    The Professional Detailer's Oath

    The Professional Detailer's Oath


    Take from the Greek physician Hippocrates, from his work called Of the Epidemics,

    first, do no harm


    I present, the Professional Detailer's Oath

    First, do no harm


    The idea being, - as a professional detailer and in keeping with the Professional Detailer's Oath, to first do no harm means to always,

    Use the least aggressive process to get the job done



    And when surface conditions dictate that you must use a more aggressive process and/or product, (which in context could be positioned as to be doing harm), it is with the noble intention of the bigger picture, which is to remedy or repair the surface.

    Re: The Professional Detailer's Oath

    Ok I like this, Mike being new where can I find a general idea list of what pads/compounds/polishes go from least to most aggressive?

    For example:
    Compounds least aggressive to most aggressive
    Pads least aggressive to least aggressive
    Polish liquids least aggressive-if even aggressive?

    I know microfiber pads are more aggressive
    How to distinguish and tell what to use?

    Hope my post makes sense.
    My goal in life is to love God, family and myself. To love others and treat others right.

    IMO:
    •“The Hippocratic Oath”:
    -Good oath to not only detail by, but also
    one to live Life by.


    On a personal basis:
    •Regardless the situation, I tend to always
    expand the “Hippocratic Oath” to its fullest
    measure; that is to say:

    -The trick is to do no harm, while winding
    up having done (at the least) some good.

    ”The physician must be able to tell
    the antecedents, know the present, and
    foretell the future—must mediate these
    things, and have two special objects
    in view
    with regard to disease, namely,
    to do good; or to do no harm.”
    Unquote

    Just to chime in,

    All great comments guys. I'm hoping to get the "right" picture for the placeholder spot above.

    And then expand on the oath portion.

    Can't wait to see it! Maybe a guy doing a test spot would be a good one. A test spot on a hood that looks like a shield. Because the shield stands for the protection we install on their investment. Or a side by side photo of a guy doing a test spot then gently buffing a wax or coating off with a premium quality microfiber towel and looking extremely focused. The Professional Detailer's Oath
