Ferrari's Lamborghinis, Bentleys, and FOCUS????

Hey guys im new here and I thought Id intro myself and my business.

My name is Bryan from St. Louis MO.

I own a high end mobile detailing business. I get to make the best cars in STL their best. I have worked on pretty much every car there is minus the Bugatti.

I know my detailing, and I love to share my knowledge. Feel free to ask tips on what to use...or not use to make you car look its best.... I will tell you a secret.....its not the brand of product you use, but how you use it.

I play alot of ice hockey in my spare time. I play goalie for a senior A team as well as a few lower level teams......I am most happy on the ice!

I really like this forum...no one seems to bitch at each other, and there are tons of great write ups.

here are some of the cars I maintain

Well if you are using clay bar that 1 step ahead of the game. The thing I didn't hear you say is POLISH......using clay bar leaves wash scratches in your paint. depending on the color you can get away without polish....if your car is a dark color you should polish everytime after. Polishing actually removes the tiny micro scratches that distort the light reflection. it is like looking into a mirror....if the mirror is cracked it is distorted and light reflects in all different directions.... to fix those you need to use a true cut polish.....brand doesn't really matter......

Since you probably wont be using a machine to polish them away, it is going to take elbow grease. This wont fix any deep scratches ( that you can feel with your finger nail) Polishing is the key to having a deep gloss finish......basically if you want your car to look its best you should spend extra time polishing.........

After you polish....you protect your work with a wax......a caranuba wax is the industry standard.....again the brand is not too important....no matter what the label says a wax lasts about 3 months.....a little more if you don't drive it much and park in the garage.

Basically you should be "detailing" your car like this 4 times a year. It will keep your car looking new for a very long time.

What color is your car?

Welcome to the site. Great to have you here.
I'm from Missouri also, except over on the Kansas City side.
Those cars look amazing. Looks like you do some great work.

Thats VERY tough..... It is even hard to get them out with a light machine polish.....i usually have to move up to a more aggressive pad.......Your best bet is to try a scratch remover.... those are usually a heavy true cut polish.....Thats probably your best bet.....if that doesn't work you may have to step it up to a rubbing compound. I dont recommend you do this unless nessessary because unless you know what your doing, you could actually make it look worse.......its tough to tell someone what to use.....You should try the least aggressive method first.......when you are using those products on your car, make sure you are not rubbing too hard otherwise you may do damage.
