Re: Here's how you're supposed to detail your car

Why would that guy do all that cleaning and then directly proceed to drive the car on a dirt road to take pictures? It does look nice now.

Re: Here's how you're supposed to detail your car

damn!
i barely have time to wash the car and do a quick vacuum half the time nevermind some details job that lasts like what.......6 hours?

impressive, but this detailing would be for the guy going to a car show, not downtown cruising?

lawls!

Re: Here's how you're supposed to detail your car

I detail mine almost like this every month. I hand wash and dry it every weekend. I think it looks as good as his, + mine is a Honda.

Re: Here's how you're supposed to detail your car

I think he should have just bought a new car if he is so ****, its almost a sickness how clean he wanted that car to be. If he had just bought a brand new car, he wouldnt have had to go through all that work. I think its excessive and I think most would agree also.

Because it's England. Even if the roads aren't dirt over here, they may as well be. Worst roads I've ever seen.

Yup. Give me teams and sizes, and whether you want official or not. They won't be cheap (exchange rate is awful), but I can get them.
