Need a serious wax...

Anyone have a recommendation for someone that can do a hard core, time-consuming wax? My car is in serious need of clay, wax, polish, whatever.

Lot's of things I like doing myself... waxing cars is not one of them. The last person that I went to that was highly recommended got wax all over the black trim pieces on my car (it never came out). Too me, that's just lazy and inexcusable. Someone local to Boston please.

^ Unique car car is awesome, I've seen their work on my friend's car and they even gave the door sills a mirror shine. Only downside is expensive.


http://www.automotivespecialist.net/ detailed my car before, did a great job (location: Tyngsboro, MA)

http://www.luxurydetails.net/ have not detailed there before but I have heard good reports, also done electronics work there before with good results. (location: Natick, MA)

Ha ha, they're just down the end of the block from me, yet I've never used them! Always see some awesome looking cars parked in front though.

If they have swirls or after spray or roughness I can def wet sand it to take it off and make it shine even better.

How much do you charge? Would it be best to do it in the spring? And yea I think it has swirls, it looks like someone tried buffing it before? Not positive. But it looks like it wasnt done properly
