    My car isn’t all that clean, it’s probably dusty and I have some parking receipts in there, and my idea of a car wash is a good heavy rain but how can people stand to drive in what is essentially a rolling landfill?

    abralon bowling ball polishing pads work great for color sanding the paint and headlights. fits perfect on the polisher. better than 3mM in my experience. BTW i was a part of creating the high speed orbital polishing in the 90's. we used it in a national event with Automagic. we got 2nd in the nation. the world of exterior detailing changed. so im speaking from experience from a coworkers youtube.

    Years ago I worked for a used car lot. I did everything on the ehicles including cleaning them. I had some that were this nasty. The car lot used to buy this expensive cleaning stuff that got diluted down with water. Sold by the gallon. Didn't use it on every car , just the nasty ones It had a mint smell to it. It was also an anti-microbial solution. After a very thorough cleaning ; I'd spray the entire inside of the vehicle down with it. The seats , carpets , headliners , door upholstery , everything. We'd set it out in the hot sun and let it cook in the hot sun. After a full day , there would be NO smells at all inside the vehicles. You'd never know it was a smoker's car. I wish I could remember what that stuff was and if it is even available anymore.

    If you use 400, 600, 800, 1000, 2000 grit sandpaper discs (just a pass or two of each nothing crazy) and then use polishing chalk for the headlights they come out brand new looking -- maybe a little too much effort for "detailing" but I bet you could charge a pretty penny for it as an extra or just guarantee extra satisfaction. Nice work your vids are very satisfying to watch.

    When did we start calling Deep wash(ing), Detail(ing) ???

  • DarkDay2012


    21 dag siden

    @Tardeli Kappa Right, but my point being that the point of "detailing" is specifically to pay attention to all the little details, not just to give it a decent wash. It's a matter of how much are you paying vs how much did you get. You can get a car wash from a 10 year old for 20 bucks but all they're going to do is throw the trash, vacuum it, and give the outside a half assed rinse. He makes the effort to go the extra mile, and charges accordingly. Sure it's still washing the car, but it's doing it better, a subset of car washing if you will. Like how all squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares, similarly, detailing is washing, but washing isn't detailing. Even you put "Deep wash(ing)" to separate it from normal washing, but detailing is the actual term. If you Google it, it should be the third definition "clean (a motor vehicle) intensively and minutely."
