Recommend any Car Detailer / Polish services??

Recommended Posts

Need to get my whole car back to showroon condition again. I have been quoted $125 for cut and polish and extra $60 for preparing the paint (cleans the yellow stains / oxydation.. etc) This was from Spotless Car Detailers - city.

Can anyone recommend someone good? Need to get the car surface like brand new again. Any previous experience? This is for a white car. :)

Thanks.

I had my car detailed by Advanced Auto Finesse when I first got it. Was very happy with it :) They are in the City Dismantlers Complex (8260 2253).

Can't remember how much he charges but I know his prices are reasonable.

The 32 is a bit "swirly" and "water spotted" for my liking, and I'll be [email protected] if I'm slaving over, plus i have a pretty sh!t track record with polishing, etc. :Oops:

No offence but I'd rather go with a business, I'm sure you understand, plus it really needs something in a way of a "restore", certainly more than a wash / polish.

Included for the price is a Wash, Wheels & Arches, Interior Vacuum, Full machine cut, and Hand polish/wax, and Windows Cleaned.

Doing it yourself can some times be the worse thing you can do.

I attempted to give my VS a light cut and polish, I ruined a part of the paint work.

I learn from my mistakes. lol

A decent polish and some elbow grease will do wonders. Anything more, get a professional to do the job.

I'll never trust anyone else to polish my car. - (I wash and clean it at least twice a week - if you keep it clean the paint wont deteriorate as quick so its an easy job)

It takes me at least 2 days if the car needs a full detail.

I would avoid using a buff if you can help it. A light hand cut with a pad and T-Cut on the worst bits, Maguiars Quick Clay, then micromesh 3 times, then a good quality polish (again I prefer Meguiars but there are a few others). If you do a good job there will be NO swirl marks of any kind (from any angle or in any light)

You should be able to do the exterior in a day, but its another day to do the fiddly bits inside the boot, bonnet and doors. Remember the put in on stands, remove the wheels, clean and polish the rims, clean under the guards, treat the plastic and polish the painted surfaces (shocks, springs suspension arms etc.) and give the exhaust a good clean with Autosol or Mothers metal polish).

All clean, now get it inside because the rain is coming.

I'd say $200 is a good price if the work is up to this standard.

PS: DONT let Nightcrawler do your car - he knows why :-)

I'm not "so concerned", but if i'm going to hand over cash I'd rather have someone who has a business and repeat customers to worry about do it, I have a little more recourse with them than with some random person i met on the forums. Altho I'm sure they'd do a fine job too.

Like Cubes my previous cut & polish experiences doing it myself have been less than great, and unlike 4Door_Sleeper i cannot be F*cked doing it myself, so I'd rather pay for it.

Thanks for the additional suggestions of palces and ball-park figures to pay for it people! :)
