/ About Vivid Element

My name is Martin and I would describe myself as a passionate petrolhead with an obsessive eye for perfect detail.

I first entered the world of vehicles at the age of 15 when I purchased my first car, a Ford Cortina MK3 GT. Over a period of 2 years I performed a full strip down of the vehicle in my friends’ garage and rebuilt the engine/ transmission and many other parts including the interior all with the help of a Haynes manual and nothing else.

After a full re-spray, which I didn’t do myself the Cortina was ready for the road on my 17th birthday and Wow did she look the part.

From then I knew vehicles were my passion so completed an apprenticeship in a lorry garage, worked in a Bodyshop and also at a car main dealership.

I have been lucky enough to own many cars and motorbikes over the years and have had an obsession for keeping them extremely clean, to the point my family and friends believe I have some form of OCD?

Naturally opening a detailing studio was the ultimate wish for me and so I formed Vivid Element Detailing.

Have to say it’s the best thing ever and I enjoy every minute of my working day.

I have completed many detailing courses over the years and forged strong links with suppliers. Having these strong links enables me to offer the best solutions for anyone wishing to have they vehicle detailed.

At the beginning of 2021 I was approached by the producers of Wheeler Dealers to see if I would be interested in cleaning/detailing the cars for the new series.

Didn’t take me long to say a big yes.

Very lucky to have been given this opportunity, love working with the team who are ace.

Finally, I believe in values so offer my customers an honest, reliable service with a little bit of fun along the way. I totally understand that vehicles no matter how much they are worth mean something to whoever owns them.

Once a vehicle comes through my studio doors, I class them as mine and treat them as if they are.

That’s me, plain, simple but very passionate and honest.
