    Range Rover Sport - 2 day FULL correction detail PIC HEAVY

    Since I referrenced this detail in a couple other threads, I thought Id share it here so you could see the full process. This was a 2 day job.


    2006 Range Rover Sport - FULL correction detail. VERY nice SUV. This owner had bought it recently and wanted to get it looking better than new. I was happy to help. Upon inspection of the car, I noticed that the previous owner did not care for it at all. Extreme baked on brake dust, extreme contaminents on the surface of the paint, and severe swirls all over it. There was also some paintwork evident on the left passenger door, horrible holograms, sanding marks, and pigtails left in the clear. Thankfully this whole thing cleaned up very nicely. To finish this one off was a very high end wax: Swissvax Concorso, applied by bare hand. This wax gives an incredible luster and depth to the paint, warmth of color, and great durability for a wax (about 3-4 months). Most over the counter waxes last about 1 month +/- a couple weeks. Ok enough jibber jabber, onto the pics!

    Total time for completion: 23 hours














    When I arrived, here is what I started with













    Swirls...













    more swirls













    yes, still more swirls.....
















    nasty exhaust tips





















    You can see how dry and dull the paint looks


















    The wheels.... this took a while...















    After about 2 1/2 hours on the wheels and wheel wells, it was time to wash it. Onto the pre-washing soak...

    Here is the Meguiar's mild claybar... This is how heavy the contamination was on this car. It started out pure white. Yet, this is NOT after doing the whole car! This pic was taken after only doing the top edge of the rear panel (about a 4"x20" section)!!! After this I knew I needed the heavy artillery. So out came the Meguiar's aggressive red clay (safe only if immediately followed by polishing)












    After claying, it was time for the next wash. Now you can see the true condition of the paint and swirls without dirt and contaminents interfering.











    Pictures before the buffing process, under the halogens.





















    The repainted door. You can see the holograms from someone who didn't know how to buff properly.













    More problems on the same door, you can see the pigtails here













    50/50 shot













    Another














    Fully corrected!













    A few more 50/50 shots of various spots

    After 16 hours of compounding and polishing, it was brought back outside for another bath to remove the polishing dust and any polishing oils remaining. You can see the clarity restored to the paint and ZERO swirls.


















    After drying, it was time for the Swissvax Concorso. Always fun applying a super luxury wax bare handed. And here are the results.

    I agree, for this type of quality work and 23 hours of time, it can't come cheap. I have to suspect somewhere in the $800-$900 range using say $40 per hour.... Am I close on that?

    Awesome job! I am also curious to know how much this costs. And also, you post a lot of this stuff but I never see any interior pics. I can only imagine the interiors of some of these cars are pretty hogged up too. Do you detail interiors, or are you just an exterior guy?

    Man I wish someone in North Jersey can do that quality work like that on my car, and my car is no where near as bad as that.

    You're within the ballpark.

    I'm just not very good at taking pics of interiors, or sometimes i'm fighting with lighting... Yeah sometimes they are pretty trashed. This one wasn't too bad, but still took several hours.

    $800-$900 DAMN!!! My friend and I used to only charge $150, and we sometimes would pull the interiors apart if they were really bad.

    Wow that sucks, 150 would get a great interior cleaning, but definitely not pulling out the interior!

    For that cost I imagine you weren't doing any sort of paint correction tho.

    Like hell! That was a FULL executive treatment. Usually took 8 hours or more

    Shoot I spent that long on just the interior. Heck the wheels alone took ~2hrs.... Not quite the same treatment.

    But even if you only spent 8 hours thats still a STEAL for the customer.
