    Advance Detail Chile- 1998 Honda Civic Coupe

    Heloooo again friends,

    i has been president election week here in Chile so every buisness has been real slow this past days, but saturday about 12:30 am start talking with a person that added me on msn, he said that he wanted a correccion for his car, exterior only because he had the interior done like 2 days ago, well we decided next day (sunday) would be great, so i told him i would show up at about 9am the next day at his house to pick up the car, this was just a normal correccion nothing out of the ordinary, but this is what i found while driving the clients car back to my "workplace"...

    aparantly the vehicle had the interior "cleaned" but the only thing they did was spray "SILICONA" that is like a liquid silicone that is used alot here in chile, it give a REAL shiny and Greasy surface that i hate. it made driving a nightmare wth the sun reflecting on the dash.

    Holaaa nuevamente amigoss,
    Ha sido elecciones aca en chile asi que la mayoria de los negocios a estado muy lento estas semanas, pero el sabado como a las 12:30 de la manana me agrego un cliente por MSN, que necesitaba un detallado exterior solamente ya que el interior lo habia mandado a limpiar hace 2 dias, asi que nos coordinamos para las 9 am del proximo dia (el domingo) para ir a buscar el auto a su domicilio, todo fue una correccion normal, lo unico fue la molestia del brillo del tablero en todo el viaje a mi casa....

    Al parecer mandaron a limpiar el interior, pero lo unico que hicieron fue tirar silicona en todos lados, que parecia aceite de comer.

    Well lets start with the begining pictures:
    comenzemos con las fotor al llegar:












    now the main reason this client contacted me was because of white overspray paint, he had took the car to a wash and wax but it did not help a thing ..the cars surface was very rough with contaminants, so about 2 hours of claying were needed to remove it all, after the detailed wash, the car was preped for correccion
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    la razon mayor por la cual me contacto el dueno era por rociado de pintura, ya que pintaron un cerco con pintura anticorrosiva y cayo en todo el auto, el lo llevo a lavar y encerar pero no le ayudo en nada, la superficie estaba terrible con contaminantes, aprox 2 horas fueron tomadas por el descontaminado via Megs Mild Clay. Despues de el lavado detallado, el auto fue preparado para correccion,









    Exaust was hand polished-Escape pulido a mano:





    then correction began-Luego comenzo la correccion:





    we had a cloudy day so i could not get very detailed pics, but this is a before, and after
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    tuvimos el dia medio nublado, asi que las fotos no se ven muy bien del cambio pero ahi les va un antes y depues,



    now the headlamps had alot of trouble, they were yellow, but after some fixing we were able to bring them back to the best i could, they were cracked from the inside.
    ---------------------------------
    ahora las luces estaban terribles,estaban amarillos, pero despues de arreglarlos los logre regresar a lo mejor que se pudo ya que estaban partidos por el sol.

    Before-Antes:



    After-Despues:



    now we where finished..... BUT, i wanted to take some pics of the interior that was "cleaned" so i taped a 50-50 of the steering wheel and took a pic of the real way to make a surface clean.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    ahora estabamos listos..... PERO, queria tomar unas fotos del interior, que segun estaba limpio, asi que tape la mitad del manurio y tome una foto de como deberia quedar:


    and on the door panel:
    y en el panel de la puerta:




    now some finished pictures: y las fotos finales:




















    and a "little something" i give out to my clients, Meguiars should send me some "freebies" because of the free advertising iam giving them here in CHile jaja

    Nelson, Great work once again. I bet the owner was thrilled when you returned his car to him. Is he going to let you do a complete interior detail?

    that car looks so good! I wonder why they didn't want the interior done..
    A Pontiac is a Chevy with better trim.
