    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg As I enjoy car detailing I decided to offer it to a few of my customers as a bit of a variance to windows, connie valets etc, this was todays job...

    A full exterior tfr & snow foam, 2 bucket hand wash, paint exfoliation, then layered up with 2 coats of polymer sealant inc wheels, then a top coat of a luxury carnauba hard wax.

    Hi mate currently using bilt hamber korrosol, get it from eBay easily enough. Cover wheel in it, wait a minute or 2 till it turns deep purple and rinse off no scrubbing.
    Then I do a normal wheel wash with a general all purpose cleaner after to detail any bits its not took off fully. Once you get them mint you will only need korrosol if you do them once a week or so its amazing stuff.

    I agree mate, theres no masses of work in it, but something I do now and again on the side for the types that want that kind of thing done, I charged £100 for that job as she was a regular customer of mine and done loads of work for her, the going rate for that would of been around £160 ish, it took me 5 hours with a few breaks.
    Can charge alot more if you go into things like paint corrections and machine polishing swirl scratches away & the luxury car markets but theres loads out there doing it, so I just mention it to a few customers I know like to look after things and try get the odd job off it.
