Evo X detailed!

Finally got my car over to ken's place so I can learn a few tricks him. I think I almost scrapped my sides skirts going into his driveway!

Upon arrive my car looks like this...not uber dirty, but its not clean either.







the tools



Then the car got jizzed all over...









Then cleaned...



Ken cleans the wheel





He then whips out a paint brush like things and skooled me on how a sponge will probably miss cleaning little things like the emblem, so you use a paint brush.





Next up! CLAY



DRYING TIME! Ken uses his epic leaf blower!





The imperfections

Prep work for polishing!!









No pictures while polishing, because we were both busy at work

Then waxing!



The finished product

















Things we used










Took 6 hours...it was most epic. Had white spot burger afterward, which was also pretty epic. Ken did an amazing job polishing my side skirts, not to mention that I learn a lot of new things! One thing that freaks me out when we were detailing was the amount of attention he paid to doing things right...I thought I was anal...lol

Just a little background info on my friend, Ken, who does detailing for fun. This is pretty much his part time job, so you if you are local in the greater Vancouver area, and you want your car detailed, PM me! Just trying to help a friend to spread the word that helped me! I hope this doesn't violate any forum rules, if so, I will take this bit off!

Thanks for viewing!

haha...ya, it was not the best clothing of choice...I wore my mechanic suit over my t shirt and jeans . It was really cold outside, so we decided to wash the car in the garage as their was a drainer just out outside. And yes, we used warm water! We used a foam gun, it was fun to use lol

Thanks for all the kind comments. The point of this detail was to get it ready for winter, against all the shit from the roads!

Thats what I like to see. Guys out there in November polishing and waxing! The Colli 845 is a great choice for winter protection. How did you guys like the Gilmour Gun? I havent had a chance to test one yet.
