Post detailing.....

Morning all, had my Boxster detailed last week as part of a paint resoration package by DH Detailing here in the UK, the results are astounding.... as some of you will know, I bought the car about 6 weeks ago and although the coachwork looked pretty good to the naked eye, on closer inspection it was appalling and being black, looked even worse under lights..........





I have some really good reflection pics and 50/50 pics taken during the process and will attach them in due course....

Si.

Cheers everyone, it involved a decontaminant snow foam wash, dry, clay, wash, dry,2 and 3 stage machine polish, clean and hand wax with quality products, 95% of scratches and all the swirls have been removed.

Top service and exceptional price from a company just starting up that took just over 2 days to complete.

Si.
