Thread: Detailing, a young mans game

  1. #1

    Detailing, a young mans game

    LOL, finally finished up the car today, took me 3+ days, forgot to mention, I'm old & slow............but that puppy is looking great I might add..........forgot to buy the 3" orange pads, but otherwise it came out great...........

    Man I don"t know how you guys do it............the top and hood, was no problem, but that kneeling to do the sides was killing me., even the beer didn"t take the pain away. LOL

    Wanted to thank everyone that helped me out with this...........so now I'm gonna knock out the other car.

    Hd speed & Poxy, looking real good............you can tell in that last pic I have some modeling experience. LOL

    Would have been done faster, but some beer was involved..........you know us Wisc folks need the juice. LOL

    I know what you mean. With each passing year the same car seems more and more daunting; arthritic joints are the inevitable enemy.

    ��. So true. How can using a polisher result in so much soreness the next day! Phil

    Car came out great, nice depth! Don't forget to dress those tires, can I suggest "a tire coating"💡

    Invest in a mechanic's roller seat to save your back. I'm on my third one. Finally sprung for a pro model and it is well worth it.

    I hear you on the bending over. car looks great. I sometimes find it's easier if I go through the trouble of jacking up the car. when I got the car jacked up I try & take advantage with some detailing. as far as my pickup that sits a little higher & is easier. I'll be 68 next week & it don't get any easier.

    As someone (also) of an 'advanced age'...4 words...just take your time.

    It is a real b***h to have accept that we just ain't kids any more (damn!).
