    Detailer's Slang ??? Personal sayings ???

    I am not in detailing as a business. I strictly keep it to my own vehicles. I looked online, here, and another forum for auto detailing slang. Couldn't find any, save slogans for businesses.

    Now, every part of society has slang terms, no matter how "professional" they may be. So....

    What are some slang terms/words that you use in your part of the world of detailing ??

    What are some of your personal sayings concerning detailing ??



    I'm a detailaholic

    When I'm detailing, my family refers to it as playing

    I tell friends, and some family members, they need to shine it up
    IF IT DOESN'T SHINE, IT ISN'T MINE

    Other than using acronyms, I can't can't really think of any "slang".
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    I refer to my detailing sessions as my "therapy sessions".
    I believe in treating everybody with respect, and clean cars. Thatís what I believe in.

    Re: Detailer's Slang ??? Personal sayings ???

    A family friend who was a painter and owned his own body shop often used the term “furback” (the further back you are the better it looks) when referring to bad/poor repairs and paint jobs. I sometimes find myself saying this when I see swirled or scratched up vehicles.

    Another “saying” I often use is “don’t look too close or you’ll find something wrong with it”. This is only when someone is looking over one of my own vehicles though since I don’t detail for others.
