Having once worked as a Car Groomer, I have a great appreciation for those that take a massive amount of time and effort to properly and sometimes anally clean their or other peoples vehicles. There’s likely a few different websites and forums about that are dedicated to this type of thing but one of the more well known ones is detailingworld.co.uk
Though a lot of people seem to scoff at those that go right to the extreme of measuring the depth of the paint and such things, it’s these fastidious details that pass on and allow the lives of cars to continue in other’s hands rather than being sent to the scrapper.
Here’s a few before and after’s, lots of the threads on detailingworld.co.uk are worth a good gander. Of course, once you’re there, feel free to have a nosey about, there’s some epic skill on show and some fine machinery also.
More on the Porsche including interior shots can be seen here;
Not a massive amount needed done on that Porsche, at least not in contrast to some of the corrective paintwork that needed to be completed on this jet black Ferrari. Dark colours generally come out fantastically once completed, usually because they’re quiet eager to show any defects, swirls or spiderwebbing in the paint. As shown here;
To some, these swirl marks might be considered nothing at all, or at least nothing to bother about, it’s not until many people see the finished product without those marks that you realise just how much they detract from the cars appearance;
…and the end result of the well spent time and effort;
Here’s a few other threads of interest, although they might not be older cars, one cannot help but appreciate the time and effort that’s gone into the process.
LandRover Discovery – Shows a fairly striking before and after correction.
Nissan Skyline GT-R (R32) – Demonstrates that even the smallest and seemingly insignificant swirls can take away greatly from the level of shine produced.
Vauxhall Astra – A 3 month intense detailing process, on a brand new car.
That’s it for now, though it should give you a fair bit to look over.
