You did enjoy doing it though.😀😀
Right on the first one. Gave him instructions no automated or hand wash car places. No garages with brushes or pre washes. Just try and find a pressure washer and try to keep most of the dirt off.

Iíll post an update when the car returns.

Thatís what Dads are for.

Always enjoy detailing, even though it was just above freezing. Main problem is people who arenít on this forum donít really appreciate the time and effort that you put in, even if itís at an amateur level. Iím always looking to improve my skills. Itís a hobby to me and always will be. I find it therapeutic and it costs me money, but what hobby doesnít cost money.

Same here GSV, love to keep a car looking decent even though it is hard work.

Bet you can't wait for six months to be up then you can do it again. Hopefully it will have been washed every week by a Lithuanian with a gritty rag and dried off with a chammy leather.😂😂😂 You can do a proper transformation then.👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻😀

Lovely job and a few hours well spent by the looks of things!

Regarding the comments about every six months...just think of how much easier the next time around will be owing to the protection that you laid down this time around. With all your prep and a good layer of wax or two I would expect allot of the protection to last 3+ months depending on how much the car is driven

Top work!
