Insane Paint Auto Detailing/Adam's Polishes Before & After pic thread!!


Recommended Posts

In addition to my new son arriving, we recently got a killer new shop!  So it just seems that I haven't had time to do full writeups on some of the rides we do. I thought I'd have just one good spot, where I can showcase some good before & after pics or 50/50 shots. Whether it be via paint correction, seat resurrections, interior salvation, or engine bay revivals. And that way I can highlight some of our projects, without having to put together a full writeup.  Stay tuned for regular updates to this thread!!


There's a few things I'd like to PRECEDE these pics with first of all:


1)
All polishing in these pictures
, is done with either one of the three polishers > Flex 3401, Rupes LHR21 Bigfoot, or occasionally Flex PE14-2 Rotary. The polishes used are either Adam's old 3-step system (no longer available, long gone), but the majority of these are done with Adam's new 2-step correction system & pads, Found here:



2)
All interior work in these pictures
, is handled by Adam's interior products. In our interior details, we introduce steam cleaning as an additional cleaning tool for the tight areas. But usually, in what I do, heavy cleansing is needed, therefore we go straight to this combo on the seats, steering wheels, and door panels:

-


3)
All engine bays in these pictures
, are cleaned & nourished with Adam's products. We believe in a non-greasy, non-attractive CONDITIONING treatment for the plastic and rubber components, not "cheap dressings" used by other shops. For healthy cleaning & conditioning, here's what we use:

-
-
-


4)
All photos taken are our property
, taken with no filter, no glazes, no waxes, no fillers. The paint pictures are taken RAW, to show pure results, unfiltered!!! We have the incredible great fortune, at Insane Paint Auto Detailing, to have a professional automobile photographer as part of our team/staff/posse (or whatever you wanna call it, lol). So any shots you see with "B Birdwell Photography" are courtesy of his mad skill. However, like always, they are undoctored.


We will start with our most recent project, a HIGHLY neglected 2004 Audi A4. Here it is, taped up before polishing, to show the soon coming 50/50 pic. HEAVILY oxidized hood, roof and trunk.

This is JUST after heavy compounding, we still had final polishing to do at this point.

These are just some general 50/50 pictures, of various paint corrections we've done. Again, these are shot RAW, after Adam's Correction Polish ONLY. No fillers, glazes, waxes, etc.

BAD trunk lid. This was just after initial compounding. Still had final polishing to do after this pic.

Some shots from a neglected 2013 Honda Goldwing F6B we did a few weeks ago. For a new bike, she was beat up pretty good. It wasn't in the budget to go for "perfect" so we just did our Light Polish Revival Service on this one. Still made about a 80-85% correction!

50/50 on the left saddlebag.

We realized we didn't get quite ALL of it out after this pic, so we obviously went back in & finished gettin' the crud, lol.

Here's a few from a 2009 Honda Accord, with 88k miles, that we have in the shop right now....

It's not in the budget, for this car to get "perfect." But with our Light Polish Revival Service, and Adam's Polishes, here's what we're getting!

Looks fantastic. I could never get in he detailing biz, knowing that they will destroy all that hard work as soon as it gets out of the shop. While I know you get paid regardless, it would be difficult for me to know that those results won't last long... But I guess I'm just pessimistic :)

I used to think that too buddy.....but when they come BACK....It's what builds loyalty and good clients, which equals $$$.

Thanks a ton Daddy-O!!  Shop pics are coooooming!  PROMISE!!  I've been waiting until we got to a "happy place" with the decor and arrangement of things.  And we will be to that point this week!!  On top of that, we have a cruise-in event this Saturday, so many pics will be taken and shared very soon!!!  Preciate the love Scott. :)

Did some work on a 2011 Jaguar XJL.  This car was built to compete in the class with BMW 7series & Audi A8 territory.  This was my first time getting up close and personal with one....loooooooooooooved it!!!  However, the dealership did one of their famous HACK job "buffs" on this girl.....
