www.autopia.org has great information on how to detail your car that includes how-to's, product reviews, and other detailed write-ups similar to, if not more in-depth, than the ones I post.

Your work looks great, good job for sticking with it and getting that little extra out of the finish...

Nice tires by the way!

Wow, that really is sick! How much would it cost a detailer to do that? Maybe not even as far as you went, but say 80% of that?

Prices vary between different detailers. I've seen people charge $80/man hour and spend 50 hours on a car. I've also seen someone on the opposite end of the spectrum that charged $85 for a 14 hour detail. It all depends on the target customers, experience/credibility, and marketing ability.
