Detailing Mom's Alero. Before And After

Recommended Posts

OK so I said I would give yous a before and after of the detailing of Mom's car. I'll share with you now the before.

Hoping to fix teh dash-liner curl, but it's likely too far gone as it is very dried out.

Thanks. I will have this thing looking showroom fresh in less than 5 hours. At least I hope to, because that's my time span I'm workin with LOL. The paint is gettin dull, it's wet now so it doesn't show that well. Maybe I can get a better shot in the morning.

Yeah it is! I detailed it for her 2 or 3 years ago. Hasn't even had a bath other than the rain since then!

Side-Note: So far tonight I've been able to get the 5+ year old sap off pretty easy.

LOL. Truth be told, I probably wouldn't wash it hardly at all, either. It's a giant hunk of crap at this point. So much stuff is wrong with it. Which is why I'm waiting until Mom finally gets another car, if ever. I have......... ideas.........

Where do I find this Nano? It made that Oldsmobile go from s**t, to a beautiful like-new car.

Looks like Ardex detailing supplies are hard to come by unless you know a distributor. :blink: I was able to find one online...

That's just it. The only way I use it is because we use it in the detail dept at work.
