Detailed: Filthy Mazda 3 (Picture Intensive)

This was a detail I did for a family friend. He brought the car over in the morning, I didn't really take a look at it till I was about to start. I had no idea it was this bad. Regardless though I'm thrilled about the turn around. The wheels definitely far from perfect but I did what I could with it. This is a company car and the company will be selling it soon so thats why he brought it over. Anyways I'll let the pictures speak as usual.

no...not really lol. The wheel wells and engine bay took a good two and a half hours though. Waxing with 845 doesn't take long at all. I wax the entire car including windows and all, let it sit. Put all the stuff back inside. Then buff it off. Thats the best thing about 845, I didn't even know you can do that till Ken told me.

Thanks Ken! I'm sure you get way worse trucks since you said you detail more trucks then cars, it must be fun when you get a construction truck

That's a good tool, a pressure washer. I can never get all the dried dirt and mud out from my dad's wheel wells. Try as hard as I might with a garden hose. =(

Go to those self serve car washes with the pressure washer wands (like the one on Royal Oak by the skytrain).
