    Honda Accord Coupe gets cleaned prior to it's For Sale Sign going on it

    So a friend of mine, Greg has been out and about enjoying his recently coated Civic Si Sedan and is in the market to sell his wifes Super Clean 2015 Honda Accord Coupe. Coupes just don't work as well for infant seats I guess

    Prior to putting it up he opted for my Clean & Prep for Sale or Trade Package to get both the interior and exterior made like new.
    If you are interested in a GREAT looking coupe with mid 60k on the ODO, this one is definitely worth contacting him about. The inside is a STRONG 9/10 and the exterior only has a few very minor blemishes that any 5yr old daily would have.

    Thanks again Greg & Tiffany for once again trusting in my work and CONGRATULATIONS! to them both on the birth of their new Baby Girl!

    Here are a handful of pics for your viewing pleasure.







    The end result on the Exterior is a strong 8/10. Again, this is not a paint correction service, but it does remove oxidation, enhances the gloss and dramatically improves the paint clarity.












    Exterior Process:

    • Wash/Decon with Iron-X and Nano Mitt Medium
    • Polished with a Rupes Mille & a Nano both teamed with Yellow Mille Pads & a Flex 3401 with Orange Hexlogic Pads and CarPro Essence
    • Polished with Sonax Paint Cleaner AIO using a Flex 3401 and L.C.'s Orange Hybrid Force Pads
    • Glass polished with Griot's Orange cutting pad and Griot's Fine Glass Polish
    • Glass Sealed with Rust-Oleum Never Wet for Glass
    • Tires Dressed with Meguiar's Hyperdressing
    • Trim dressed with WETS and wear applicable such as the grill and cowling, Meg's D4510 Plastic & Vinyl Spray was used
    • Lower Grill & Side vents along with bits Under the hood treated with Meg's D4510 Plastic & Vinyl Spray




    Now onto the Interior Pics. Overall, it wasn't too bad. just needed a strong vacuum and a leather cleaning & treatment




    It cleaned up really nice. I love the two-tone interior.

    One of the more underrated services out there: Just a general re-fresh of things. With the exception of people on the forums and others like us, most people have no desire to pay for or care about a full two-three step correction services. Sometimes, a quick paint refresh and an interior touch up is all they're looking for.

    Agree. My popular offerings are the lower to mid-tier ones. Especially this year it seems due to the unemployment and economic matters that abound. I still have a number of higher end deals mind you but the lower end and smaller items are really picking up. I can actually knock-out these very quickly and make more per hour too. I'm putting together a push this year to do more $300-400 jobs vs higher end more pricey ones. Less time, easier and more per hour.

    It's interesting because I think dollars to time wise, the lower end jobs do net you more money unless you're only prepping concours cars or something. Other wise, I think the full polish and coat isn't as much dollars per hour because of the time it takes and what not.

    But the full on polish and coat sure makes us feel good when we look at the end result though...

    I use a variety of cleaning solutions. Very little of anything really. I try and use mostly steam and just water. The tornador units I have, both the Black and the Velocity Vac, make quick work of a lot of things. Carpet like this comes perfectly clean and to freshen it up I can use the tornador to blast in a mild solution/very lightly scented anything to make it fresh and new.

    Towel wise, inside, cheap microfiber from the dollar store. Bags of 30 for like $8-10. They aren't good for paint but for cleaning plastics, carpet, leather, etc. they work great. I usually keep 2-3 bags of them in my overflow and buy them once per year. I just stocked up in fact.
