I did this car with Denzil back in late December and instructed the owner he can no longer take it to his regular "down the street car wash" (for those of you in the Bay Area--AJ'S!!) after we had spent 23 man hours on the car.

Well, sure enough I got a phone call saying he took it to one, and "for some reason the swirls came back." So I explained what had happened--and he wanted it fixed again. This time around, though, while I was washing it, I let him help out and learn how to do the 2 bucket method. Then I set him up with his own washing supplies before I left!

Anyways, on with the write-up!

Car was dirty from recent off-and-on raining





Foamed the car with CG Citrus Wash/Clear



Here is what I was up against:











After testing a few different combo's, I ended up with: 3M Fast Cut Plus and/or M105 + Detailers Domain Uber Yellow pad, followed by 3M Extra Fine Compound and 3M UK Yellow pad, and jeweled it down with 3M Ultrafina and 3M UK Blue Pad.

50/50's:

It was quite windy over the weekend so I needed to get creative with the EZ-Up:

Amazing job! Some people haha..
Thanks!

Lookin Sweet!
Thank you!

Great work...again! Very nice outcome and hopefully this time the owner takes care to make sure it lasts
Thanks a lit, Marc! He learned his lesson, I'm sure :p

best way to learn is through hands-on demonstration. you give him a discount for helping out? hahaha
Since I charge by the hour--it took me a little longer to complete the wash. But I didn't charge him more for just wanting to learn. So I didn't charge him less, but not more either ;).

more like charged more for slowing him down!!!! :whistle::whistle:
Almost!
