  1. Paint Damage

    Spirit Detailing
    There's been a lot of cars over the threshold at my place recently with pretty bad damage caused by people who don't know how to use a machine polisher but still charge for the service. Here are two cars that came in one after the other last week for paint rectification. BMW 520D 2011...

    Spirit Detailing
    Hi guys, How is everyone on BMW-Driver.net? Just thought I would stick my head in and say hi. Its been a long while. :) I know loads of members and non-members have been in with me over the summer for paint corrections and detailing work (and I promised to get back on the forum) but if...

    Hi guys, Over the Winter, I am doing a slight change to my business hours. I will be open from Tuesday to Saturday from 9.15 to 5.45. Although on Saturday, if its a quiet day I might leave at 5. :rolleyes: The reason for this is that a lot of people have been calling about collecting...

    Spirit Detailing
    I put this in Bart's thread over in the showroom, but just sticking it here for reference as well... ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Bart's E30 M3 was one of the tougher paint corrections that I have had for a number of reasons. The curves, contours...
  8. My Mobile Detail Service

    Spirit Detailing
    Guys, I got a good few emails about my mobile detail and paint correction service since the E30 & Z4 thread. Just to clarify what to expect from a single-day paint correction: Example A. If your car is a few years old and is pretty hazed over with deep scratches, then a single-day's detailing...
  9. 330i CQuartz Detail

    Spirit Detailing
    Here's one that turned out to be a lot tougher than I anticipated... and just to boot, the photos I took were at the wrong setting, so this is a short write-up for the amount of work! LOL:o It was raining when I got the car back to the workshop, so I began with the engine detail. Trigger-spray...

    A nice return visit to work on a few more nice cars from a very cool collection. :cool: The first car had a few problems and I was a little concerned when I saw it....:eek: A ceiling panel - basically a big piece of plywood - had come loose and dropped on the side of the car causing some...
  11. Impreza STI in CQuartz

    Spirit Detailing
    Just a quick write up. Fingers are fecked after polishing steel rims for a few hours this morning!! :p Had this STI in from the South East last week. It was fairly swirled and scratchy so needed the full Spirit TLC treatment. The pix will do most of the talking, but just in case it did get...
  12. E90 330D M Sport CQuartz Detail

    Spirit Detailing
    This E90 330D M Sport is a cool car. I have a very slight preference for a 335D but this particular 330D is very alluring in this dense metallic Graphite colour and carbon fibre trim. An ideal car for CQuartz coating - but in need of a good prepping and polishing first! Here's how it arrived...
  13. 330D 1-Day Intensive Detail

    Spirit Detailing
    Guys, A good way to keep a car looking new is with an intensive 1-day detail. This 330D came in for a good all-over Detail. Since its a bespoke service, tailored to the owners needs, the owner requested that I focus more on the exterior polishing than on the interior. However, I'm always up for...

  17. CQuartz Detail - New(ish) White GTI

    Spirit Detailing
    Hi guys, A new White Golf GTI was purchased in December by one of my clients, Dave. I had detailed his previous red Golf GTI to a very high gloss and coated it with Crystal Diamond Glaze. CDG is one of the great sealants. It lasts well and leaves a gloss to rival the very best waxes out...
