Hey Guys,

I'm Nick and iv'e been doing detailing work on the side for about five years now. My goal has never been to turn over a high number of vehicles but to consistently produce quality work. I enjoy meeting enthusiasts like myself and doing work for people who value their car and it's appearance as much as I do. I treat all cars with the utmost care and use only the safest and highest quality products available. Whether it's a simple wash and wax, headlight restoration, or full paint correction I can help make your car look its best.

Feel free to take a look at some of my previous work below and PM me with any questions you have!

BMW 335
E90 M3

Dodge Viper ACR
Mercedes SL500
Ford Thunderbird

Most of the products I use are from Optimum (ONR, Car Wash, Powerclean, Protectant Plus, Wax, Metal Polish). For polishes and sealants I use Menzerna and a bit of Meguiars. I have both a Flex 3401 and PC7424XP for polishers.

LOL wow that's hilarious, you're rolling the set-up I started with. That's exactly what I was using, Optimum and poorboys are such good values and Menz for polishes is my default. The flex is an amazing polisher, just make sure you oil the backpad with air tool oil every 3 months.

Yep, there are many good products out there and it slowly turns into an addiction trying them all!

Ugh - remind me in April to hit you up on your services. I've been searching for a good detail on my V50 for awhile now.

Look's great!! If the weather decides to stay like this, I may break my V50 outta storage to schedule a visit!
Cool, yeah the winter has been unusually mild thus far.

I do, the odd time, go mobile for customers who prefer not not be inconvenienced but it depends on the work required and facilities available (water, heat, etc)

Hey, this sounds great. Do you do older cars as well? i.e. 21 year-old non-clearcoat finishes :)

I have a 244 DL that will need the paint freshened up in the spring. What would you recommend?

Thanks.

Yes, I have worked on some pretty oxidized single stage paints before and although it can get messy, I have gotten some pretty good results.

I'm guessing the finish is pretty dull and oxidized as well?
