Default Best place for Detailing

Where is the best place to get your car detailed? As in a full detail, not the "hannahs car care 4 flag" service, I mean a real deal detailing place, that knows how to do it right, and thoroughly.

Anyone have any experiences, good bad or indifferent with any companies? Thinking of getting my car detailed within the next couple weeks.

There's a place right by Erro (Sp?) Audi/VW/Porsche... if you drive thru their lot, it's in the back left corner, in a white building behind the gas station......

Never used them, but have had a couple people reccomend them. Sorry I forgot the actual name of the place since I never ended up going

So is this place next to Ero "strictly by hand", or is it "real deal", or just a place no one knows the name of, but is good? (Hmmm...I think I need to go for a drive )


Hmmm.....So how much do you charge for this Lee?




Man!!! Some of us should get together and start a Detailing center, seeing as there are none, or they're booked

I charge $75 for everything. I'll even shampoo the carpets for $20 more.

The lighter the interior the harder to clean. I used to do some capert cleaning and I hated doing light carpets. I haven't really found a shampoo that is better then another, its all in how you do it. Tusin, you carpets didn't look that bad, but we can hookup some time and I can take a look at it and tell you what you can do.

Simple Green, water and an old toothbrush works wonders. On the really tough spots, use SG full strength and a toothbrush to scrub. On plastic, you can get away with just using water and a sponge to wipe it off.

As for rinsing, don't go full spray with the hose. Covering the coil, alternator and other important electrical areas would be a good idea. (I've never had a problem, but it's always good to be cautious). 1 gallon ziploc bags are you friend in this situation. Afterwards, use something that'll protect the plastic so it won't crack or dry. Lexol makes a good product for dash plastics and vinyl, should work just as well.

If you're really hardcore, you can use gasoline like a few of my friends do. Just make sure you use something afterwards that'll dilute the gasoline and make it harmless.

Shucks sells a little 2 can pack of this engine cleaner stuff. Forgot the name, but it's 2 big spray cans in a box...think it's engine detail stuff. Anywhoo, I used it once and it did a GREAT job, first can gets all the grease and gunk off, second makes it all shine.

Just gotta make sure you don't spray certain things and cover electrical things... it's butane I think

Like Kevin(code-7) seid, simiple green is the best way to go. I have been working on mine a little bit at a time. SG does a really good job. It take longer then just spraying on so engine cleaner a rinse. But, you can get to all the places that it will miss when you do it slow.

Tusin, there is a quick shampoo at shucks, I forget what it is called. It is real good if you don't want to use water and don't want to wait for your carpets to dry. You just spray it on and scrub it in. I have used it a couple of times for quick jobs. I'll go and find out what it was called and let you know.
