    Who’s installing Ceramic Coatings?

    The ones you’re probably referencing is most likely Sonny’s and/or Simonize I would imagine? And yes, they also sell an ultra low end consumer grade hand applied coating that is marketed towards car washes due to the overwhelming need to be user friendly. They’re the absolute lowest on the totem...

    Who’s installing Ceramic Coatings?

    There’s nothing truthful about it imho. In fact, if the car wash industry continues to push this service I think it will further diminish its credibility by confusing the public. Such a disconnect having the front-end car wash selling a $5 “coating” through the wash lane that the back-end detail...

    Who’s installing Ceramic Coatings?

    Oh ok, as long as the car wash industry has been profiting by perpetrating mistruths for decades it gives them a continuous pass to keep doing it. Sounds about right.

    Who’s installing Ceramic Coatings?

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but please do the industry (detailing & car wash) a favor and stop marketing and/or selling these products as ceramic coatings. It’s doing nothing but diluting the integrity of rear ceramic coatings and tricking your customers into something you’re really...

    Who’s installing Ceramic Coatings?

    A real coating is applied as a liquid and turns into a solid when cured. If a product doesn’t do that, it’s not a real coating. Watch out for all the hyped spray coatings on the market. Especially the ones in this thread. They’re tricking the public into think they’re coatings (from their use...

    Thanks for spotting that and reading my website! I never noticed it before. It’s an obvious error from my web designer. Hopefully we can now move on to what this thread is really about: Interior Cleaner Recommendations

    I used to work with 3D (the manufacturer of HD) and helped develop the HD line. I’m no longer affiliated with them, but still feel they offer some great, cost effective products. My business name is Forza Auto Salon. www.ForzaAutoSalon.com

    Who’s installing Ceramic Coatings?

    Just like the title say. The wave is here. Who’s riding it and who’s sitting on the beach? Great source of income. Somewhat easy to install. Exclusiveness from immediate competitors. We use Optimum & SB3 Coatings.

    What interior dressing/protectant do you pros use.

    Please explain how applying a thin layer of silicone oil over a surface provides a barrier? Any company advertising that their product "blocks UV" is altering the truth. No product can add any measurable amount of UV inhibitors to an interior. Besides that, your vehicle glass blocks out most of...

    What interior dressing/protectant do you pros use.

    Several car manufacturers offer factory deliveries on their vehicle - Corvette / Porsche / BMW / Mercedes / Ferrari to name a few... It's not like a new car porter at a dealership is doing all that much for the prep process. They're not waxing them? Not even the high end and exotics. Wash...

    What interior dressing/protectant do you pros use.

    How do you protect a plastic surface back to a factory look? It's not like a protectant product is reinstalling plasticizers back into the surface? And there isn't a product that will prevent the outgassing of plasticizers either. And again, applying a product (especially an solvent based...

    What interior dressing/protectant do you pros use.

    Many customers have been tricked into thinking that dressings are beneficial when they really are the opposite. Many of them claim "UV Protection" when in fact it's false. It's been a misnomer in the industry for decades. It's a total fallacy to think that applying a dressing to a leather, vinyl...

    What interior dressing/protectant do you pros use.

    I didn't say anything about tires did I? That's about the only item *I* fell should be altered in most applications. It's also the standard operation on pretty much every detail since the industry has been around. But please don't promote dressing tires as if it "protects" your tires as it...

    detailing section is dead now

    Facebook (detailing groups specifically) are killing forum traffic. You're able to get quick responses to your questions/conversations.

    Plastic Floor Covering?

    Anyone installing this floor covering? If so, how much are you charging and where are you getting them from??

    Replace aerosol foamy carpet cleaner with this!

    How does a vacuum remove oil? If anything, foam will prevent oversaturation, not induce it. Hand shampooing (especially with hand scrubbing) will push more wetness into the carpeting adding more time for drying.

    What interior dressing/protectant do you pros use.

    A vehicle's interior isn't shiny/dressed when it's new, why would you want to alter that look to try and keep it looking "new"? Unless there is fading or surface scuffing, dressing/protectants shouldn't need to be used. Shops need to start educating their customers on the correct way to care for...
