“I’VE JUST SPENT THE LAST TWO HOURS DETAILING MY CAR.” NO, YOU HAVEN’T ABSOLUTE YOU TOOL, YOU’VE JUST SPENT TWO HOURS CLEANING IT!
It’s the same mentality as those people with digital SLR cameras who call themselves photographers. Or those girls who hand out flyers at shows calling themselves models.
Detailing a car doesn’t take two hours. It takes at least two days. It’s a profession, an art form and a skill. Just because you’ve got two bloody buckets and a snow-foam lance doesn’t mean you’ve become a detailer.
Christ all mighty. You don’t say you’ve detailed your bog because you’ve sprayed it with some Cillit Bang and wiped it with a flannel.
What you’ve just done is valet your car. And even that’s an overstatement unless you’ve got the Dyson out.
So unless you’re prepared to go over your paintwork with a clay bar, correct it with a mop, apply polish and then wax, before starting the interior fabric, glass and wheel clean. Don’t dilute the meaning of the word and profession that is detailing.
