I was approached by this customer after a garage incident at his condominium. The management was stupid enough to use his car to sustain a couple of cardboard boxes and obviously the bottom of the boxes had dirt. Upon removal of the boxes by management they induced bad marring on the trunk and along the rear passenger side rocker panel.

So here we are now and I suggested that the customer just go for a spot correction for the affected areas, a winter prep and leave a full correction for the spring.

First off this car is beautiful. I just love colour of the vehicle and choice of wheels for this beast. Audi + classy wheels are always a win in my book. In this particular case the owner chose Klass KF400 wheels. I am so very glad that he did.

One last thing due to my busy schedule as well as his I accommodated the customer by detailing it overnight and just for fun he made things even more interesting by bringing along his brothers C350 for a quick wash and wax before I had to tackle his car. I also had a 335i booked for the next morning. It was a fun 17 hours of detailing. :applause2:

Lets move on to the detail.

Ok so I apologize for not getting the defects on the passenger side rocker panel but I am sure you can tell from the trunk that there was significant marring.

Yes the car is a little bit on the dirty side but that's what we're here for.





























































AFTERS

I wanted to make sure I had enough time to look after the defects so I ONR'd the affected areas and proceeded to polish them up nicely before moving onto the winter prep for the rest of the vehicle.









The interior was given a much needed a good vacuum, conditioned and protected. I would have liked to have spent more time on the edges of the mats but time was a factor.

Thanks for looking guys.

Total time worked: 8 hours.

As usual - Outstanding work! As usual, you and your work get all the
that I can muster!

In the before shots I thought you were crazy with your praise for those wheels / After shots showed you knew what was under there. They are some beauties when they are clean and polished.

:thumbsup: Glad to see you back: I've missed being amazed at your work!

Hey Nikon!!!

Great to hear from you. I do apologize for not posting here more often. To be honest I just simply forgot. I don't know how I could have forgotten you guys. Although there are few in this particular detailing section the quality of people particularly yourself is very much appreciated. I'll get a few more posts up.

How are things with you?

btw quick question does your forum name equate to an interest in photography? if so I am looking for a affordable lens for sharp vehicle shots. I've been provided recommendations of 35mm 1.8 and 50mm 1.4. There are obvious price differences but in your experience which one is better that's if you are a photographer ;)

A couple of quick questions: What brand / model of camera are you using? Once I know what you're shooting with I can do a little research and make a recommendation on what might work best for you.

Thinks are going great down here - I just wish I lived closer to Toronto - I'd really love to get my RSX detailed by you and your talents!

Let me know your camera and I'll get back to you.

I am sure there is a good detailer down in Chicago.

The camera is a Nikon D40. I was looking at a 35mm 1.8 or 50mm 1.4mm.

Hey you're always welcome to travel up here to Toronto and I'll look after you ;) you're not that far away. I always have friends playing softball tourneys in Chicago in the summer :p

You are confusing me with Kevin (TireMeltingRSX) as he lives in Chicago. I'm in suburban Philadelphia - so it's a good haul to get up to Toronto :(

Let me look up the data on the sensor in the D40 and I'll get back with you.

Philly isn't that far from Toronto :) You could make the trek up. I think you need a quality vacation in the great white north. Put your feet up and go snowboarding :wavey:

Thanks for looking up the info John. I think I may settle on either the 35 1.8 or the 50 and 1.4. Both are reasonably priced.
