Detailing My ClubSport
« on: 01 March 2021, 16:31 »
Hi, all.

Would anyone be able to give me some suggestions for detailers who are not a million miles from the Manchester area, please?  I am looking for a new car ceramic prep and have tried a couple of places already but both have an 8-10 week lead time.

Thanks in advance.

You may get some help with this but the detailing section is nigh on dead these days. Although you did the right thing posting it here, you might want to try posting in presumably the MK8 section or have a look in the forums on detailingworld. Or try the detailing forum on cleanyourcar - https://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/forum/viewforum.php?f=18&sid=af25cc04abeee87b9ddc87656ecbbbce

Ah, ok.  Thanks, Watts.

I actually managed to find a guy - https://www.offyourmarks.com/ - who is booked up until mid-April as far as week-day slots go but has said that he will agree to get me in this weekend at short notice, as it's a new car and it's important to get it protected ASAP.  Can't fault that dedication to his craft really.  He has quoted just under £400 all in and he also has a courtesy car I can use while the work is being done.  I have to say that's a pretty good first impression in my book.  He has also got a new GTI in white on order, coincidentally.  :grin:

I will report back after it's done and post some pictures, of course!  :smiley:

I wonder if he’s chosen white so he doesn’t have to bother spending as much time detailing his own car.

Here he is, fresh out of the bay after a new car prep and ceramic coat.

True to form, it started raining around ten minutes after this and there's already mud up the sides but at least he's protected now.

*Edit* Just realised I didn't edit out my plate. I'll post from my PC later! 😁

You’ve left the few of us who still venture onto the Detailing forum board waiting in eager anticipation  to see your shiny pride and glory!

Sod’s law says the weather isn’t going to work in your favour when you’ve just invested in getting your car professionally detailed. At least with a ceramic coating the dirt should just slide off your car now and it should be easy to keep it looking spick and span :smiley:.

Look forward to seeing the pictures.
