DETAILING FOR SHOW OR PROFIT!
Like everything else these days, detailing has gone high tech," with space-age compounds for polishing, cleaning, restoring and protecting every finish on a vehicle, from ABS plastic to stainless steel. But detailing is much more than a cleaning process. It is an entire system of car care designed not only to make your vehicle look good, but to extend its life and protect its finish from "the elements."
Detailing means extending this philosophy to every component of the vehicle, including emblems, chrome trim, weatherstripping, and nuts and bolts. For enthusiasts, the difference between a first place show winner and second place is often "in the details." For professionals, knowing the proper techniques and keeping up with the latest products is the key to staying in business.
