Been working on this car (1929 Isotta Fraschini) fairly steady since February. It was a full restoration. Finally, after finishing this car, a hand injury, getting sick, a vacation and some traveling for work, I can start booking regular appointments for my patient clients. This has been my longest busiest year yet.
The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is next month and I am officially booked up well into late August. I am going to have my work cut out for me but this is the pinnacle of automotive detailing. The Pebble Beach Concours is the best Concours in the world. It takes lots of hard work, a massive amount of hours and a pure dedication to get vehicles ready for this event.
My vote is already in.
Getting down n dirty on this 1955 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing. Full undercarriage detailing. We removed the belly pans, checked for correct inspection marks, any obvious issues and removed typical grime/grease from cars that only leak when they are running right!
When a car is worth well over $1 million dollars, this type of what most people would consider "overkill" is necessary.

Did a full paint correction (wash, clay, compound, polish and seal) on this 2011 Ford E-350 limo bus for Elegant Image Limousine. This company is run by a true professional that keeps his massive inventory looking no less than stellar at all times.
I have detailed many limos for many companies, and can confidently say Elegant Image Limousine by far and away has the best looking vehicles, bar none, of any limo company I have seen before. Great people deal with.

When I booked a Hyundai Elantra in for a new car prep, I was not expecting this car to show up. This is a 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport...turbocharged. Much different than the Hyundai Elantra I remember. The Electric Blue color looked excellent after coating.
This car was completely coated with C.Quartz UK. The front bumper, hood, roof and trunk also got an additional coat of Optimum Gloss Coat.
Toyota Tacoma interior and exterior detail. This truck was protected using a paint sealant. I regularly stock over 17 different paint sealants. There is not a one size fits all approach when it comes to paint protection. Color of vehicle, expected longevity, vehicle condition, budget, environment etc. are all factors when it comes to choosing the right product for your particular car or truck.
560SL in for some paint polishing. This car had lots of swirls and a rather dull finish. This particular car had very thin paint with some spots around 2.7 mils.....thus I had be very meticulous as to not remove any more clear than was necessary to achieve a decent finish. Tedious work for sure but the results were fantastic.
Installing the engine in this 1929 Isotta Fraschini. This is a full restoration and the car is going to the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Every little detail needs to be perfect and period correct.
