Default Wow, talk about attention to detail....would you do this?

This is what you call going above and beyond just cleaning....gotta give this guy some serious credit. If only I had the time to do that, I so would.

Look (Make sure to check the pictures out on 2nd page as well)

What do you guys think? Would you do it if you had the time?

If I had the time, and was trying to win some serious car shows, then, dang, maybe? I mean the end result is absolutely beautiful! But that is some serious time and effort for something few will see. I guess I might would be my answer.

Maybe if I was wealthy enough I didn't have to work, or only worked 1-2 days a week . As it is now, I don't have enough time to make myself that pretty, let alone my car.

Maybe it sounds stupid, but my time is worth much more than I'd personally get out of doing something like that.

I mean even if I owned a rolls royce, I don't think I would ever be so **** as to do something like that.

To me, the process itself wouldn't consist of something I would consider "fun". I have fun detailing my paint and getting it to shine, but taking the axles off to effectively detail the differential is way past where I draw the line lol.

only if I was getting paid I would. Definitely not on a daily driver. My car probably looks worse than the before pictures and may get even worse but there is nothing I plan on doing about it. Unless the rust was rotting through and even then I would just replace the rear end or by then it would be time for a new car.

I wouldn't do it. Maybe it's just the gear head in me. But my mustang will be driven and driven hard. If the axle get's to that point it'll be time for a supercharger/turbo plus an upgraded rear end.
