Thought I show the ample cargo space in the front.


After washing, proceeded to clay entire car including windows, wheels, etc..





Car is clean and prepped for 50/50 shot of the hood. Taped over the edge of the clear bra to prevent fraying the edges while polishing.


50/50 of the hood


Notice the deeper red on the right vs the the unpolished left.

Amazing. At first I was thinking "The before shot doesn't look bad, how much could you possibly do", but very good job. Shows that even relatively new cars could still benefit from some TLC

That R8 really needed a lot of TLC. It was the most neglected R 8 I have ever laid eyes on. I do blow dry my cars after washing.Clay barring the glass is new to me,and I will check with some other detailers first before I clay bar my glass or my freshly chtomed wheels.

MOST NEGLECTED R8?? How dare you accuse me of car neglect!:p I've only had it for six weeks now. BTW what do you use to blow off your cars?

Now this is neglect and abuse....

I just use filtered air from a compressor.Sure speeds up the drying process in the nooks and crannies.Again I must say that your R 8 is SWEEEEET.Your rims are POPPIN' CLEAN. I am noticing a LOT of special details in the wheels, center caps,even the lugs/covers.You probably are a little hesitant to go get her dirty right away. What a head turner. Did I see your car w/bound 10 freeway near Palm Springs a few weeks ago.I was E/bound ,not in my R 8.:D
