That's a huge improvement!  Looks great.  I'm guessing it will sell quickly.

Thanks! It went in the showroom today, so the clock is now ticking.

That hood was wrecked.  You need to start asking for commission since your work is a big part of why they're selling.  If this one sells, it's not a coincidence.  Even half a percent of selling price. 

Nice work!

Thanks, and yes, the thought had crossed my mind. Can you think of a better way to prove that point than this one selling quickly now?    :om:

Here's an interesting one. It's a lease return 2018 Camry with less than 20,000 miles on it. How much damage could one possibly do in that short of a period of time? You might think not too much and you'd be about half right. The interior was actually pretty decent. The outside, um, not so much. Virtually every panel had some kind of defect that required special attention. But, since it was Pearl White, it was both forgiving and hid remaining defects well. Yea, I think this one will sell pretty easily now.

This one might be my favorite.  And that's saying something since I'm completely over white, especially pearl white.

I forgot that I took a picture of the plum RAV4 when it came back for it's final prep after a week in the showroom. Click on the pic and look at the driver side. Nice huh? That's probably why it sold.



If you were to ask me what I'd put in the showroom next, this would be my recommendation. It's another 2017 RAV4, absolutely gorgeous and loaded. Oh, and it's got almost flawless pearl white paint.



But on the way out of work today, I stopped by to check with the Used Car Manager. Guess what he wants to put in? Yup, another veteran from before my time. I took a quick look at it on the way out of the parking lot. A 2017 RAV4, silver. Even though it was raining, I could see plenty of scratches and scuffs in the driver side. Monday's going to be a long day.

Thanks. I wish I shared your optimism. I worry that they think I can make anything look great these days. I keep telling them that "I can heal the sick. I can't raise the dead." This looks like another one on life support. Hopefully I'll remember to take detailed before and after shots this time.
