The hose part was hilarious… I also like the level of detail the guy from Chicago Auto Pros went into about detailing. Was this the same place that Jack went to before to get the ppf / ceramic coating? The guy mentioned about the vette having a proper hydophobic coating and the lexus not.
One of these days, a company (read: Porsche) is going to develop a method of applying a protective layer of hard sapphire to body panels through chemical vapor deposition in a vacuum chamber. It won't be a cheap option, but it will be well worth it.
Having to endure paint that is too soft to repel kicked up stones is infuriating.
Wrong! There is a better method than the 2 bucket method. Simply after every section just use the normalhose prsssure trigger nozzle to "prsssure wash" the mitt, then squeeze the water out of mitt from the top down and visually inspect it.Takes about 8 seconds to do. This enure NO grit in the mitt. Then continue washing. He got everything else right, almost.
11:57 Thats the best way honestly, Have like 5 mitts or 6 or 7 or whatever. And use 1 Mitt for each panel and just wash the mitt's later. Saves a lot of time and you dont have to kill yourself with 2 buckets.
When I was a kid and ignorant life was much easier when washing cars with the good ol coin up brush. Once I found out about "swirl marks" about 10years ago I can't get a good sleep over my OCD of protecting my paint and maintaining it swirl free.. lmao
most importantly – just because a product is more expensive doesn't make it better. There are a lot of bargain products out there that work a lot better than high end detailing stuff that costs 5x as much..
I've been a detailer for almost three years and even I picked up some new tips and tricks! Great video! I would actually love to work at that detail shop. They do things a little bit better than my shop
