We have over 15 pads.

And, I'd say we have a fairly wide range of products. I'll post up new pictures of our product line-up. We practically doubled it from what I originally posted.

And for the 50/50 shots.. We are doing a 2005 GMC Sierra Full size pick up, and we remembered to take a bunch of 50/50 shots. We will post the pictures when we finish!

here are some tesers of another M3 we are working on. We spent 5.5 hours alone on washing, claying, masking, and compounding the car. Still needs a lot, polish, another wash, glaze, sealant, a few coats of wax, other misc things like the wheels, glass, exhaust etc..

Interior still needs everything!

I still need to post the E46 M3 I detailed..

But here is a 1995 AW E34 that needed a full exterior detail.

The car needed work, lots and lots of it, lol! It was a joy to work on, the 18in style 5's are truly a gorgeous wheel!

The car received:

Wash
Clay
Wash + degrease all the door jambs, engine, trunk jambs, gas tank cap/filler area.
M105 + Menzerna SIP in certain areas
Menzerna IP over the whole car
CG Jetseal 109 for protection
CG XXX Carnuba wax for the final touch
Glass cleaned
Wheels cleaned and dressed (sonax'ed)
Engine was 303'd
Exhaust tips cleaned and hit with some #0000 steel wool
Interior vacuum and wipe down
Black trim was treated and dressed

Car turned out like a gem after! I will have the "proper" after photos up hopefully tomorrow!



























most cars require 3-4 orange pads.. This used 8!
