    That's a beautiful car and great work Mike. Just curious, how does a show car like that get swirls and holograms ? TIA

    Great question and the answer is the same old answer that haunts detailers since car detailing was invented...

    Lack of knowledge is probably the largest contributor to swirled out show cars. I've been writing how-to articles for the Internet world since 1994. That's 21 years. But not everyone that polishes and waxes cars get on the Internet.

    Next would be lack of proper tools, pads and products. Technology has changed and is changing FASTER than anyone can keep up with unless they're on a forum like this.

    I'd say it's the combination of the above two factors, knowledge and tools.


    Good question.
