Cosmin, is English your second language? Just a friendly tip, try organizing your sentences better, I got a headache from trying to read what you wrote.

Really nice results.
I saw the Makita in one of the photos..cool.
I'm surprised you used Megs NXT as your LSP. I thought maybe a carnauba or some Collinite.
Strong work...Blue looks stunning.. I have Silverstone and my results just dont give that "bam pow" look.

i use makita most of the time for med-heavy correction / scratches and meg G110 DA for finish or light correction.
g110 is safer but i like rotary better.
my next step will be a cyclo for finishing

Yep, this was my car that Cosmin detailed about a month ago. I couldn't believe how good the car came out. My car is less than a year old, and even though I'm very careful washing it, it's amazing how many swirls and micro-scratches accumulate very quickly. i also didn't realize what an effect they had on the color and shine of the paint. When Cosmin finished, I remembered exactly why I bought this color. These pics don't even do justice to how good the car looked in the setting sun. The great thing is how much easier it is to keep the car clean now.

For those of you in the Houston or Dallas areas, I can't recommend Cosmin enough. He really went the extra mile on my detail (even taking the time to show me ways to improve my washing technique), and his rates are very, very reasonable. If you want more info, feel free to shoot me a PM.

I understood well what was done. Fantastic job! I almost regret not getting Interlogos blue because with work you can make it look sooooooooooo good. I detailed my AW a couple of weeks ago and it looks nice, but it doesn't pop of have the depth of blue.

Yeah, I definitely underestimated how hard it would be to keep the IB looking nice. It's not quite as bad as black, but it's not far off either. It's all worth it though when it's clean. When Cosmin finished with it, it looked even better than when I first picked it up from the dealer. It was a much deeper looking color.
