I would say an old hard pad with chunks out of it and never cleaned would be more like it lol!!

Cheers Will, Personally im all on for it we all have had to start somewhere, look far enough back on here and most of the top guys we doing it on the side in the beginning doing it right is teh key a mess like this shows the lack of knoledge and experiance the person had they would be better starting with a DA and doing it for fun and beer tokens for a while longer.

Think hard people, do you want to be known as a 'top detailer' who butchers someones pride and joy??
I would agree see work they have done chat to the detailer themselves see what they say. When they say things like 100% correction, products they use are tehy suitable to the paint type of the car have tehy checked for repair work as it makes a huge difference to teh finish etc etc then they don't have a clue

Great turnaround in the after pics. The black looks superrrrr!

I would agree but its a growing problem and now they are charging top dollar money as well which fools people.

I can only imagine how delighted your customer was after seeing those end results. Hopefully she spreads the word about "proper" detailing instead of the work carried out by the first cowboy
Cheers he was over teh moon and for a while even scared to drive it, but I told him go enjoy it he looks after it very well and he has it still looking perfect nearly 6 months later.

As a keen amateur, I enjoy playing with pads and compounds, but after seeing this, I cant wait to try out my bottle of Luminos

Will be interested to see how it fares on Frozen White paint
Cheers Brocks tell me how you get on its a very handy product thats for sure dont IPA at all now.

Many thanks there literally was no reflection once the black hole was removed! Just goes to show how effective it is at masking marks.

Awesome work. Amazing difference. How it shouldve been done the first time.

Every valeter now thinks they are a detailer too.
So many cowboys and its a shame folk pay them over a real pro.

Glad its sorted. I kinda feel bad for person paying out twice and other hand i dont as they choose the cheap guy because of price instead of getting it done by someone with good portfolio and experience.

Guy made more mess than what ot was before he started i bet.

Some of the products sound real interesting.
Will keep my eye out for them

Cheers tbh this guy is charging more then I do! he is a good valeter but not good with the buffer! interior and engine bay were faultless and TBH I only hoovered and striped teh mats and few the leather so he was not all bad plus he did the wheel arches so I didn't have to lol! The owner was not "into" detailing and in his defence knew very little about it but he does now.

Proper detailer!,,,,,,.

Rollo outstanding work as always and as someone has already said everyone can go online and see your top rate work and should believe their own eyes.
For anyone who isn,t ,t aware they should know you also manufacture/sell top quality products at reasonable prices-----On that note will be up soon for some more. Cheers George.
