    The interor was not what this customer wanted done, but sitting in the car I can tell you that compared to our cars it's light years ahead and the GTI has won car of the year multiple times with the interior being a BIG selling point for most in which many claim it has the best interior of all cars 40-45k and down.

    Thanks man... I really wish I could find our camera charger, but since our move I have not a clue... the flake is just something I would have loved to have gotten pics of.

    Great work, nice corrections on some of those panels. A few suggestions.

    Ditch the Adams wheel cleaner for Sonax - just trust me on this.
    Ditch the crappy brush for a Swissvax brush - it's pricier, but you'll burn through those little wood brushes as soon as the hair gets wet (use those for interior details.)

    I don't mind the APC for the wheels... sonax is much more pricey than the APC, for really hard to clean wheels I would use it... but these were new and just had a lot of brake dust on them, but not stuck on much.

    The little wooden brush I used there was basically just because I haven't found my other ones. I had a pretty nice set which, along with many other things was lost during our move :-(

    Don't get me wrong I love Adams APC (almost as much as P21S ) but once you start using Sonax, it's really hard to go back. If you're doing enough detailing, you need to talk to Phil at DetailersDomain about getting a discount...

    Yeah, Phil's a good guy and very good detailer. I've gotten quite a few things from him in the past. I have yet to try the P21S. How about the ... I don't recall the name of it... it's a wheel cleaner Brown something? I don't know, a lot of people seem to like it a lot.

    Don't recognize the "brown" name, I've always enjoyed P21S APC for wheel wells/tires/doorjambs/engine bays and their Wheel cleaner for, you guessed it, wheels. Sonax is my new favorite, followed by Adams Wheel and Tire (their APC is good too).

    Yeah I like it and trust me... i'm no real big fan of adam's. When I had my 370z and was on their forums... I had a few arguments with them about their shipping prices... they wanted like 11 or 12.00 for one drying towel... they also had another guy on there that acted like a detailing expert. I called him out on a few things (and by no means do I consider myself and expert) but later we got everything worked out, and then like 2 weeks later they kicked me off of that part of the site basically because I had posted a detail I had done of my wife's MS3 in which NONE of them included adam's products... I guess it came out to good because they wouldn't let me back on that part of the site lol.

    Great information. I was looking to have opticoat done to my car. Do you do this professionally, or can you refer anyone in the Washington DC suburbs?
