Thats a very kind offer Matt but i couldn't possibly expect you to do that.

I'll see what the site manager says first, if they accept they f'd up then i'll get the wife to take the car to the body shop behind us to see what its going to need to clean up.

Thanks anyway mate.

Why do you think his wife needs a small section detailing? I'd take offence at that!

Default Detailing for Girls...

Great idea!

Will detailing with claybar prevent SWIMBOs addiction to Decleor on QV bloody C?

Could buy a D4!

Matt has met the love of my life so he knows the condition of her bodywork, he's also met the wife and knows the condition of hers

As has been suggested, a detailer rather than body shop will be your friend here. We both achieve very similar results at face value, but have significantly differing ways of achieving them.

A detailer will look to decontaminate in the gentlest methods / products possible. A bodyshop *tend to opt for a rotary buffing session which *can remove the contaminates attached to the surface but subsequently introduce new swirls and marring to the paint work. In the immediate it all looks good. Give it 4 weeks and the results are somewhat different once the fillers in their compounds have faded and washed out.

Ive completely decontaminated a white TT that had similar air born contaminates from a building site. It will be possible to remove - given the right person with the right approach.

Drop me a line if you wish any more thoughts or advice.
