Horses for courses buddy,I'm not here to preach,it's a bit like i'm no good at plumbing neither an I am a medical surgeon so therefore I'd go to a pro,I could do all the reading up on subjects I've never done and know I could'nt be anywhere near competent so rather than making a balls up or spending money on equipment I'm not likely to use again it just makes sense to go to someone who can so the best job within my budget.

In Leeds but I'm originally from Huddersfield. The next time I visit family is it ok to drop in for an evaluation or would I need to make an appointment?

Solid equipment from names like Flex/Rupes etc with all the necessary accessories to fix that paint will easily costs you what the detailer will ask. With cheap brands you might get away with half that.

The equipment will pay itself however after you have to do the second or third correction. But: You rarely will descratch your car every year. Usually, for a private normale car enthusiast, it's cleaning up once and then in the future pay attention to not scratch it again, so you won't use the stuff often. You don't want to polish away the entire clearcoat anyway.

In addition, it's quite the work .. so if you don't enjoy it, it's annoying. On the other side you might get addicted to cleaning up really bad cars after seeing the difference and start to detail your friends, mothers, dogs car.
