Enjoying a beautiful weekend? How many times have you thought that, gotten your car washed, and then smacked your forehead when the inevitable Spring rain ensued? My guess is quite a few. Well there's one way to handle it - scorn the car wash over their obnoxious rain guarantee. And then there's another - wax your car and buy a microfiber towel.
While the undercarriage is usually the dirtiest part of your car, it’s also probably the most overlooked when it comes to cleaning. After all, out of sight, out of mind. Many people even realize that they should clean their undercarriage but don’t, simply because it’s a pain. This was a problem at our detailing shop too, until we devised a clever
Okay, so first things first - breaking down an automatic car wash is extremely simple. It's a machine full of twirling brushes, spitting foam, pressurized water, rollers to move the car forward (and damage your rims), and a giant blowdryer to top it all off. Sounds terrible. But to make it a bit more real.. take a peak at this video as I go over
With Spring quickly perking up, the time has come to witness the condition of your car's post-winter (or post-storage) paint finish. Chances are you're looking at a cloudy, splotchy, just plain unsightly surface - am I right?

Recently an acquaintance of mine, for no particular reason, gifted me a chamois (sort of a weird gift, but whatever). Now, I’m not a fan of chamois, and I don’t recommend them. So while it was a thoughtful gift, I won’t be using it. Below I’ll break down why, and how you could save yourself a few headaches by skipping the chamois as well.
It happens to the best of us, and more often than you'd think. Pens and leather seats just don't mesh, and removing the ink stain can be somewhat confusing if you don't have the right leather care products handy. It can also give you a bit of a headache if you're searching around the internet for the "proper" procedure. Hopefully the confusion ends
Basically speaking, an automotive clear bra is basically a plastic wrap for potentially damageable regions of your car - lower fascia, side mirrors, rocker panels, and basically any surface facing directly toward the front/bottom of the car. The main use for a clear bra is, of course, to protect these areas from road debris that might kick up on
Ah, St. Patty's day! It's coming quickly, and if you're someone in a relatively populous area that has even a wee bit of Irish heritage, you know what kind of party March 17th is. So what's this have to do with car care? Designated drivers + packed cars + notorious drinking holiday = vomit. If you've never been fortunate enough to drive drunk
Why yes, you read correct. A supercar with no roof, no pillars, no windscreen. These are, of course, the rumored images of Lamborghini's more dangerous and recently announced Aventador J - as posted by Autoforum.cz - and, according to Jalopnik's article, they were rumored to be accurate. Now of course we know, this beast is for real. This
If you wax your car, I'd be willing to bet that 80% of the time you're using either a liquid or paste carnauba wax. What if I were to tell you that the positives of carnauba wax might not outweigh the negatives? You see, wax is used to protect your car's paint, but what happens to carnauba overtime might actually be hurting your finish. How can
