Your detail jobs always look amazing to me. Very nice work. It's amazing to me how good that paint looks after being polished out.

What a waste of time,12 hrs for a claybar and paint correction,wow.. really sucks you took all the protection off the headlights and left it with nothing to protect it,they will look the same in a month..

If its such a great detail wheres the engine pics what about the inside,the door jambs,how about close ups of the inside of the rims ,did you use any actual machines on the car other then a rotory..

Dont call it a detail when you only did a car wash or paint correction..

Style...I see you comment on a lot of people's post and mostly in a negative way. I'm not sure why you feel that you have to act the way you do online. Being rude and a "know it all" will get you nowhere in life. If someone calling something a detail and you not agreeing gets you that wound up you may need to step back for a second and ask yourself what is really causing you to feel that way and why does it bother you so bad. You even mentioned a while back that you got banned from autogeek for acting the way you are right now and arguing over a "label" on a job someone did. When someone comes to me and wants a job done I do what they ask me to do and what they pay me to do. If they don't want seats cleaned, shampoo carpet, engine cleaned and wheels taken off then I don't do it. I'm not going to spend extra time on something I am not being paid for. On top of that I did all the work for a friend for $150 which included toll fees, pickup and delivery. He asked to clean up the headlights and I threw that in for free and told him if he wanted it to last it would need to be clearcoated but he didn't want to spend the extra money. They will not turn back to the way they were in 1 month. I have done many sets of headlights like that and they have not turned in the past 6 months.

You can keep posting to this topic but if you are going to be rude you won't get a reaction or reply from me. There was a day when I would have been defensive at a comment like the one you made but I am not the same man I once was and I thank God for that. It isn't worth it man...

Proverbs 17:27-28
He who has knowledge spares his words, and a man of understanding is of a calm spirit. Even a fool is counted wise when he holds his peace; when he shuts his lips, he is considered perceptive.

Dont get pissy with me cause you put 12 hrs into a 3hr paint correction and half assed the headlights it would have save you more time if you hit them with 800 and put two coats of clear as well..

If your not gonna do it right then dont bother..

I have a rav 4 that came in for detail and paint correction i charged 300 since its blk i also pdr four door dings and 25 on the hood for free i cleared the headlights and tinted the front windows as well we all do favors for friends but in the end all included i spent 4 hours on it,and i didnt fill in anything with silicones..

Detailing proces As follows,

Bring in car measure paint thickness

Vaccume

Use tornador blk on interior dash console an doors,headliner seatbelts and carpet last

Use steam water extractor on carpet

Use aerosol scented spray dressing on switches consol an ac vents

I am glad that over the years you have become the professional detailer that you are. You are a much faster and better "detailer" than I am. Give yourself a pat on the back. You deserve it!

I do the same things, but have it blessed before it goes back to the owner.

Forgot I took this one. This was removed from the top section of the rear bumper. I don't know the last time it had been washed. There was a lot tree sap on the top and hood and overspray on the passenger side. I clayed for about an hour and a half to remove it all before buffing. It is amazing how slick paint will be after removing contaminants that are stuck to it.
