Hopefully I can get the mods off the car and take it to get a baseline run this weekend. Never got a baseline and im planning on putting her down for some major surgery after our the Ruidoso run in July. She may be out for a couple of months but hopefully it will be worth it.

I've been wondering the same thing. There's a place on Mesa that charges I think about $100. (I can't think of the name of the place right now.) I saw a car he detailed, and it looked pretty good. He uses some kind of special machine to detail the cars. Sorry I can't be of more help here.

Uhmmm, I just read some reviews on this guy, and they're not real flattering. It's Autopride Detail, (915)544-5051. Russel Tanner is the owner. He also sells used cars at this location. He sounds like the type of guy that if you didn't like the work he did on your car, he would just tell you to go to hell.

I did see a black SUV he detailed, and it looked damn good. I would say buyer beware with this guy. (I just now learned about this stuff myself.) Below in the link are some of the unflattering reviews. He doesn't seem to care about pissing off his customers, and I don't like the sound of that.

If he's a real sleazebag, he might take your car out, and race it around, to see what 580 HP feels like. I would recommend passing on this guy. (Sorry, I didn't know about the bad reviews, until just a moment ago. I wouldn't have brought this guy up, had I known about these reviews.)

Below in the link, are some of the bad reviews.

Okay guys, if you hear about a good detailing place in El Paso, please post. I'm wondering the same thing myself.

I just wanted to add one thing. I think Viva Chevrolet details cars for $90 with an internet coupon. I can't vouch for this service, but when they washed my brand new black Camaro, they did a great job when it arrived at the dealership. No micro scratches on my new black paint. (Whew, I was nervous about that.).

Now they seem to have a lot of turnover among their sales staff. The guy I bought my car from no longer works there. I saw new sales staff when I checked on the vette in April.

I wanted to add one more thing. When I picked up my new car, my salesman was training a new salesgirl to work there. (She tagged along during the sales and delivery process.) Ahem, she was very nice and extremely good looking. She was a doll. I personally thought she was an excellent addition to the sales staff. When I checked on my vette in April, my salesman no longer worked there, so I asked about her. I was going to try to buy my vette through her. I was told she no longer worked there either.

Anyway, my point being is whoever details your car at Viva, might change every 4 months or so.

LOL! How's the family brotha? Hope things are going well. Been seeing a lot of activity on here and I am so happy that you cats are still keeping it strong, especially out south in EP. I'm enjoying the job, but no time to do much on the interment or texts.

I wouldn't want ya to be spending $100 plus dollars on a detail by a ragady shop that uses oil rags and bath towels to dry and detail. I have a good and fresh supply of some Adam's that I only use bout 3 times a year and have enough to spread around ya know. My little charge is $25, just so I can stock on new products, a 6pk of Porter, and good company and conversations. How does that sound?

I would like to join in on this, and help with the detailing of this car. No charge for my service. I have a lot of detailing products also. My number is (915)543-0093. I'd be happy to drive to Las Cruces to help out on this. I'd be very careful to not do any damage to the car. First rule of detailing, is do no damage. I would bring all my products. I would be happy to follow all of Charlie's and rrubio's instructions on what to do. It ain't my car. I don't make the rules, if it ain't my car. These camaros are very nice cars. I have a lot of respect for these cars.

The only problem is my work schedule. I work a 4 & 2 schedule. (4 days on, 2 days off.) It would have to be when I'm off work.

I'm not joking here. I would find this very interesting. I'm interested in detailing. I live about 3 blocks from the El Paso convention center.

G & M Mobile Vehicle Details has 4 good reviews here and no bad reviews. (Appointment Only) I guess they drive to your place, to detail your car.
