    Got my 91 SC professionally detailed yesterday.

    Anyone who knows me is aware of how much I hate washing my cars. Forget about waxing them or cleaning the interior that only happens if my wife does it. After installing a new drive shaft and more recently a new set of wires and plugs to get rid of a high rpm misfire, it was looking pretty dirty. So when Kathy asked what I wanted for Father's Day I told her I wanted to get my 91 SC professionally detailed.

    The guy did the interior including the cloth seats and carpet, some type of three step deal to the exterior paint that included clay bar some wax stuff, buffers and carnauba wax. It's the first time in 6 years the rubber has all been removed from the rear fenders. He also hand cleaned everything under the hood. It came out looking great and it was the perfect gift. Here is a video I took after picking it up last night.

    What was cost, if we can ask - $200? Wheels and tires too, I assume. Came to you or dropped it off at a shop? Hard to tell in the dim light, but it does appear to shine.

    But yeah, clay bar FTW.

    Dropped it off at a shop a couple miles away where our neighbor's son has a detailing business. Cost was $250 and yes it included the wheels and tires.

    I'm actually looking for a 35th Anniversary car cover for when it's sitting in the garage.

    Congrats on the gift.

    Its white it looks the same as it always has. Sorry Kathy. Guess that's why you bought a white car so you wouldn't have to clean it all the time.

    It's just like the clay buff and wax I just spent a whole day doing on my wifes car. Its the new tectonic silver. It looks the same after as it did before, but it sure does feel a ton better.

    Outside looks nice. You know it is shining in real life when you can see it in a video! Let's see how the interior and under the hood look.

    Todd Jelle made it and brought them to a meet we had in STL area a long time ago. Don't know if they are still available.
