I did some research and asking around before and never really found anyone good around here. There was one guy who lives in Rochester that comes up here but it was like an extra $100 travel charge or something. I ended up buying a PC and all the gear and doing it myself. It turned out great...check out my post....

Sure, I love extra cash. PM me and let me know what you're thinking.
I still have lots of Jetseal and Nattys Blue left. I'm gonna slap both my ride in the next few weeks here too.

Bump...

I need some ideas on this too. Parked by a damn sprinkler and have quite a few hard water marks that washing won't take of.

I tried it last spring and I have to say it wasn't really worth it. The results were ok, but there were some bug marks on the hood that didn't get removed along with a few little marks around the interior that I asked them to redo before I took the car out. The car was in for some other work at the same time and they said the detail was done before the techs worked on it, and that caused the marks. Fair enough I guess, but I would have thought a final check over before handing back to the customer might have been in order!

Just curious, how much was that? Is their auto spa just a complete car detail?

If anyone wants to get their car polished on the cheap let me know. I'm new to detailing and I'm still perfecting my skills but I'm getting better....

I think it was around $225 for complete interior and exterior detail. You can check their website for a complete list of what they do...

Blacjack23, I could possibly be interested in availing of your services. What kind of number are you thinking
