Detailing Advice of the Month

We're "movin' on up"!

This detailing advice will be a little different.  I love using acrylic polymer paint sealant to protect a vehicle's finish because it's tougher & longer lasting than traditional wax, but I've recently discovered the ultimate in paint protection.  Paint protection film is a clear, semi-permanent film that is applied to areas of the vehicle that are rock chip & bug acid damage prone.  Some people go even farther & have the hood, or even the whole vehicle covered.  I researched various brands & types of film, & am now going to start installing Xpel brand paint protection film!  Xpel "Ultimate" is by far the best on the market.  It has a 10 year warranty, & there's no compromise between optical clarity & toughness, which is usually a tradeoff.  But above all,  this film is a game changer because it's (drum roll please) SELF HEALING!  Swirls & scratches will self heal with a little heat from hot water, hot air, or just the sun.  I will also offer Llumar window tint.  I'm opening a commercial location in Cedar Park near Brushy Creek & 183.  I'm looking at 2 different shops, & will know the exact address very soon.  Austin Cedar Park Clear Bra will be the only factory certified & trained Xpel dealer in the Austin area.  Very exciting!  Please let me know if you have any interest, or just comments or questions.  You can visit austincedarparkclearbra.com.  

Detailing Advice of the Month (11/24/12)

I've gotten so busy that I went from a week, to two weeks, and now to detailing advice of the month!  Let's talk about the products that we use to keep our vehicles clean and protected.  Did you know that there are many proffesional quality products available to anyone online?  Autogeek.net is probably the best known.  There are a few basic products that I would recommend first.  Cobra brand waffle weave microfiber towels can't be beat for the paint, interior, or glass.  Diamondite aerosol glass cleaner is amazing.  The Glassmaster Pro is very handy for cleaning the nooks and crannies of the windshield.  Optimum brand quick detailer is easy to use, and leaves a great shine.  Optimum tire gel dries to solid, not sticky coating.  Optimum No Rinse car wash concentrate allows you to wash your car without rinsing, and without scratching if used correctly.  Higher quality products are usually easier to use, and more importantly, give you much better results. Never use dishwashing liquid (especially Dawn), old bath towels, or even diapers on your paint.  Windex and equivalents are garbage.  Armor All and equivalents will turn your tires brown.s  Take care of your investment!
