Well, i'll start by acknowledging that my pictures suck. need to work on improving that. But, Right before losing my job I had a friend come to me asking if i would be interested in detailing a car for a friend of his. I told him i would think on it and get back. I've been wanting to get back into detailing cars, one of the few jobs I actually enjoyed doing previously. so, the timing was pretty perfect. I gave him a cheap price, mainly just wanting to cover most of the cost of a new DA buffer. He accepted. 2002 Acura TL Type S. 113k on the clock. was in much better shape than i expected. Car was garage kept the first half of its life. there were only two spots of clear coat failure. and it was early failure. clear was still there, just faded badly. wouldnt buff out a lot. but, chose to just leave it instead of doing some wet sanding and fully exposing the paint. told him when it does spread/flake, then we can go over some options then. the hood and front bumper have both been repainted. the hood wasnt a great job. lots of sanding marks under the paint, and obvious spot of bondo in the center. cheap, hard paint too. had a nice scratch right in the center of the hood. a couple half and half shots of the polishing. these are mainly from the roof, being that it was by far the worst part. and heres the hood after buffing and polishing. the scratch is still visible if you know it was there and bent down close enough to look for it. but, from standing height it wasnt visible. after shot of the roof: outside of the car after finished. interior before: after: it wasnt terrible inside the car. apparently, he had kept it completely kid free until about a year or two ago. so minimal wear on the back seat area. so i cleaned it up, shampooed the carpet (despite my footprints visible in the photo) and cleaned/conditioned the leather. so, first step back into detailing, and i know i missed some things, so it was a good refresher. also tried a couple new products that i will be trashing before doing another car. the tire shine i had was terrible. thick gel that would spray, or spread well at all. just kind of sat there not making the tires look much different. also, anybody know anything about posting pictures here from flickr? i tried all of the links that they offer in the share image box but none of the embedded the pictures. had to copy/past it, then copy the actual link from that, then delete the rest and then put that link into the image box on here. annoying ass process. might just have to find another site to host on.
