Jaguar extreme makeover!

Neighbor brought this to me this afternoon. He needed it back the same night, not a lot of time. But I think I got it pretty good

Great job. Just out of curiosity, how long could one expect for those results to last?

Give me a call and we'll meet up and go over your car together. I'd like to see it before I even try and give you a quote.

Unsure. I gave him a warranty good until he leaves the driveway

Seriously, if he stays on top of it(polish or cleaner wax monthly or bi monthly), then it should last a while. If he lets it go, it won't take long for it to fade a little bit. I think he's just trying to squeeze another year out of this car, so it should last him that long at least.

Clay didn't do anything for the defects in the paint. Clay will only remove contaminats that are on top of the paints surface.

I wanted to wet sand it, and it probably would have turned out a bit better, but I just didn't have the time to do it. This was strickly a buffing, actually lots of buffing

It's a terrible story, really. On his way back from SEMA, Nick got stuck in Reno. Next thing you know he's wearing hot pants and a tank top, crusing around on roller skates doing coke, prostituting himself. Sad story.

Nick, that looks incredible, and without sanding, just wow!

Just curious, which compound(s) did you use to rid the oxidation?

NO NO NO, it should be DFWLS1's, CUMMINS, C6 VETTES.net

I need a top notch job on my Mega Cab

it's the first non-white truck I've owned in a while, and you can see EVERYTHING

I know you're not in top notch shape and we're hours apart, but I don't really trust anyone else.

if you can recomend someone down around Houston, I'll take your advice, but I'd really rather have you do the work
