  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...

  4. Porsche Boxter & Jaguar XK CQuartz Details

    Spirit Detailing
    Hi guys, you get two write-ups for the price of one here! The paint on these cars were polar opposites, the Porsche having nice hard German paint and the Jaguar having challenging Land Rover paint! I didn't get too many in-process photos, so this will short and sweet! Starting with the...
  5. 5 Series Paint Correction

    Spirit Detailing
    I had Sean's 520i in for a paint correction in the past few days. I was hoping to do a good photo-thread of the detail but on day 1, I had my camera but left the memory card at home! D'Oh! :rolleyes: So the first bunch of photos are just taken with my (old) phone!! So, I collected the car at...

  7. Professional Leather Preservation

    Spirit Detailing

  8. Bentley Continental GTO Detail

    Spirit Detailing
    I planned in advance to do a photo-log of this detail but I didn't realise it was going to be such a difficult paint correction. Here's how the Bentley arrived. It was a tumult of swirls and a heady haze of holograms. No time to waste, so straight in with the prepping. I started off...
  9. Bart's E30 M3

    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...
  10. 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...
  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...

  13. Lotus Elise Detail

    Spirit Detailing
    Nice little car here. I was supposed to have it in the workshop for two days, but a slight hiccup at the mechanic's place meant that I just had it for one full day to do interior and paint correction. The owner asked if this was a problem..... well, I'm known for miracles sometimes. Not this...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
