  5. Re: Customer claims I cracked her windshield...

    You certainly donít need ďprotectionĒ but there comes a point where it makes financial sense to consider insurance.

    Working on an 80k vehicle as a Detailer is an entirely different risk profile to...
  6. Customer claims I cracked her windshield...

    You can certainly be a professional detailer without insurance.

    Insurance does two things; cover the business owner for liability, and legitimises the business for the customer.

  7. Re: Can this exterior trim be restored?

    The trim looks a lot like a rubber compound.

    If it is, use a dedicated rubber cleaner to purge all of the embedded contaminants and follow up with a rubber or trim restorer.

    Remember to consider what the logo will look like on the side of your car/van at a distance.

    Boat Detail Down Under!!!

    Very ballsy detail Aaryn, must have been satisfying at the end.

    Does the surface of the clear feel rough/dusty?

    The post I replied to was specifically about detailers who charge thousands being a waste of money.

    If you wash your vehicle properly every 3 days, then a ceramic coating is unnecessary and a...
  17. Re: For those using coating saver applicators

    Thanks for the insight Crack.

    Iím really not sold on its benefits for full coatings.

    For sealants, liquid waxes and ceramic lite products I can see it being incredibly useful, less wasteful...
  18. For those using coating saver applicators

    Good tip, especially once the applicator goes hard and you’re ready to bin it.

    On the topic of Coating Saver Applicators, how exactly are they more efficient than a suede wrapped foam block?

    BM gloss is a visually superficial beast, itís akin to OG paint sealants and coatings which provided a plastic-wrapped look.
