    Default My first paid job

    Today I carried out a job for a friend, after a couple of months telling him he should take care of his new car he eventually listened to me and parted with some cash lol.

    The car has pretty good paint work, there are areas I would love to tackle and would take about 10 hrs but time was a bit of a factor today, so I kept it short (3.5hrs) and sealed it down for the winter. the process was:

    Rinse
    Wash (2BM obviously)
    Clay using demon shine as a lube
    Wash
    Dry
    Machine polish with SRP on a megs polishing pad (A few water marks left because it was too hot, this got rid of them)
    Wax with megs 16 (wheels included)
    QD to give a nice wet finish
    Door jams wiped and waxed
    Exhaust done with killer chrome

    Here are the results











    And some reflection shots

    First in the bonnet



    the second in the passenger side door



    The car has a lot of orange peel on it which is from factory paint. I would be interested to see how good this paint could be.

    I only charged him £30. I probs would have charged him the same if he left it all day too. Just need to cover the costs of products till I get more cars under my belt.
