poli-Seal. Decent combo with the UDM took out most of the spider webbing but hell the thing is 11 years old the paints in rough shape.

    Ok I snapped one picture quick and I suck at taking photos.

    Washed with dawn
    Clayed with blue clay magic
    Opti Compound with UDM green LC CCM pad speed 6
    Poli Seal with with UDM white LC CCM pad speed 6 finished speed 3
    Nattys blue on top.

    I wish everything was as easy as the hood.

    This guy buys repos and resells them. I only charged him $300 for this one for full detail 2 step including engine bay. Advised all going forward will be minimum $350 so hopefully he has something for me weekly or at least bi-weekly. An extra $600 a month for the summer would sure be nice for working two days a month.

    I don't think altered pictures have been a problem here. Anyway, half and half shots are pretty hard to fake.

    Sounds like a good amount of money to me, especially from a single customer. Just the two step made a huge difference.
