The Art Of Proper Car Detailing
Before we look at any specific products, let’s take a moment to appreciate the art of car detailing. When we say car detailing, we’re not just referring to removing dirt with a quick wash. Detailing is a structured process that when done right not only elevates the vehicle's aesthetic appeal, it can also prolong it’s life.
From the paintwork, to the tires and engine bay, each area required specialised care and specific products.

Clay Bar & Luber Synthetic Kit
A clay bar is arguably the unsung hero of car detailing.
We recently answered commonly asked questions about clay barring.
It may be simple in appearance but a clay bar works wonders on refining the surface of a car. The purpose is to exfoliate the paintwork, removing the surface of all microscopic contaminants and ensuring you are left with a smooth finish. Be careful though, clay barring is a relatively advanced technique that will also remove any waxes and protectants you have applied. It should be the started of a thorough detailing session.
