    "Why should I detail my new car? I just got it!" Common things we hear a lot as detailers. To this day 1000's of cars later I've never seen a new car I couldn't make look better. I stole this quote from my 9th degree buddy "Showroom quality????? I'd never do that poorly!". Here was a perfect example, this Model S has only 600 miles and the customer was little un sure as to why it needed any prep work before a cquartz finest application.... Well pictures speak 1000 words!

    Its new... Totally just needs to be washed and it'll be perfect

    After a wash decon I could inspect the paint. No special lighting needed to see the damage here

    With lighting you can see there are some big issues here!

    The hood was covered in major rids and staining from what ever was left on the surface for extended periods

    This thread should be renamed, why not to buy a black car.

    Looking good, Joe!

    You did a fantastic job on my P85 correction and Opticoat before the memorial day parade last year!
