Car I detailed Thursday (4/22) ^_^

Dirty Car.... When I got there, I was like man... If I owned this, It would first be in my living room

The car that I washed was a, 2003 Lotus Esprit V8

From Yahoo! Auto section,
Quote:
The 2003 Esprit V8 is a 2-door, 2-passenger sports car, available in one trim only, the Coupe. The 2003 Esprit V8's closest competitors include the Acura NSX, the Maserati Coupe, and the Porsche 911 Targa.

Upon introduction, the Esprit V8 is equipped with a standard 3.5-liter, V8, 350-horsepower, turbo engine that achieves 15-mpg in the city and 22-mpg on the highway. A 5-speed manual transmission with overdrive is standard.

The 2003 Esprit V8 is freshened for 2003.
Here she is when I got there...











Ok... First... When I got there I was soo happy that I was getting the chance to detail a lotus... I asked the owner if could possibly get a ride. , "If you do an amazing job, I will give you a drive" That was one of the reasons I tried so hard to clean it.... The other reason was, IT WAS SOOO DIRTY, AND ITS A LOTUS. DAMMIT, KEEP IT CLEAN

What I had to do was Interior, Engine, Exterior. Interior wasnt that hard to do... The main problem was the sand grains that kept popping up! Engine too me literally an hour to do . I had to bring out the all mighty tooth brush because there were so many frieken gaps, and dirt everywhere. Exterior, was the best The car was really dirty before, but since it was new, there wasnt too much damage, The front spoiler was cracked all over the place (car is sooooo low). Anyways, Here are the cleaned pics.














^ Being put away for the day


Me... imp:

Yes... I got a ride in the car. BTW, the owner had a twin turbo porsche, and an NSX. He says the lotus is 2x's faster. I really didnt care but, DAMN, I was really stuck in the seat. We hit 100 easily, He took me to a nice turny road, and then brought me back. I didnt want to leave

Anyways, The guy was really happy of the results... He will also be getting me some cars to detail... A nice Ferrari 360, Some porsches, and something else... But, I dont want to jinxx it .

My own. I washed the car at one of the guys shops. The owner of the lotus owns 3 mechanic shops 1 only deals with foreign cars (no american cars), only exotics, boats.

I washed it at the foreign car shop . I will be going to his exotic one to wash the 360
