Hey kevin,

I've used Detailing Depot in Oakville a few times a couple of years ago. Tim is the owner and he's good and pretty reasonable.

I'm a good detailer in the GTA :)

PM me with what you want done, and i'll get back to you with a quote

I'm significantly cheaper than most shops from the get go, and I've worked on a number of high end cars including Caddilac CTS-V, Jaguar XJR, BMWs Mercedes and my own personal Supra TT

Thanks guys. I'm looking for somebody who can do a really amazing job on a black car. I used to know someone who could make black paint look like a mirror.

So far I've found this guy, who look like he does pretty good work.

re: Detailing Shop

Well, the past few years the Toronto Supra club has held their annual show and shine event at a high end detailing shop in North York called Autobahn. I've never had my car detailed there, but from what I gather they seem to cater to high automobiles like Ferraris, Porsches, BMWs, Hummers etc... so you know they must do a pretty damn good job. Just don't expect them to price match other detailing shops though :)

We had detailed this client's RS before as well as his 997.2 RS so we were familiar with the paint as well as the condition of the car. Always a pleasure to see this one and work on it as well. The paint was looking just a little rough and we were hoping a 1 stage polish would be enough but in the end we did a non aggressive 2 stage polish which was protected afterwards with Opti Gloss Coat.

As usual, hope you enjoy the pics!

After the wheel cleaning and 2 bucket car wash we clayed the paint with the Nano Skin Mitt




Brought it in and masked off the rubber trim


Then took paint measurements




1st stage polish before


1st stage polish after with a bit of haze

2nd stage polish before


2nd stage polish after and the haze all gone


And a shot of us polishing




Cleaning out the residue from the edge of the stone guard with a tooth pick


Then alcohol wipe down




Applying Opti Gloss Coat




And finally the finished pics. I wish so badly that the sun was out to show just how glossy the paint was.




This was the best glossy pic I could take and it didn't even come close




Nonetheless I hope you guys enjoyed seeing the process on a rare colored RS.

Thanks!

I love this color! From pics in magazines etc I wasn't sure how I felt about Austin Yellow, but in person it is so beautiful! This client had brought us his previous Evo X but had sold that and purchased this. It was fairly new so all that was needed was a 1 stage polish.

I really wish the sun was out for the pics to do the color justice but it is what it is.
