This customer came to me after having his car previously detailed from a quite well known "detailer" in Adelaide. I have get quite a few calls every week letting me know a detailer had made it worse then what it started.

I started off washing the car and you could tell it hadn't been clay barred 4 weeks ago and still had contaminates on it.

wow, the before shots look terrible. How this person can call themselves a detailer is beyond words. You have certainly brought back the lustre in that Mazda Hamish. Top job.

nice work Hamish, the previous detailer if you want to call them that must have used scotch brite to polish the car. just got the golf done by David @ reflect effect and it looks amazing.
