Attention to Detail (UK) - spot the difference!

Thought you guys and gals would appreciate this - as part of the general new owner syndrome, and as my JCW has ticked over 90k, I felt a rejuvenation was in order.

Having rarely cleaned my car personally before (it's a London flat thing), and being disappointed with the results of the local car wash, I felt a proper professional detail was in order. Who to turn to? Well, back in my smart roadster days, I'd met a friendly chap called Mark who had just taken his hobby professional, albeit part-time as still the case. A few email exchanges and it seemed clear he knew what he was talking about.

Mark arrived at 7am on Sunday and left gone 4pm. The results, I think, speak for themselves...

-> Search for "atten2detail" on Facebook <-

The next challenge will be to keep it looking as good!

P.S. For the self-detailers out there, wherever you are, I should add that he is also happy to recommend products and suppliers, etc, as he has no affiliation and no interest in selling products himself.

P.P.S. What is the objective behind the 15 post minimum before members can post URLs to other sites? And what other restrictions lie in store? The URL restriction is like going to a cliqué meeting and being forced to contribute small talk before being allowed to present..

Wow I'm inpressed, he did a very good job.

The blocking of URL for new users I'm guessing is to stop spam / scammers from registering and posting links

It would be great to see photos, but oh well!

Sounds like you are really at the pride of ownership level with your car, which is a good thing.

Sorry for the inconvenience, I'm not worthy enough to post URLs yet..!

Wow, thanks for the step by step detail. The iron cleanse sounds like the purple rain treatment that I've used on my wheels. Did he start off with snowfoam before going to the two bucket wash?

Yep, that's the one! I figured a proper rejuvenation was worth it, at least once.

To be honest, I only caught up with activities after the two bucket wash, but worth posting a comment on his site and I'm sure you'll get a reply.
