    Hey all, new to the forums. Used to own a taco but sold her to buy my subaru which I detail out of ( not in this detail though)

    Enjoy.

    Proccess used:

    waterless Wash
    IPA wipedown
    Clay
    2 steps of compound with meg's d300 and microfiber pads
    2 steps of polishing with menzerna sf4500 and black and white pads
    IPA wipedown
    Sealant with Blackfire Wet Diamond and blue sealant pad
    C/G paste wax

    The first thing I thought to myself was, how in the world could this thing get any cleaner?!?

    obvious question unless you're not trying to advertise your services; what are your fee's?

    I'm not a mod so I can't answer that, I was just asking in case someone wanted to hire you for a detail

    For this specific detail it was $60/hour and lasted 12 hours.

    I also have cheaper rates, just clay and wax/ polish etc..


    Also a deal where if you're the first one on the forum to get a detail you get a bigger discount.
