1st TIME GETTING JEEP DETAILED :)
 
Wowzers!!!

I've never, ever gotten an automobile detailed before but since I love my Jeep so much, I just had to.

I washed it Friday and it looked lackluster.

I've never detailed my Jeep before so I just thought I'd try it before I tackle any trails this winter.

I know some of you love dirty Jeeps(I freakin' love them) but a detailed Jeep is just as SEXY!!!

Here you go:
I don't like dressed up tires on a Jeep either but I LOVE THE WAY THESE WHEELS TURNED OUT: WOOT!!!!!!!

looks good. I do enjoy my Jeep all detailed.

Coyote_94YJ 11-10-2008 03:30 PM

Wow...That looks very nice. Almost makes me want to get a TJ.

4Jeepn 11-10-2008 03:30 PM

Clearly a photochop......

looks good.

Looks real good. I did that before it got to cold here.

Beautiful! I do mine about 2-3 times a year. Buddies always bust my eggs for it too.

I guess it's working cuz I used to do it 4-5 times a year...

Nice Jeep!

Thanks for all the compliments guys!!

You rule!!!

By the way, how much do you guys pay for your detail jobs? My wife got pissed because she knew someone that would've done it cheaper ($90) but her guy doesn't shampoo nor buff nor clay, nor undercarriage work. I called around and this guy was the best.

Two guys worked on the Jeep for 5 hours straight. I paid 160 for it. It was worth every penny.

It aint cheap but it sure as hell is worth it.
Seriously, all day, I was gazing out the window today just admiring it. A few of my neighbors slowed down to check it out. Man, I really love the way this thing looks; IT'S JUST BEAUTIFUL!!!

I was looking forward all day to driving this thing. I took it out tonight to get some DVDs and boy did it make me feel better.

It's so shiny. I had to avert my eyes. Actually it's just because I'm jealous. DD needs a bath.

Looks like you are all set for the prom!!! :D:D:D

Looks great!~ I always wash and wax mine after getting it dirty. (I'm kinda anal) It's either real dirty or real clean, no inbetween. Thanks for the pics, now I'll have to go detail both of mine.

I love that blue...so much in fact, I bought mine in that very same color.... I haven't seen the paint under all that mud in almost 4 months....

very inspirational..... now I feel compelled to go wash and detail mine.

TJ-Jeepin 11-11-2008 12:15 PM

Had a '00 Solar Yellow TJ Sport I kept detailed...purdy yella 'n all that. I have a '99 Blue TJ now that prolly will never get detailed...just scratched!
We do keep the Liberty pretty well cleaned cuz it's her daily driver, but it still gets wheeled.

Yours looks damn good though! http://billpellman.com/Emoticons/bigtup.gif

I'm calling BS on that one, I have it on good authority you are single handedly responsible for keeping that car wash down in effort in business :D

Haha!!

Go for it. I want more pics of sweet lookin' jeeps!!!!

By the way, I've never seen the paint this healthy and sweet.

Washing it after mudding or trailing would look good but not this good.

All swirl marks: GONE!! After mudding, I would wash it but little tiny dirty pebbles were left so it would slowly scratch and take away from the luster of the paint.

Now, after detail; one word: SHINY!!!!

I will admit, I like to contribute to the local economy as much as I can. The do-it-yourself car wash is broken near my place. I totally forgot about the one in Effort... Now that gas prices are coming down, I can venture out of town...

I do all of my own (basic) detailing right here in the garage. "Silver" looks beautiful when shes all cleaned up. Not to the extreme of the OP though! But I like my girl pur'dee.

Hedonist,

That looks great. What size lift and tires are you running? I just got my 04 and I look through the 'net and catalogs and check all these cool bumpers and accessories that I want to buy then I look at a jeep like yours - basically stock with a nice lift and tires and in the end..... that is exactly how I want mine to look. Simple, clean, capable.

$160 was a good price for everything. I charge anywhere between $100-$170 depending on vehicle and whats involved. The price you got for $90 probably was a wash, wax, vacuum, and clean window, (most only do the front window. Your wife may be pissed, but she needs to realize what stuff costs. These cleaners and waxes are up there now, not to mention $160 for 2 people at 5 hours, the detailer really made no money. Looks really good.

dj_chizzle 11-17-2008 07:47 PM

that is one sweet looking clean ass jeep. congrats!

Thanks buddy.

I'm running a 4" lift with 33X12.5X15 size tires.


Good luck and post pics of your build.

I know. I love built Jeeps but I also love clean lifted almost stock Jeeps.

It drives so SWEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!!!!!!!

You run a detail shop?
A buddy and I owned one years ago but we just did car lot stock, we didn't do general public. hedonist got a heck of a deal, we were getting $75 to $100 a pop back in the 80's
