The fussiest car cleaner and detailer I know personally is Drew B. I’ve featured a few of his Saabs here on this site before. He’s spent the last two weeks cleaning and polishing a Saab that he’s recently added to his collection and no doubt we’ll get around to adding that one to this site soon.
But he’s got nothing on this guy….
This is Marc’s Vauxhall Astra VXR and when he bought it, he instructed the dealer not to touch it. He had to take the seats out for re-trimming first. And the wheels had to come off.
But all that’s nothing compared to the treatment he gave to the paint. Remember, this is straight out of the factory.
The results are quite impressive though as the following shots will tell you:
And event the headlamps got the treatment….
As part of the process, Marc employes the services of this guy, who’s video I’ve shown once last year. It’s still quite amazing to see again though.
So all you Saabisti that are going to the Saab Festival or SOC later this year – start your paint-depth gauges and get polishing!!!
I’m off to wash the bird poo from the Viggen.
There’s a million more photos of the whole process at the link I put at the start. A seriously scary and strangely entertaining read.
