Because its "ME" I've got to please, and even when the customer says
it's acceptable, there's always someone else that will notice it and
it reflects back on me. I've got to be happy with it or I'll quit
THAT is what detailing is. And THAT is what most of the big boys miss, well sometimes. First off, many have learned what detail is, they know how to get the most bang for the buck, but it stops there. The real difference in cars is DETAIL. It is not how much money is thrown at it, it is DETAIL. Detail is free, most anyone can do it, but most don't. What you are doing is NOT "only for you" it is DETAIL, and a well detailed car is like a beautiful woman, you don't have to take her clothes off to know what is under it. That well detailed car "looks" as if you could take the upholstry out and the car will be well detailed under it, understand what I mean?

You just can't go wrong with detail.
