Nebster's detailing thread

LET ME START BY SAYING THIS:

i am not trying to advertise anything here. I am solely posting showing my OCD and my hobby that i do on the weekends and in my free time.

Well i figured i'd stop jacking other peoples threads and put everything about what i do as my hobby

Any questions - just ask. I'm very easy to get along with (i hope) and would be glad to answer any questions.

here is my set up:



Products i use typically in my detail:
- TO BE UPDATED






feb 20th weekend - Mustang GT - white with vinyl stripes
feb 28th weekend - OUT OF TOWN - TAX TIME BABY!!!
march 6th weekend - Subaru WRX - silver
March 13th weekend - seth - 328xi - black
March 20th weekend - [b]Open[/B[
March 27th weekend - ultimate - car?
April 3rd weekend - NONE - CHI TOWN MEET!!!








i'll start with what i worked on this weekend - my personal 335i.

to be frank, my car took a beating this winter. Too many dealer washes. First off never have your dealer wash your car. they almost always put swirls in the paint so i suggest to avoid where possible

I apologize for the pictures. i can't find my damn tripod

i don't have many before pictures as my camera was dead and i was charging the battery

but here is what i have







this was literally all over the car. To be frank (this is sad) - my 335i was one of the worse cars i've worked on. I just don't have time to dedicate to my car and this winter was horrible on it.

after





that is dust not rids











i'll have more pictures tomorrow.

cg / swissvax for cleaning stuff
swissvax for wheels - tire dressing, wheel polish, wax, cleaner etc...
interior is all swissvax
blackfire for paint correction
cg for sealant and swissvax for wax.

hell the only reason i charge what i do for details is that the damn products are so expensive. The wax i'm using tomorrow is one of the last jars of the swissvax best of show - only 275 a bottle lol
