I thought I'd post up a few pics of my last few details and some special issues that I had to deal with. First up, here's a 2017 Tacoma with 24,000 miles on it. It looked pretty decent when I started, but even better when I was finished. It lasted less than a day on the lot.



Next up, and sitting just behind the Tacoma is a 2010 Highlander with almost exactly 100,000 more miles on it than the Tacoma. There was no way this one was going to be perfect, but I think it pops pretty good.



Now, my very last detail for Vanderstyne Toyota. It's a 2018 RAV 4 with just under 20,000 miles on it. It wasn't bad, but it was black and had a few "issues." For instance, there was this mess on the bottom of the front passenger side door:



After some serious polishing:



And the final product:



Lastly, there was this brand new Prius that the customer discovered a bit of an issue with the front passenger side door:



After some really serious polishing:



It will be interesting to see what the new outside contactor detailer can do for them going forward. I never used a drop of glaze. I think I smell some in the future.

Wow Tom, those look great dude.   As usual.  that black one, was that paint transfer for scratched?

I wish it was only paint transfer, but alas, it was mostly a scratch. Didn't get it 100% out, but close enough for the used car lot.
