- Tires were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash and washed down
- Wheel wells were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash
- Wash down and rinsed
- Door jambs were cleaned up
- Clayed
- Dried
- Paint inspected and measured
- Wheel Wells were cleaned and dressed
- Tires dressed
- Masking
- 2 Step Paint correction (Menzerna Super Intensive Polish with an Uber Green and Menzerna PO85RD with an Uber Blue)
- Inspection with Fenix, 3m Sun Gun, Infratech, and natural sunlight
- Last Step - Menzerna Power Lock

That shot of the passenger door looks like the car is made of chrome. That's amazing work.

Very Nice job!

"How dare that owner not take care of that car before it got that bad."

My bad, I can't read...

O well, it looks even better than brand new.
I've always wanted to work in a detailer(s) shop. You guys hiring?

damn.
Can you pm me how much all this job actually costs? I always wanted to get an idea of how much a professional detail would go.
I usually do my own detail, almost same process. But lately ive been lazy, and New England weather and road conditions dont help out either.

I'd be interested in the guy's name from New England too. Is he in the Boston area by chance? Would you mind PM'ing me that info as well?

Excellent work on the GTR, as usual.

Subaru has better paint IMO. The Nissan's is as bad as my Mitsu. A guy at work has the bronzy pewter color GTR and it's got all kinds of paint issues from swirling, to chips, to flat spots.
