This is a Tale of Sadness, Frustration and Success all in the span of a 36 hours. Read more to hear this tale!!!

So Autogeek.net Picked me to Demo some new 6.5 inch Hydro-Tech pads from Lake Country. These are brand new and just popped on the market. They sent me a Cyan Cutting pad and a Tangerine Polishing Pad.

At first i looked at these pads and said "***!?!?! These pads are WAY too stiff"..... Yes, they are hard and stiff pads but finish UNBELIEVABLE. they both finish amazingly clear and perfect, They also use less Polish because the foam is designed to work with water based products!!! Even on this Soft Porsche Clearcoat, that pads finished AMAZING!!!

THANKS AUTOGEEK.NET FOR CHOOSING ME TO DEMO YOUR NEW PRODUCTS!!!!

The owner contacted me Via Local car forum for a detail job. He stated that the car was a 2006 Porsche 911 with on 17K miles on the clock. He had stated that the car had visible swirl marks while in the sun. The owner had just bought the car a few weeks before (Used) from a Porsche dealer in So Cal.

I Told the owner i would need to see the car to give a quote because paint correction is impossible to quote via phone. Because the owner lives in West LA and I live in Orange County it made it difficult for the owner to swing by so i could do a Inspection. Because of this, i told the owner that i would write up a work order and we will finalize thing saturday morning for drop off and sunday evening for pickup.... It only has 17K on the clock and was bought from a dealer... whats the worst it could be right?

So the car arrived. and i looked at the swirls and they looked kinda bad..... But i new deep inside that there was filler covering MASS amounts of damage....

Baked On Brake Dust I had to clay to remove this.... :(

So I washed the car and clayed it as usual........

This is when i realized I had a WAY bigger job ahead of me than i thought..... How did all these swirls appear on a 17K mile car!?!?!?!

.... At this point i cried a little bit for a few reasons....

The main reason being that this Job need WAY more time. If i would have been able to see the car in person, i would have told the owner that this was a 3-4 day job instead of a 2 day job..... I knew right then, that it was going to be a long weekend. By the time the wheels were fixed and the underhood and car was clean it was already the afternoon. So i too my lunch break and went to go by 16 cans of Red-Bull. I knew if i busted my *** and didnt sleep that i could get it done. I really wanted to get cool pics of this car but i knew i had to put the camera down and concentrate.

The next 24 hours were kinda a blur. It consisted of a can of red-bull every hour, LOTS of buffer time, and Power naps here & There.

After pulling it into the garage....here is what happened.....

IMG_1941Small.jpg


This was my test Panel....After 6-7 different pad & product combos i settled on Wolfgang Total Swirl Remover 3.0 + LC Hydro-Tech Tangerine Pad & Wolfgang Finishing Glaze 3.0 + LC Hydro-Tech Cyan Pad.

Here is with 1 pass for test of WG TSR 3.0.....i knew by first glance that this was the combo was the winner.

That Destroyed Rear Quarter Panel.....

I'm afraid to try to get rid of them myself.

Amazing! You are damn good I give you that. You need to steer me in a good direction for my mineral grey GT :) We have a ton of sand on the roads here even in the sumemr time and my underbody and fender wells look horrible and even coming off in some places. Not to mention I am having a hard time giving the engine bay that fresh new look.

Nice work Handz, you should get a domain and setup a website with a showplace for all your jobs and continue to grow your business.

One of the best ways to advertise for low cost IMHO is a ValPack insert. Also, asking people to let you set your cards on their desks in places the public frequents can be very cost effective.

Thanks man!! I have been thinking about getting my own garage with my buddy that way we can split the rent. He does Window Tinting and Car stereo installs while i do Detailing. Plus if the shop had a lift i could do side mechanic work also. :flag:

I am currently trying to get a website build. That is the main reason i am trying to do all these high end cars.....because i need pics for this website.

I have been passing out business card alot lately. This friday i am going to spend all day at the exotic car dealerships in the rich part of town to try and get some business. I will be in a suit, with a clean waxed mustang, which a laptop that has all my pics on it. When someone buys a Ferrari, i am gonna be right there to make sure they see all the defects in the paint :rolleyes:

Very nice work... All your work is phenomenal. I've never seen someone clean a car so damn well. Your end results always look like brand new showroom cars. I hope it works for you as a career, cause you're damn talented. Good luck!

I have no future plans to use this as my Career. I have other ventures i am currently working on. Auto detailing is WAY too labor intensive to do everyday. I am beat after i do a car....REALLY beat.

Cool! I need new pads and some new chemicals. I was planning on WG for the chemicals (just basics, a medium swirl and glaze) but instead of the Lake Country I will try these new pads. :nice:

Yeah, I don't blame you. I'm beat after a lame 2 hour carwash, can't imagine what 3 days of detailing would do to me. :p
