    Now a different combination on a 1995 T100 with a (mostly) single stage paint job (the sides of the bed were repainted and clearcoated). Rest of the paint is the original single stage factory paint.

    1Z Paint Polish to deep clean the paint (very little oxidation), Menzerna FP (Euro version) for more gloss and topped with Poorboy's EX-P Sealant. Notice what a very clear, dipped in salad oil look that combo gives!

    Here is a moderately abused 1997 Accord. The customer said not to knock myself out detailing it since they are giving it to their 16-year-old daughter who will probably wreck it....they just wanted it clean when they gave it to her. Paint was okay, some scratches, etc. Started off with Meguiars Swirl Free #82, then Clearkote's Vanilla Moose and finished with Poorboy's EX-P.

    Now for something completely different...a boat! I got a call Tuesday from my regular Wednesday morning customers telling me not to come in because one car was in the shop and the other two people were out. 30 minutes later, I get a call about detailing a boat. Such luck, eh? BTW, they liked the job I did on the boat, I am detailing their 2004 F-150 on Monday. ;)

    Meguiars #20 Polymer Sealant and #16 Pro Paste Wax. Sorry, no interior pics, I ran out of film.

    That's a 330i Performance Package judging solely from the wheels and the front spoiler. BMW did not make a 328 in 2003.

    I can do it, but you'd probably have to get a second mortgage on your house to afford what I would charge.

    As long as there is enough paint left to work, yes. Look on this page of my website at the before and after shots.

    Why? Why not? Some people just don't have time and even though their vehicles may be older, they still want them to look their best. The guy with the T100 also owns the ML320 in this thread. He got the car from his grandfather when he died and since it is still in great shape, he wants it to stay that way.

    The Accord is being given to the owner's daughter when she gets her license and he wanted it cleaned up for her.


    BTW, I am not that expensive.
