I hope the links on this page offer you not only better advice, but do so without the hype that seems to be such a big part of this "Digital Age" that we now live it!

The unfortunate thing with the Internet is that now, anyone with an opinion (which means everyone) has a free platform in which to broadcast their reviews regardless of experience or real-world credibility.

I speak from experience and hope that my painful learning curves can be avoided by you.

Thanks for tuning in and I wish you much success in your auto detailing efforts!
