The car was one years old when I bought it second hand. It had been taken good care of, but I wanted some extra protection and get rid of too much wash swirls -as can be seen here.

Very nice work! Are you a professional detailer? How many hours did you spend on this job?

Thanks XJL, but I can not take credit for this job. It was done by a professional detailer that I have used on some previous cars, and I have always been very satiesfied with the result. One reason is that the treatment last for a long time (years) as long as I treat the car correct when I wash it.


He loves his work and was very happy that he was given the opertunity to work on an F-type, as there are not many of them in Norway (I think there are only 3 or 4 F-type R in totall so far). He also has a great interest in British cars, so he did spend more hours on the car than what was really neccessary. He asked if he could have the car for a week, and I got a (very nice) fixed price, so I told him that was absolutely fine by me (and no - he did not spend some of that time driving it It was not outside his garage untill I picked it up).


Totall time used was 45 hours, and you can see a few more pics a bit down on his Facebook site here:

As you can see I also allowed him to use a photo of my car on his front page.


And here you can see a full set of photos with more details of the total job that he did:

In 2 or 3 years time, I am shure I will visit him again for some "refreshing", and I also buy the products I need for normal "wash and care" from him - including a very handy "quick detailer" from GTechniq. Spray on the car when it is wet after a wash, and wipe/dry off with a micro cloth. It's quick and easy and it makes the current treatment (coating) last a lot longer (and it also removes what is left of bugs and insects in the front of the car, as they don't get stuck so hard on the exsisting coating).
