Nice work.

I guess you're an AutoSmart fan then. I love AS WAX too.

BMW Swirl Hiding Valet In Scarborough

Full valet + glaze

The customer wasn't sure about a correction or enhancement, so the days task was to hide as many swirls as possible.

Sorry but no pics of the wash stages.

Far side polished with blackhole by hand.

http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/mm122/seriouscars/Random%20Pics/2012-05-16095606.jpg

This worked well so proceeded around the car and topped with Megs 16 8-)

All done......... Then POW!!!! :evil:
Oh I do like to live beside the sea side. lol. :lol:

http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/mm122/seriouscars/Random%20Pics/2012-05-16112504.jpg

Re: VW Golf GTD Full Valet by Shine My Ride

Increased the gloss for sure there Chris.

I love turning up to jobs like this, but worry that the customer will not see a significant improvement.

I can on this one though. Top job.

1959 Buick @SpicAndSpanners #Scarborough

Rob, a friend of mine asked if I could give this old girl a once over and see if his white walls could be saved.

This will not be a very in depth write up, as to be fair the car was already in good order. Also sorry for the lack of before pics, the sun was high and the car is huge.

I moved the beast out of the shed and found a bit of shade.

http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/mm122/seriouscars/Robs%20Buick/28062010035.jpg

He also has another buick in mat black, but the list of things that need sorting on that is as long as the car. Shame really as it could look bad ass.

Rusty white walls

http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/mm122/seriouscars/Robs%20Buick/28062010029.jpg

cleaned with g101 and stiff brushes.
Here is one before rinsing.

http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/mm122/seriouscars/Robs%20Buick/28062010038.jpg

Car was rinsed at pressure washed with wool mitt and dried with Miracle drier. Waxed with AS WAX, chrome only had light water spotting so SRP was used on ALL of that. Interior was vac'd, dusted and the odd stain on the carpet was taken care of with g101.

Afters

Poor dealer prep. Merc B Class @SpicAndSpanners

This B Class was purchased a week or so before this valet by one of my long standing customers. He also paid for the Diamond Bright protection pack. :shock: Fair enough if the car was done correctly but as you will see by the pictures it wasn't.

Polish on plastics
Un-buffed polish on paint
Dirty seats were protected
Scratches on drivers wing
Dirty door shuts
And NO MATS!!!! So I ordered some from carmats4u

Nice eh?

I was supplied with the supergard kit but only used the interior protector and the paint sealant.

http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/mm122/seriouscars/valeting/2012-08-16134250.jpg

Wheels cleaned with AJ Brite wheels
Exteior cleaned with AJ APC ane Triple Cherry Shampoo
Seats Cleaned with AJ Carpet cleaner and extracted with water
Tyres dressed with AJ Long Life Tyre Dressing
I wasn't happy with the finish left by the supergard paint sealant so I topped this With Colly 915

Once washed there was some strange staining / fading

http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/mm122/seriouscars/valeting/2012-08-16095827.jpg

So I dressed it with Concept Vista.... 50/50

Re: Wax Mix

Thanks Adam

I don't think my home insurance will cover me if the worst happens. I may have to do this at the hotel kitchen with proper extraction units and fire blankets. lol. As a trained chef I have done my fair share of Flambé and know how to avoid it happening.

Thanks again.
