    Hey all,

    Been a long time since I posted any of my recent work- re-locating, new job, and now moving to another company means detailing remains to be done on the weekend.

    Up here is an extremely well taken care of XFR with a special history to it. The previous owner kept it in amazing condition out in the west and it is now taken care of meticulously by a good friend of mine.

    The aim of this project was to achieve a correctional level as close to 100% as possible and then apply a good layer of Opti 2.0 to aid with its future washes etc.

    Total time was just under 20 hours and most of the body came out perfect with Sonax PF/ Orange foam combo on my Rupes, Flex, and PC.

    *I did not have me SLR with me this weekend so during and after shots were taken by the client.

    Again, I didn't have my SLR however a phone was able to capture the defects pretty darn well!

    Much better clarity

    Overall, the clear was very easy to work with- much more so than some other new gen Jag colors- I really enjoyed working on this one!

    Later on that evening after some "enthusiastic" driving on some NC backroads- I gotta admit I've driven a lot of M Models= comparing this sedan to the 2 e60 M5's i've driven... I would pick the R 10/10.

    Note- NONE of the after photos were altered in any way- straight from the lens as always!

    Thanks for looking!

    Awesome locations for pictures Dan! I do like this Jag a lot, not something you see everyday. You really made the flakes pop on this one, I guess thats what 20 hr details get you :D
