Apollo Detailing: 1993 Mazda 626

I just finished up a Detailing Seminar with some Maxers here and had some energy left and decided to do a test on a 1993 Mazda 626 that has been sitting for about 2 years.

I wanted to do this to see if indeed I could bring life back to paint that has suffered years without even a basic wash. It has also been sitting and there are several sections of the vehicle that have suffered from clear coat failure.

Porter Cable
4" LC Pads, Orange, Yellow, White
Menzerna PG, FP
2000 Grit Colour Sand Paper

The challenge






Step One: Wetsanding with 2000 grit





Removal of 2000 wetsanding scratches

From earlier, this is what a proper wash looks like...

WOW, you give me hope about the condition that my paint is in.

I'm having trouble finding some stuff about detailing on your website. Do you have a write up on the products you use and the methods you go by?

This looks like good work.
I REALLY need to set up a time to come and see you. We need to talk about some paint correction and such. I'd like to see what you offer and if your prices are reasonble.
I am pretty busy the next few weeks, but if you shoot me your # via PM, I will try to contact you.

PS. Do you also do dent removal.

I am really on the fence about getting a respray or getting a nice detail job. There are 2 areas that require attention on my car, so the dillemma is ongoing.

Thank you. I did not see you at my Detail Seminar.

If you are serious about it, give me a date when you are available and I can set up an inspection and consultation. If you're happy with the service I provide, leave it with me and if not, you can be on your way.

First date I have available is April 28.

You did not see me because I work weekends,weekdays, whenever I can, otherwise I can't afford to have a car which needs detailing.
I am at work, as I am typing this. I have my busy weeks, and my slow weeks.

The seminar finished at the time I got off work that day. I don't blame you though, you did it on your own time, so it is only fair that it is convenient for you and the majority. I wish I could have made it.

I want someone to look at it for sure. It needs to get dents pulled(someone is trying to set up a GB), detailed, and 2 attention spots done.

I am looking at around early May for a consultation on a day, I have off (won't know until a day or 2 before).

That is why I figure having your business # to contact you would be good, as I can set something up last minute. Then, after the consultation, I can plan a few days ahead and plan a drop off, as I need to arrange a ride home.

I understand you could not make it to my Detailing Seminar. It's unfortunate, because a number of fellow automotive enthusiasts were in attendance and were able to learn a lot about this trade.

If you are interested in getting your M5 serviced by Apollo Detailing, you may visit my website at http://www.apollodetailing.com. You will also find all my contact information is there, with my phone number listed on the front page.
