This video is like a 'what-to-do' if you want to detail your car on your own.

^ not sure how He would clean the soft top. Ill ask him to post something or PM you.

Just got the DD back this eve. Unreal, it looks cleaner than the day I got it (CPO) from the dealership. Never ever been this clean. Cant wait to see this round of pics!

Dropped the M off this eve. He said it didn't even need anything and to just take it back. Needless to say I left it there anyway... it needs summer sunblock...

here's what you can use for your convertible top, depending if its vinyl or fabric.

Just watched it ^ another great job Franki! cant believe you do all of that with one person, the video editing is really good. Thanks for posting the video, very cool to see the actaul steps taken and a little of the technique used. Nice to see that 9 year old car looking better than day 1 also.

Now that the coupe is done and theres yet another vid, I'm creating this over at the pics/vids section if you wanna see the M too. He did yet another great job. Thanks for the intro knsaber!

Just dropped my car off with Franki and I'm super excited to see the end result. My car is absolutely and embarassingly filthy from 2 days at the track and a few weeks of neglect. The car is covered in a thin but very abraisive layer of track brake pad dust and pulverized rubber as well as rubber scuffs from the r-comps and slicks people run.

The before/after would be shocking even in a total amateur's hands and from the accounts here of Franki's work I'm sure it'll be that much more impressive!

Please post these before and after photos. I think we will all appreciate seeing them.

Yeah this should be great to see. I bet Franki does his 50/50 shots again. We hope!

Unbelievable! So wish you were local. And my car needs a good waxing right now. I'm so finicky with my car I don't know if they will wax my car and rub wax all over the rubber moldings around the glass thus making them more susceptible to being cracked in the future. You just dont know the shops habits and workmanship cause you're not actually seeing them do it. You on the other hand with your video really makes the customer (us) feel confident that our car is in good hands.
Thanks again for sharing!

Thank you Ken! when you're waxing.. it should be always thin, so thin.. that your can barely see it. If you need help finding the right detailer in your area, I be glad to help. I do know a few of them in Florida. Let me know
