A standard exterior detail includes full decontamination of the paint, glass and chrome and paint correction/polish and paint finish steps, all trim/brightwork detailed and conditioned, wheels/wheel wells/tires. Additional steps may be indicated depending on the paint condition, which may include sanding to remove heavy defects. Often I perform a test section to see what protocol suits the vehicle which then establishes a straightforward agreement on quality and price.
Interior detail includes cleaning and conditioning of all the interior surfaces and crevices: seating, plastics, carpeting and so on. I prefer the use of products which leave as small a chemical footprint as possible and try to not use petrochemical-based fragrances which supplant one odor with another. Trim detail and brushwork is part and parcel of the work. Leather is cleaned and conditioned with high-quality products such as Leatherique. Carpet and upholstery stain and odor removal can be more involved in which case it may be quoted separately.
An optional extra, this is carried out by hand using degreasers.
This is a multi-step process utilizing dry and wet sanding and polishing pads.
