How long does the average detail take?
Posted 17 June 2009 - 08:33 AM
i'm linking this one because his buddy at carmax decided to flip the bird in the reflection:
No mention of the steps or products he used, but this is what he claims to have done in 3 hours:
Notice the **** ton of chips, now look outside in the cloud pic, not a damm chip in sight.
I did engine, rims , interior, exterior , full 3 pads, wetsanding, chips , you name it I did it. 3 hours
going back, this was his first post ->
process/product description for the mustang:
Washed, Clayed , Step 3 with polishing pad , Migs NXT wax
again, this idiot thinks it's funny to flip off the camera in the reflection:
Soooo....what does Autopia think?

..Soooo....what does Autopia think?
I think that it's impossible to judge the work given a) the lighting in the pics and the way things can look over the internet as opposed to IRL.
Even *IRL* I'd need very different lighting to evaluate the paint properly.
Eh...at some point you either have to take a leap of faith and believe that somebody has accomplished what they say they have...or you decide that you *don't* believe that.
I usually don't go so far as saying anybody's a liar...hey, sure... over the 'net everyone's ten feet tall and bulletproof But I will say that doing that amount of work in 3 hours would be mighty fast...and then there's the question of the *quality* of the work.
Touching up chips? Gee, how did he get the paint to dry so fast? Wetsanding? Wonder how long he spent taking ETG readings.
But hey, I take two hours to do a wash and that's when I'm working as fast as I can.

...but to answer the original post question: How long does the average detail take?: For me my average detail includes, wash, clay, AIO, then LSP, Interior vac, steam mats,dress panels, misc stuff. Working alone, 4-6 hours. If i have help, its cut in half.
