Filthy Horse

Well now that I've got your attention haha. Well here is the patient I got today that I picked up today for a family friend of my girlfriend. He told me over the phone that the car looked good and paint looked great, I've been on the game long enough to know this was not the case at all and when I went to pick it up out in the sun my fears were very correct. I already told him he's not going to recognize his car when I drop it off and being 9 years old I'm pretty sure this horse didn't look this good coming off the truck at the dealership. Would love to answer questions on process and products as this was all achieved (mostly) with a DA and products you can buy yourself. Here we go:

As picked up, with dog/camaro/boat glamour shot haha








Rear deck/spoiler defects



Hood and Bumper looking good





Neglected engine bay





Hood 50/50 tests





Fender







Driver Door







Quarter panel 50/50



Rear







Deck Lid

No joke, this is a warning sign to anyone who ever uses auto car washes, not a cheap fix for me to clean it up for him either. Needless to say he is not going back and I was very happy to hear that .

Lots of years of improper washing and Michigan weather were not kind to this mustang. Thanks alot man, glad to provide the view

Re: Filthy Horse

Some amazing results, man! Wish I knew a good detailer like that around here. I do okay myself, I guess, but don't have near the time or equipment to do a retoration like that. Looks like you breathed some life back into that pony's finish.
