    A nice relaxing end to a busy week with another maintenance plan car in for a protection top up - or at least it should have been! This one is also on a quarterly plan and the owner hadn't the time to wash it at all since the last treatment - so this is approx 4,000 miles worth of **** stuck to the paint!

    I wouldn’t have usually bothered posting a simple detail like this, but I promised the owner I'd shame him with the before pics!

    That must taking liberties with your service, if a person drove a car without servicing it properly and then returned it to the manufacture with a complaint about the engine they’d by shown the door, you’re far too good to your customers, wish I lived closer, then I could take the pi$$ also :sm4:

    As always a great job and a great read :icon_thumright:

    You've got to take the rough with the smooth; in all honesty, a thick build up of grime is of no real concern, because the underlying paint still looks in great condition once clean. It's customers that ruin our paint correction work in the space of few months after coming in that do my head in! :tapedshut:

    *hangs head in shame*

    My work-bus has been washed twice in 10,000 miles :blush:

    My excuse is the wheels look much better gun-metal than they do brilliant silver! ;)
