    Poll: What type of detailing do you do? Production Detailing or Show Car Detailing?


    Production Detailing = Using a one-step cleaner/wax for daily drivers and grocery getters. Note some people call a cleaner/wax an AIO whatever term you like but they are the same things, just different words.


    Show Car Detailing = Using a dedicated compound and polish to perfect the paint and then using either a finishing wax, a finishing sealant or a ceramic or quartz paint coating. In other words, you're doing multiple steps on usually a cool car, not a grocery getter.


    Bot types are honorable and good. Just very different for the market place.

    I do about 90% production and the remaining is car show. I'd like to do more car show details.

    Both with it leaning way more to the DD side.

    What about the DYIers?

    This! Seeing huge 3 row vehicles(Ford Expedition, GMC Yukon, etc) show up makes me question my decision to do production detailing, particularly when having to tackle the huge interior of these vehicles. Still waiting to work on my first SIV - special interest vehicle. Hope that day arrives soon...sigh.

    Well it definitely makes money, I mean I'm not in the ball park of some pros here who clear $1000 a day but I can net between 600-900 a day on production buffs. I'm gonna start a car show package here soon, just figuring out how to put it together

    I am a therapist by profession so the 'sickness' of auto detailing is for fun... having said that... I'd say I do a show car detail on a grocery-go-getter... I can take more time since I do it for fun...

    I do this on the side, so don't really have time to do production detailing, though I'll take the job every now and then. Even an occasional wash and wax. So, although I do both, most of the work I've put out would be closer to show car work. 16+ hours (I take my time and/or I'm slow)

    Keep in mind, the pool of daily drivers and soccer mom cars is far, far greater than the pool of SIVs. So if you're doing this for money...
    (also remember you can always turn away certain jobs)

    Cruzman....you know that 900 is just shy of 1,000 right? hehe.

    I'm still way cheap on my work. And I'm still okay with that
