Understandable. One thing I noted out here is the difference in what one goes through to do a full detail. Since there is no REAL weather or seasons to muck up a car....most technicians that consider themselves detailers are no more than glorified car washers.

I had a stand alone Auto Salon service for 23 years many years ago in Missouri with lifts,finish rooms,pre-wash bays,wet sanding/paint correction bays etc.

The effort to go from A-Z compared was astounding.

Oh believe me, I know. The midwest long Winters and stormy months with ice storms and bird dropping stains, leaves staining in the Fall and high humidity brought havoc to our cars as well.Huge amount of rock chips from ice-melt spread on the roads was always a lot of additional airbrush billed time.
The before and after's were always a a personal reward.
