Some pics after a detailed detail

I took my car to Steve at Show Car Detail here in the northern suburbs of Chicago. He did an awesome job and the car looks amazing. I did a full detail that included the exterior, interior, wheels, and engine. Plus he took out some scratches and paint chips. It ran me about $400 but i think it was worth it. The car looks great. I would recommend anyone use him he has a couple locations and he does it at his house. PM me for his details (address, phone number, etc).

Anyways, here are some photos, my battery was dead on my good camera, so i took these with my other camera. I will have more in a few days:

Looks really good!

As for the engine bay cleaning: I use Simple Green because it is completely organic and it has low PH. When I clean the engine bay, I use a regular garden hose with the attachment set on "Mist". All you need is a small wool brush and the engine bay will be clean in no time.

Looks super clean. I'm liking the gloss black V710s a lot on your car.
