Vinyl can be polished!!! Check out our vinyl restoration project!

Searching online I had found that no one had ever had any experience with polishing vinyl. So we had to try it out. One of my close friends Scion TC had a wrap installed two years ago and it was severely oxidized and swirled. So we performed this experiment to learn the effects of polishing surfaces like vinyl. 




Dirtiest Interior Ever? 2009 Honda Civic Coupe

Dirtiest Interior Ever? 2009 Honda Civic Coupe

Now I love a challenge like everyone else but when this 2009 Honda Civic came in I had no idea what I would be in for. The pictures do not do this car justice as it was the dirtiest coupe I have ever done and likely in the top 2 or 3 dirtiest cars i have ever done. Every vehicle is different but the ones that contain mostly dead skin, sweat, and other types of human grime test my abilities as a detailer the most.

2016 Mercedes Benz Airstream RV Full Correction and Cquartz

I always love a challenge. That's what I was thinking as I took on this 2016 Mercedes RV on. This customer is a good client of mine and always calls on us to detail their company and personal vehicles.  They had just bought this RV and the paint was very very scratched up. The Mercedes dealership would run this vehicle through their scratch-o-matic car wash doing nothing but destroying the quality of this very expensive RV. After agreeing on a price for a 2 step polish with Cquartz coating we got to work as there was heavy rain in the forecast soon and he needed this vehicle for their family's Christmas road trip.

2006 Chevy Trailblazer DEEP interior and exterior detail.

What I love most about this business is helping good people out. I cannot imagine how difficult it would be to manage a full time career, as well as the stresses of being a single parent. She contacted me asking to have a simple wash and wax and the interior thoroughly detailed. When she told me over the phone it may be a little bad we shrugged it off thinking hey we have detailed tons of interiors.... It will just be another job...... or so we thought.....
