Hi guys, I haven't been on lately due to being busy at work, braving the conditions we have at the moment across the UK.

 

Been having starting issues with my Mk6 van too :(

 

Anyway, I just thought I would share this detail with you.. I'm hoping you can see it as I will just give you the link to another forum.

 

Skyline GTS detail

 

Hope that works guys.

 

Cheers

OK.. Don't think that is going to work.. Here goes:

 

I did a pre sale clean on a Citroen Picasso earlier in the week for someone that had been passed my number from one of my customers.

 

On completion of the Citroen he asked if I could book him in for another car (The Skyline).

 

Due to time restrictions for personal reasons on the customers behalf, I am only able to work on his cars till midday.

 

So I braved the weather this morning and made my way over to his yard:

I wasn't sure I was in the right place but went in to find this:

It was taken outside for the wash process, here are a few more pics before:

So after a foam pre wash and a good soaking of Smart wheel here is the result after rinsing:

Re foamed and ready for the 2bwm and another clean of the wheels:

It was then taken inside to dry and clay:

I then hit it with Meguiars #80 on a finishing pad:

Put back inside for the rest of the bad weather, I'm back next week to make a start on one of the SL500's :D

 

Total time - 7 Hours

 

how much does a job like that normally cost??

 

 

Enhancement details are from £150 bud - If I have time I tend to do a courtesy vac & dust down in with it just to tidy the appearence up on the interior too. :)

 

Cheers Stu
