Great job and thanks for the writeup and photos.

Just wondering, do you instruct the owners on better wash techniques and/or sell them maintenance products?

Thanks!! Nothing was really done to the vinyl, it was washed and clayed, but that was it. It was actually in pretty poor shape, but you need to be super close to see it. The vinyl is starting to crack all over the place.

^Thanks! Yes - I do both! I always send them a "thank you"/follow up email with a link to Todd Cooperider's "How to wash your car without causing swirl marks" and also provide them with a list that I created of what I consider "essential routine maintenance products" and tell them if they ever need to purchase anything then I can provide a discount on whatever they need... surprisingly not many people take me up on that offer though.

There is most definitely a post-engine bay shot... here it is again

Great job and yes it could be in a car magazine.
Question.

How well does Meg's MF cutting pads work compared to others and do they hold up?
I've always thought about trying them.

The car looks stunning dude

MF Cutting pads are the best cutting pad I have used... compared to a foam cutting pad, they cut better, faster, and finish down better. There are some tricks to help increase their life, but overall they are pretty darn durable. One small annoyance is that you have to clean them after each section (note section, not panel). I have never used MF finishing pads, I feel like foam provides a perfect finish so I haven't felt the need to try anything else.
