    I know it's a little early to think about this, but has anyone had a great experience for a Spring detailing shop locally? I've done some by hand this year but I'm wondering about a professional shop to really clean up and polish the exterior and I should think the carpet needs a good shampoo as well. Aside from the dealers, what about Autowerks or others?

    Right near you, at the southwest corner of 45 and 83 in Mundelein (right behind the Shell station), is the Sunshine Auto Spa. Paul Lawrence has been doing my cars (Ferrari x 6, Lambo, Aston x 2, Maserati x 2, Porsche x 5) for years. He does a fantastic job and it's right in your neighborhood. I'm just a little bit east of you in the northwest corner of Buffalo Grove, just east of Route 83 and north of Route 22. Paul's phone number is (847) 837-0325.

    I'm looking for an quality wax for my Porsche in the Geneva/St. Charles/Batavia area. I really need someone to get out 10 years of swirls and scratches who knows what they're doing (Not me!) Any suggestions for the far western suburbs? Thanks!

    What's the ballpark $$$ for these types of high-end details?

    How bad is it badges? I've always found that a good coat of Zymol cleaner then wax solved most similar problems. Pick some up and we'll have a spring waxing party at my house!

    I clayed it yesterday and put a good waxing to it and removed most of the swirls. It's not horrible, just years of improper washing and waxing that need to be corrected. Griots Garage scares me because everytime I look at their catalog I can feel the money flying out of my wallet! Has anyone got any recommendations for a good 6" orbital? Griots has one that I've been eyeballing but I've been cheaping out for a while now.

    Funny thing was while doing this, a neighbor pulled up in his black Corvette which was spotless. I mentioned how nice it looked and asked who he uses. He tells me he has THE guy, Jason! That Jason must be good, because he says everyone on his Corvette forum recommends him as well.

    On a side note, how come there is no Detailing/Cleaning Section here on F-Chat?

    Now that it's no longer too early to think about spring and detailing cars, I can highly recommend Continental's detailing services. This is the first time I have ever trusted someone other than myself to do the work and it came out great as evidenced below. Now, who wants to put in an offer on this spectacular looking vehicle?

    I've got Jason coming out to my house on the 12th to detail my car and a neighbors Corvette. My neighbor could not speak highly enough of Jason and the job he's done on his car in the past. I'll update this post with my review.

    Neil, didn't you get out and wax her up last month? I'm dropping off mine at his place on Thursday and will probably pick it up on Saturday. 'Clockem', when are you dropping off the Porsche?

    Picked mine up on Sunday AM. Absolutely amazing job and what a difference. Jason did both the interior carpets and leather as well as HUGE improvement of a clear coat restoration. I did all the glaze and wax, etc last year and thought it looked pretty good on a sunny day but here's the difference, while I could get a shine on the paint, it now looks like the car was just completely resprayed. There is so much more depth and it's hard to describe it but there is now a clarity to the color that is amazing. There is no way in the world that i could have done that. Jason's attention to detail is also fantastic, every little nook of old wax is cleaned out it's really suc a huge improvement and it looks beautiful. I also have to say that Jason is one of the nicest and most accomodating guys, the drop off and pick up kept changing for me and he was always happy to accomodate my schedule. Now I'm just hesitant to take it out, nah, just kidding, went for a long drive on Sunday just to enjoy the sunshine and the glare.
