RE: This is how detailing should be done if your paying money for it.
My goodness... thanks for the share, that is insane. That z4 is cleaner than the day it left the factory! Bravo
That wet sand scares me though, not for the faint of heart.. Never seen a polishing ball before, seems nice for those odd corners and bumpers, etc.. 28 hours work though, that is like prepping for a concourse event Skit

But still, agree has to be the most detailed detail I have seen wow!!

That is insaaaane!

Concours winning cars are prepped this way I believe. Don't expect a detail of this caliber to be "cheap" by any means.

I agree

A detail of this magnitude has to be costing a penny and half - hours spent -

RE: This is how detailing should be done if your paying money for it.
There are guys in SA capable of this work. They seldom advertise. I buy some products from a place that has ALWAYS had multiple Ferrari's Lambos or Porsches on site. The Countach being corrected looked like a museum piece!

Nothing cheap about this kind of work.

To give you an idea when I ceramic coated my car (DIY) it took over 10 hours of prep work (and still not 100% and still not the entire car/undercarriage/engine bay etc - just paint). Another 2 hours for my leather... the hourly rates these guys charge, premises, expensive specialist equipment etc I actually think that whilst the amount of money might be alot, it is still good value.

The challenge is that many guys buy a dual action polisher and think they are detailers (like the guys who buy DSLRs and are 'photographers'). The pros are worth paying for IMHO but make sure the guy doing it is actually a pro LOL

RE: This is how detailing should be done if your paying money for it.
I agree with Llew, there are detailers here that are capable of the same, there arent many owners willing to pay the price.

This is true mastery. The demonstration of skill, diligence and application shows through in the finished product.

What would a detail like this cost ?

RE: This is how detailing should be done if your paying money for it.
If anybody could point me to a detailer in East London that could do a detail with even half the skill of this guy, that would be great. There is literally NOBODY here that I can find. a "valet" service is the best I can find
