OCDetailing Detailed: Part 1 Demolished '04 Maxima

Hey everyone,

This was a detail for a close friend. He's not a car guy and the car definitely says that about him. The car has seldom if ever washed and never detailed over the last 5 years. To say the least the maxima was trashed and neglected and then some. If you're my friend reading this I mean it in the nicest way lol.

I will try to take you through as many steps as possible but when taking pictures I tried to focus on many before and afters as well as 50/50 to show the difference.

I apologize in advance for the amount of pictures. This ended up being a 4 day job. I have broken up posts in 4 parts Part 1 for Befores, Part 2 for Durings, Part 3 for Interior and Part 4 for Afters.

Hope you enjoy,
