but hey you did a good job, just took way to long if you ask me..
I prefer to take my time with my work and not rush it. If you can do it 4 hours, then more power to you. I work every square inch of a car, and do everything I can to make the paint is as perfect as it can be. This takes time. My customers like the fact that I don't rush the work, and I spend the time to make sure it's done right. I've been detailing cars for 15 years now, and have never had to go back and redo any vehicle. Does every car take me this long? No. I have finished several cars in under 6 hours.
This car didn't take me 15 hours just to buff the paint out. Some of that time was washing/drying and prep work that I like to do, like taping up the vehicle to avoid getting splatter in those tight little spots. I don't rush any part of my work, so if someone is wanting their car finished in 4 hours, then I'm probably not the right guy for the job and I will tell you that right upfront.
And your right, your work is probably so much better than mine, and your so much better than me. Seriously, what was the reason for your post?
Oh, almost forgot, the reason I did this Viper is the last guy that detailed it did it in 4 hours, and it didn't look good, and Kelly didn't like the fact that he rushed the job. So he called me.
