In short, detailing means devoting the better part of a day to get your
ride looking the best it can look inside and out. Wash, dry, clean wheels and
tires, vacuum, clean/treat upholstery, inside windows, wax/polish (clay bar first
if necessary), etc. My neighbors have just about labeled me certifiable because
I do most of the above to my ride weekly. Personally, I use the car care products
from Zaino (zainobros.com). Everything needed to keep yor car looking great
is available there.
