What a difference a professional makes

I dropped my mom's 95 Taurus SHO with Nick Sunday afternoon. The car was in so so shape. Not abused but definitely neglected. Paint was in fair shape but there are some dings and chips in the paint so I wasn't to concerned about the exterior.

I talked to Nick about what I thought needed attention, mainly the interior such as the carpet because it had all kinds of crap spilled on it from my niece and nephews over the years and the leather which was never taken care of. I wasn't to concerned about the exterior because honestly, it needs to be repainted because of the dings and chips but I had him wash and wax it anyway.

So this afternoon I picked up the car. Carpet looks awesome compared to what it was before. The interior probably hasn't looked this good in close to 10 years Wish the paint was in better shape but having Nick wash and wax it really brought out what's there. Car looks really sharp. Just wish I had taken some before and after pictures to show how it turned out. I ran out of town last week and didn't have time to take any pictures of the car when I got back. Hopefully Nick took a few pics. And dammit it rained today

Thanks again Nick! Might try and take my dad's old truck to you in the next week or so that he's trying to sell. The interior really needs to be cleaned because of the kids

The Evil one's seal of approval

I'm glad you guys are happy with the results Jose. That carpet was definitely a challenge for me. But all in all, I think it came out pretty good.

Let me know more about the truck when you can. I'll be pretty busy this weekend, but should be able to knock it out next week if thats ok with you guys.

Thanks!
Nick

Evil --- "And dammit it rained today " rain is tough but FIRE is a bitch!

YES Nick is VERY good at what he does - my car looked great after he was done with it ......

But the Fire and time outdoors at the shop sure cut short my time enjoying the shine .....

I'll definately have him back - not only for the outside - but the engine compartment too!

Again, awesome job on the carpet Nick. I thought I was going to have to replace it but it looks great now. And the way the rest of the car looks, I'm actually not embarrassed to drive it now

I took my car into the inspection station and it FAILED -

The Tech told me (yes I was not forced to) that I might want try "a couple of large containers of rubbing Alchohol" from the CVS down the street - run it around and come back "hot" ---- as per my other posts ... this didn't work....


Thank goodness for HPP - I am now back up and running .......
