Barry Theal of presidential details In PA, Dave Saunders in NJ - those two are in your area

Its normally an hourly rate anywhere from 50-75/hr, sometimes with enough jobs done like that it can be priced by the job in the 800-1500 range

I do it probably 20% of my details...I just dont always have the time to document it so I dont post them up all the time. Seems like once I am in a groove, I forget I have a camera with me. I'll be sure to do a full write up of the F430 I have next week or the following week.

If you gave a reputable detailer $1000-1500, you better believe you are not going to recognize your car when you get it back! its usually a 2-3 day ordeal

Very nicely done. I have a quick question, does anyone know how the bottom air ducts were painted red? What are the steps to paint the bottom air ducts red? Is their a sanding procedure?

Thanks

The ducts are wrapped.

The detail was very detailed and it took a week.

Great work. I don't think I've ever seen anyone foam the engine before. The end result was fantastic.

Car looks great! I like those red ducts a lot - creative. You should tell your buddy to try aquapel instead of rain-x - it will last 6-12 months depending on conditions. Huge fan of the product.
