A couple of months ago I received a phone call from Sapan a very good customer of Detailer's Domain. Our first meeting was about 2 years ago, Sapan drove up from VA en route to get his car modded. We had his car for 2 days for the royal treatment. Since then Sapan picked up a new FRS, however time constraints made it hard for him to make the trip up to us. We were able to put a nice package together for him and he decided to push it out there to friends and forum members to take advantage of. Thru his hard work he was able to secure 10 exterior only plus Opti Coat jobs for us. He also managed to have Mike and Mr. C at P Tuning
in Manassas, VA to host the event. Mike and Mr. C were great host and have a very impressive facility, if you are in the area go check it out! To get the job done I enlisted our team plus some help from Dave at Street Dreams Detail
and Gianni our very own forum moderator on DB, as well as Franki Li. The job was to be done in 2 days. A very tall order but we somehow were able to accomplish this with all parties being happy with the final results. Take a look and I hope you enjoy this write up. Project:
