Never ceases to amaze me. I watched Nick and 1BAD2K work on this car. They were pulling their hair out with some "imperfections" in the finish. I couldn't even see what they were talking about. It looked good the first 432578963245 times they went over it.

LOL! Getting it as perfect as I can, can be a challenge at times. But people bring their vehicles to me for a reason

Depends really. The current condition, and just how good you want it to look all play a part in the amount of time it takes to complete. Some take 6-8 hours, and I've spent as much as 20-40 hours on others that require absolute perfection. Just depends on your needs and what we've got to start with.

So it will be best to bring my car a day in advanced when needed to be binging??

My wedding will be at the NTX automotive museum, and my viper of course will be inside the wedding area on display. You might want to see if you can work a contract out with the guy at the museum, looks like an armature washes the cars in there.

So you're wanting to get your car done now? Give me a call at 214-205-1287 and we can go over everything.

For the museum, I don't really like to cold call people, or tell them that their detailer sucks. I'd rather them approach me with interest, then I am more willing to give some honest opinions.

Yes, July of next year my viper will for sure be in Dallas and will need to be detailed. About time eh?

He might not even have a guy, next time I'm up there ill mention it. Some of this cars look like they just went through a car wash and they parked them inside.

Another before/after of the scratch...

I was attempting to capture the depth of the scratch, but just couldn't seem to get it. The scratch was all the way through the paint.

Quite a bit of time. Sometimes we get upwards of 20-30 hours into them. Just depends on how bad off they are and how far the owner wants to take it.
