That looks really good, but how long will it stay like that?

09-16-2004, 05:39 PM
Looks good, except they forgot to polish your exhaust tips.

09-16-2004, 06:29 PM
That's one nice Accord! :thumbsup:

09-16-2004, 06:54 PM
thats alot of money for a detail!, what kind of polish did they do?

09-16-2004, 06:57 PM
damn! thats shiny.

heres some back breaking work from me and illegal from a few days ago. woo woo!

09-16-2004, 07:49 PM
Guy told me it'll stay like that for a year... All my fine scratches and swirls are gone for good... I had the entire car cleared of chemicals and then cut, polished, polished again, and then a diamond polish and sealed or something... You pay for what you get...

you've got a nice polish there too lam boy.. Thanks for the compliments on the car

09-16-2004, 09:16 PM
wow that looks great :thumbsup:

09-16-2004, 09:19 PM
Oh my....:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Thats a beauty....nice and clean.

I hope I run into you again at blockbuster so I can check my hair out on your hood.:D

Yah, I once had the shine factory do my car and it cost me a little less than that if I remember, but the quality was actually really good. They used some sort of de-oxidizer or some shit and it turned out really shiny! I had this done in Calgary and I was driving back and forth to Lethbridge and yah, it lasted for just over a year and a few of the my buddies and the guys I worked with thought I had the car repainted! Not bad for 3 bills even if it did only last a little over a year...that's like a dollar a day for car washes! haha

use some fine steel wool on the muffler tips..:thumbsup: glad your car's paint is OK

09-16-2004, 10:12 PM
Thanks guys ;)

10-08-2004, 04:48 PM

10-08-2004, 06:43 PM

Thats cuz it was back in september i doubt he could keep it like that with all this melting. :thumbsdow

01-25-2005, 11:54 AM
Heres what it looked like a month half ago... It has the winters on right now, so no point in taking pics.

01-25-2005, 11:57 AM
Looks great man, where else in town does waxing for a cheaper than $350???

01-25-2005, 12:28 PM
Still looks damn good. esp. for a Canadian winter.:thumbsup:

Yo dude listen to me carefully... I've gone the cheap way, and it ruined my car, honestly it did... If your not willing to throw down at least 275+ your not gonna get a good job... After both my polishes, I can see the differance in other cars I see on the roads, good job or bad.... Most cars I see, even BRAND new BMWs, and high end black cars, I can see they've had bad polishes done... Its worth the money man... Heres one of my famous selling quotes I use almost every day I goto work... Cheap is not good, good is not cheap... Good luck...

let's expand that out some more
you can have it cheap, fast, or reliable - pick any two. it can be cheap and fast, but it won't be reliable. or you can have it fast and reliable but it won't be cheap. i guess you could have it cheap and reliable but it won't be fast.

ahhh yeahhh. but then I guess it doesn't apply to polishing cars anymore :D

01-26-2005, 10:10 AM
Alright, I am sold -- what is included for $350?

01-26-2005, 12:16 PM
It would probably be cheaper for you AWD... I had to get some chemical removal from a bad polish job... I have no idea whats included, who cares, the guy gurentees a perfect job every time... They even lift your car so your body gets perfect contact with their brushes....

01-27-2005, 01:03 AM
Hey Rich, very clean Accord man, I'm also interested in getting mine done. Platinum Detail right? do they have a website? where are they located?


01-27-2005, 12:00 PM
In the yellow pages bro... In the SE, Near douglas square
