Anywho, I really love the way the red pops mang! Looks soooo deep and reflective. Mang I miss my Laser Red Cobra. :(
I have spent countless hours working on my old Mustangs and could never hit that level of clean. Good work.

Hows the buisiness going? You detailing full time now?

If I could find People that would hire me to do enough cars I would do this full time....

..... Right now I keep getting bombarded with people who Mistake my "Art" For a "Car Wash" and expect Car Wash prices....

I am not a car wash.....

Only Handz gets me to freaking Google a "Porter Cable 7424" because i have no idea what it is, and then search to see who has the best prices on said item!! LOL! The forecast calls for rain here tomorrow, and i don't even care, i want to go out and do some mad detailing right now :nice:

Great car Handz, keep up the awesome detailing :hail2:

Handz, are you able to say what ballpark you charge people for your service? Id spend a decent amount of cash right now to get my car looking like yours.

Too bad im on the opposite end of the country :notnice:

I've got a feeling of what he charges, and it is worth it. We have a guy here in Houston called the "waxman". When he does a car, it usually wins in a car show. Everybody uses him here.

Being able to do work like this takes a lot of talent and practice.

Ain't that the truth. I'm with EvilTurkey on the 'Being stuck on the opposite end of the country' thing. After I get a new hood, bumper, and bullitt scoops, I will be paying someone handsomely to detail my car since I just don't have the time or patience to do it anymore. I've got about a grand worth if crap from Autopia and a few other detailing sites, but my paint needs some SERIOUS correction. I'd be quite capable of keeping the car clean once it's there. It's the 'getting it there' that's the hard part.

Anyway, car looks effing amazing, Handz! :nice:

Very nice bro your car looks brand new! Do you buy your stuff online or do you go to a store to get that pinnacle wax? I have been using the Meguairs and I thought it was great but the stuff you used really makes it look great I want to see my car with it!

I'm not sure what's wrong with my head that I need to get it straight :shrug: This seems to be another Handz' "Look at me! I can wash and wax cars!" thread. Am I the only one who thought about calling him out on this???
To answer your question...yes you are. Obviously you have some sort of history with the guy but it's time to move on. This is a Mustang enthusiasts site and anything that pertains to that subject is welcomed. You don't seem to understand that but maybe we can help.

Back to the topic. Nice work. Wish I had the patience. I worked on my truck yesterday trying to get hard water spots cleaned but requires way more effort than I have the gumption for.

Once again, another great job. Don't worry bout Moon, he obviously took the threads the wrong way which resulted in his jealousy. How else would you explain it? I actually the threads useful as I seem to be washing my car frequently now. I have an accout at autogeek but I just don't use the site as much so keep up the good work and I also appreciate the clarity of the way you show what products you use. Btw, how'd that wax work for you? I have a rio 99 Cobra and am always lookin' for new stuff

Bro mad props on a job well done, i thought i was crazy every time i washed/detailed my car, even when i did it right after a blizzard and the water froze to the car haha I use to detail on the side hundred bucks a pop, but then the economy went in the *****ter, I use simoniz and meguiers will be doing a massive detail before the first car show @ cedar beach after memorial day. Moon dont Flame me for having a "Stock" Mustang, aight, show some respect, i may be new to the site, but def aint new to forums in general you def screwed yourself with getting any kind of help on here, a true gear head takes pride in every aspect of their vehicle, from the deep glossy finish to the tire valve caps, check yourself next time.

It's been forever since I heard somebody use the word gumption :eek: I'm not flaming anyone's ability, I don't know how else to put it. I recognize the talent and skills, but do we constantly need to be reminded of them? I don't think I'm getting through. Oh well.

I just bought Turtle Wax's Black Box, and a $40 buffer/polisher from Autozone. We'll see how well they do tomorrow when I detail it. I should have pics up. Not crossing my fingers.

I think the point is .... "if you don't have anything good to say/write .... don't"
Appreciation of his efforts does not equate to being a 'nutswinger'.
Those that appreciate his 'art' look forward to his threads, because they can be informative. Especially in 'how' he does it and with 'what' products.
That is worth the viewing, not your comments.

Props to a clean SN95!!

Handz, I've said it many times but I'll say it again, you do the most amazing detailing work I've ever seen. I can't help but respect a man who cares for his car this much.

Now, want to do this treatment to my WS6? :p
