    Re: Polished vehicle not noticed!

    I think people notice a 'polished car' more when it has some age on it.

    Wife's car is a 2000 Subby and she (and I) have had quit a few folks ask, "What year is that?" Maybe being 'black and shiny' helps, but they are surprised it is that old.

    It used to drive me nuts after I would spend a better part of a weekend detailing my wife's car and all she would say or ask is thanks for washing my car! WTH! There are a lot of people that only care that their car gets them from point A to B my wife included! LOL Don't feel bad been there done that..

    At least my wife appreciates the level of effort I go to on our vehicles...mostly because she watched her father take such good care of their vehicles. My daughter is getting it, too. The other day she asked me to work on the interior of her car....the dash had dust on it.

    Funny story. A few years ago I bought a 1991 300ZX that had been sitting a while. The finish was in dire need of help. During the week or two I was driving it around before detailing it, I got waves and thumbs-up left and right, and people would frequently compliment the car or ask me about it at gas stations etc. I was very surprised as the car definitely looked its age.

    After correcting to a lovely deep shine on that candy red paint, hardly ever a word again from the general public.

    To this day it's one of the most baffling things to me.

    OP - if noone noticed that means you didn't make it shiney enough ��

    Jk. On a serious note, my whole family always notices when I detail our cars. Probably because I make them help. My kids double as creepers and hit the low spots.

    Good idea having the kids help, at least then they get a little taste on how much work is involved in making a vehicle look great, and get schooled at the same time

    I have a 8 week old car in my shop, a $60.00 Ford Expedition , black in color.
    Lady brought it to the swirl -o-magic and wrecked the paint.
    Inside is a total loss, nasty and it's only two months old, she drove two hours to me to get it corrected.
    So sad!

    It's only worth $60.00 after 8 weeks?
