NX-1 --- Today I did a S500 and a Towncar
 
Today was a very busy day guys, the word is definitely getting around, a lot of people coming in looking to get their cars detailed.
As I got to the shop this morning, before opening the gate I had my neighbor waiting for me asking me to do his Lincoln Towncar, he uses it for NY Limo/Taxi service. He said if it was possible to make it shine, wit a very doubtful voice lol. Well when I looked at the paint I almost cry lol, the paint was very dull, full of scratches everywhere, swirl marks all over, hazing, overspray, all the passenger side except the rear 1/4 panel was painted (probably at the same place Fabian had his bumper painted :lol:). Well I think you get the picture, and if you don't just take a look at the pictures I took...:).

Then I'm still there opening up the gate when I hear my buddy up the street that owns a business yell at me saying "MARIO... COME GET MY CAR...!" So I went to get his S500 and bring it in the shop, he wanted just a wash, clay, polish, wax, complete interior detail, windows and polish the exhaust tips.

A few minutes later the owner of the red Porsche I did, he showed up with one of his 3 motorcycles and he said, this will be the first of the 3 I'll be bringing you, I can't wait he brings the ZX14 he has also :).

OK, here are the pics...

I did the S500 first while the Lincoln was being vacuumed, I have no before pics as it wasn't too bad, I had washed it a few days before and I had the interior done already, so today was just the exterior and go over the interior one more time.

That rear 1/4 panel is really bad, that's just too much clear and overspray on that area, I told the customer that wet sanding it is the only solution to kind of fix that.

I told you it was bad...
You know what's funny... after I called you from my parent's house, we left there and when my wife kids and I are coming back to our house, as I'm turning the corner I saw the owner of the Lincoln just looking at his car in his garage, my wife goes... "Ohh my God, he still looking at it in disbelief, he wants to make sure is the same car he dropped off this morning" and we were both LOL, this was about 3 hours after he picked it up :lol:.
When he picked it up at the shop he looked shocked, he went around it twice, looked at the interior, came out and said, "unbelievable".
Just that word alone made my night. :thumbsup:
What is unbelievable is that I never thought I was able to do both cars today for the work I did on both cars.

Nice job Mario.,.,sounds like things are moving along nicely man. I'm gonna give ya a call soon so you can take care of my WJ and probably my parents Navigator (the Navigator needs it really bad!!) . I think my father in law needed some work on his ride too (I'll find out)

Great work Mario!!!! That Town Car was totally transformed, even with its remaining flaws....I'm happy that the owner was so happy with the work. Shiny paint makes a big difference!

Thanks Hannes! Yup, that Towncar was pretty beat up, that's why the owner looked so surprised to see it like that.

Wow, the finish is outstanding. What do you charge for that quality of finish ?
