suggestion on detailing shop see pictures!

Hi,

So this is really starting to annoy me. I took some pics of my car's hood and passenger door on parts that really stand out to me... when i bought it from the dealer originally said they were going to detail the car and they stand by saying that they did but they are willing to do it again for me but I'm thinking results will be the same...

I would like to detail the whole car but wondering if these things will come out... some scratches are a bit deep and I'm willing to get the touch up paint but never been to good at applying it. take a look and let me know your suggestions!

Kevin has been taken care of my own and my buddy's cars since 2007 when he first got into the business. Many OG members here can vouch for his great work as well.

Kevin. He does awesome work. Check his website out. His work speaks for itself and the price is worth it. There are detailers out there charging the same as him and even more and do a terrible job. Pay for it once and get it done right!
He has worked on both my cars and have seen first hand the quality work he does

Highly recommend Kevin.
Price is dependent on the work required on your vehicle - if it needs more work, it will be more expensive.
Kevin has some minimum standards for his work; for example he won't do a crap job for cheaper.

+1 to Kevin. If you want to remove those marks invest in his full restore package. He will wash it, clay bar it, wash again, 3 stage polish, then 2 stage sealant. Best money you can spend to make your car look new again.

some of those will not come out, don't fool yourself, mike or kevin or whomever will let you know before you attempt anything. don't expect miracles but a lot of things can be corrected on the paint without painting. hopefully the news is good for you.

Kevin seems to be the 'go-to' guy for detailing in the GTA according to these forums, but his location is way to inconvenient for me.

I've heard some good reviews on Wes at Orion Detailing. His shop is close to my office, so would be easy to drop the car there for a few hours with minimal inconvenience. Anyone have experience with him?
