Porsche Panamera White Turbo in for some basic cleaning and protection. I recommended IronX to remove a majority of the iron deposits in the paint and to create a clean base for future detail sessions.

Great condition Porsche 911 up for a gentle cleaning after a track day. Paint readings averaged across at 100 microns. Paint has a very light faint swirl pattern, however extremely hard to tell from a distance. Overall paint is at 95%, advised regimen should be to do regular cleanings after track days and to consider a full polish detail in the future.
Tar removal via Power Clean by gently massaging the paint protection film. Goo Gone for the track stickers.

Had an inquiry from the Tommy Gabele at Tom’s Garage in Apex. 2003 Honda Accord Nighthawk Black with repaints on various portions of the vehicle. Worse was the hood that had obvious huge issues from improper buffing and rotary swirling. Taking the challenge for the budgeted detail I was lucky to use my Rupes + Green Pad + Optimum GPS to greatly revive the paint without going into paint correction type work. A quickie, owner will be informed about possible one or two step details to address the rest of the paint defects. Thanks to Tom for the chance to work a tiny bit of magic.

BMW Z4 in for a quick clean and seal. At a later date we will clay and do a 1 step polish to the surface. Interior was lightly dusted and cleaned.
C43 AMG Silver sedan in for a quick cleaning and protection regimen. Paint readings indicated a full hood respray, fenders and side doors were blended. Hood readings at 300+ microns, fenders at 200+ microns, and side doors around 180+ microns. Due to the age and mileage (200+k Miles) the best diagnosis was deep cleaning and protecting the paint versus correction. Rear panels were as low as 77 microns of paint. Rust spots, paint chipping, and clear coat failure was predominantly all over the vehicle.

New 528i Detail to address buffer swirling and overall neglect from the previous owner. Vehicle had 16K miles and the previous owner had a hack detail done. Trunk lid and front hood had a significant amount of buffer swirling from a high speed rotary.
Mediocre before. I had done the interior with a thorough vacuum and spot cleaned stains around the interior. Overall great shape.
