Photo after a car show, maybe 6 hours after I had finished a quick clay and wax job on it.
Can see the hand prints on the bumper and the swirl on the front fender from where some kid decided to lean against my car. Some people have no decency.

This is a picture of the hood of my car that my detailer who is in the picture took after he had done a light polish to my car. in August he applied the 22PLE glass coating to my car and look at the reflection of both him and the top of my house in the picture it's amazing

Here's another shot after he finished polishing it. That is his reflection in the picture, not mine and that's the top of my house in the picture and the car is in sunlight, look at the Shine in the hood

Since you posted that, it reminded me of this picture....

Here is a picture of me and my car after applying 22ple VX1 Pro last year.

nice!!!

I had asked you about the 22PLE and you gave me good info before he applied it. the reason my detailer used that is because I wanted the wet look and he felt that product works the best.

it is amazing the shine my car has and i was so pleased that I am not screwing it up by washing it and putting swirls in there. takes a lot of time but its working. I have the Obsedian/Red 2014 IS 250Fsport. love it but the black takes a lot of TLC

I couldn't handle Obsidian black... I hardly have any time to take care of my own cars... it would surely get neglected

Here's a shot of mine from this afternoon while I was working at a customer's house. My car was washed the other day with ONR Rinseless Wash and then a layer of CarPro Reload for added protection on top of my coating. Only takes 30-40 minutes to do... can't beat it

Looks nice. That's good advertising to arrive in a car looking like that.

Your detailer looks much like Jose of Superior Shine. Whomever, the reflections looks awesome.

^ I was thinking it looked like him, too.



Here are a few pictures of the Audi I just finished up. Polished with Optimum Hyper Polish and then coated with CQuartz Finest.






^How's that for a reflection
