    lol "treat it like it was your own."
    I think you treated the car BETTER than he did from all the swirl marks I see.

    Great job on the revival!

    Yea well it looked like the vehicle had never been detailed before, I mean the sworls and scratches on this vehicle were impresive :gidiup: I'm just glad I was able to turn it around and I was satisfied with the results :thumb:

    Than kyou for the feed back :peace:

    Thank you Denzil, this vehicle made me sweat like crazy...but then again I sweat easy :shurg:

    Glad you enjoyed it :chest:

    Thank you for the feed back Bri, as to how I removed the scuff marks, well to be honest I just scrubed and scrubed and scrubed some more. Really that's all I did, the plastic was scratched up but I was albe to remove as much dirt as possible and it turned out prity good.

    Glad you enjoyed the write up :peace:

    Very nice work Nica. You really think that Megs APC diluted is still too strong for leather? It supposedly has leather softeners in it.

    Thank you joe for the feed back, very much appreciated my friend :peace:

    Thank you Crossroad :chest:

    Glad you enjoyed it Fox, thank you for the feed back very much appreciated :peace:

    Thank you for the feed back Reflect. Well to be honest I'm no chemist or anything like that but Meg's APC is strong and I'm just cautious that's all. On a friends old vehicle I used it on leather and the leather looked okay but I don't like gambling with other peoples vehicles. I tend to stick to what has worked for me in the past. Besides Meg's APC has a high PH value so that's what makes me a bit cautious but that's just me though :shrug:

    Oh and I didn't know Meg's APC has leather softeners in it :confused:

    I'm pretty sure it does, granted we are speaking of the interior APC, the green stuff.

    :nod: yup that's the stuff I use the green Meg's APC, I honestly didn't know it had leather softeners...good to know, I should give it a go but on my Volvo perhaps :shead: it needs a good interior job anyways :thumb:
