Sometimes protection isn’t everything. In today is Bryan’s new (used) E350, which has seen some better days. The goal of today was to enhance the look of the paint, and ridding as many swirls as possible in two steps of polish. The goal was to achieve about 75-85% correction, which I think we got pretty close to. We certainly could’ve spent a full day worth of extra polishing on the car, but since Bryan only plans to keep the car for another few years, getting the car presentable again was our main concern. Quite an improvement for ~7hrs of work!

Daniel is back for some more Opti! After doing his M3 a few months ago, his new baby was born, and so it called for a new baby-mobile. In today is their new Highlander family car. Loving the lines of the new Toyota line!

Word of mouth has always been the only form advertisement. In today is Bradon’s new daily GTI, which got the royal CS2 Titanium treatment. The amount of gloss on this thing is INSANE!

It’s kind of nice seeing a Mini that is not red around here. In today is Adam’s new JCW coop. He’s had a few cars in Australia coated in the past, so he is familiar with how well it performs. We went with the hole shebang today; paint, trims, lights, chrome, wheel faces, leathers, carpets. Thanks Adam!

I still wonder how dealerships churn out cars in less than immaculate conditions. In today is Alan’s few hundred-mile old Golf R, which ended up taking quite a bit more time than I anticipated to spend on it – but it’s ok. There’s that saying that goes something like … to underpromise and overdeliver. It usually works out in the end. Thanks for the referral Eugene!
