I had these guys come and do a hand wash and hand wax of my Elise, and they did a really good job. I called them at 10 AM on a busy day and the fit me in by 3 PM, arriving on time and with all of the necessary equipment to do a high-quality wash and wax.

The results were impressive. They did the same service for my wife's Volkswagen GTI and got both cars done in our driveway in about an hour and a half. ($70/car). These guys know their products and technique and I would recommend them as a safe and high-quality outfit to have do mobile detail work if you need it. They told me that they had just done a gray track equipped Elise/Exige last week, don't know if that was anyone here?

Happy motoring,
MCDougieFresh

Sweet, even though I normally do all the detailing I don't have all the tools I need to do the job I want, that and the 3+ hours it takes me to do it makes me want to hire somebody once a year to get a good foundation wax and buffing then I can keep it from there.

Do they also clay bar and polish for an extra cost?

Yes, they offer full detailing including clay bar, polishing, scratch removal, all the customary offerings you would expect. He used to work at "Details by Mark"- A very quirky but expensive detail shop here in SE PDX that I've recently discovered to apparently "set the bar" for super high quality, meticulous approaching pathologically obsessive-neurotic level detailing. The day I contacted him he was actually at another detail shop that had overbooked themselves and had sub-contracted him to help clear out the backlog of cars. I only wanted the hand wash and hand wax this week so I can't personally vouch for the quality of their full detail, but the quality of work they did for me would make me believe that it is excellent. Blaine is totally a car guy. He showed me photos of his personal car collection and it was impressive. He mentioned that he and his crew go to Tigard cars and coffee regularly both for fun and for networking, so if you go, look for him. I can remember that he has a modded '07 BMW 650 (white) and a 1970's Porsche GT prototype car a'la Steve McQueen (yellow) of the 5 or more in his collection if that helps point him out, or just call him.

I'm definitely going to have them back for more services, including full detail at some point.

Oh, and yeah, exactly re: 3 hours plus sweat, grime etc. is why I've personally found it worthwhile to hire that out.

Perfect timing. I am looking to sell my Elise and need to get it detailed.

I emailed him for a quote and mentioned your post.

Thanks

John
