firstly id like to take this chance to welcome you to the board, which i hadnt done yet.
the reason for this post is to ask your advice on detailing my deville, i noticed a dts on your website so im sure youve detailed at least one.
where do i start, in wat order do i go, what products do i use on what part of the car. please assume im completely clueless as to what dressing and conditioners are, as well as polish versus glazes versus sealer versus everything, heck lets just say im clueless to detailing, please break it down for me. also if you could,please give me a more readily attainable example of each item instead of (or along with) suggesting i use your products. im sure your products are top notch, but i have not completely built trust in internet purchasing etc so i need a comparable product that can be bought locally.
one of the major trouble areas would be the plastic door sills and especially the carpet, its supposed to be "shale" colored and is dirt free but is actually a brownish color
please respond, i dont doubt your skills at all, but after reading a few of your posts i can see there are some doubters on the board and some who would say that youre only here to promote your product.... so how about helping a board member out and shuttin some of the haters up (no offense to anyone)

First of all let me say that the owner of this forum asked me to come on board to help members with detailing. I'm saddened if someone thinks my intention is to sell. I could stop selling tomorrow and it wouldn't effect my business. I sell because my customers want the same level of qaulity products I use in my shop, so i make it available. Plus, since I pay money to this forum to keep it running, do you not think its fair that I do sell? I spend hours answering questions to people all over the world, what is that worth? On to you questions. You are not the first person that is clueless on car care. That is why I started the first ever detailing clinics in the Chicago area, now I teach at colleges, Libraries, and car clubs. although the procedures are not rocket science, they are important to get right in keeping your car in top shape. I will post on a separate thread some tips on exterior detailing. YOu can always PM me with more questions if I don't get here in a timely fashion, since I run 5 other detailing forums. Gary

thanks for your reply, i want you to know that i have no problem wether you sell here or not, i agree with your sentiment, if you pay to support, and offer tons of advice, why not promote products? i simply mentioned that i had noticed some post from some mebers which suggested you should keep in the classifieds forums. id prefer if you didnt though, ill look at ads all day if i can get to some pertinent information, and even though ive learned a couple of things from this sections of cadillacforums,you seem like youd pay more attention here to anywhere else, as opposed to someone who might be in another section primarily and every so often stop in here. and i kno i definitely stay out of the classified sections.
plus noone can say they dont like to see the pics youve posted of cars youve detailed

There should be no rushing in any details.
Patience and knowledgable care is cruciall.
Then once you are fully satisfied as to what to post......
I feel it should be put up permanently as a sticky.
