Why have your car detailed?


Value: Your car is a direct representation of you. It embodies what the owner has accomplished through hard work and determination and hence should be treated as such. The caliber of detailing a car directly represents how well the owner maintains the asset. Over time, natural wear and tear as well as adverse affects from mother nature can take a toll on your vehicle. With our restoration and preservation services, paint and body damage can be prevented and your vehicle will be able to maintain a constant state of perfection. Protection: High end detailing not only provides an awesome finish, it protects the overall condition of the vehicle and helps maintain its value. As consumers of the finer things in life, we take special pride in our own vehicles as well as our client’s cars to ensure that we deliver the highest level of paint protection to have long lasting results. Projection: The first impression is the lasting impression. Maintaining a well manicured vehicle projects a certain image and a preconceived notion about how the owner takes care of valuable items. Having a neatly cared for vehicle projects pride in ownership and respect for the vehicle. Don’t ruin first impressions with poor detailing and care. The next time someone takes a glance at your car, you want them to think perfection.

What is trim masking and digital paint inspection?


This is the most crucial step prior to a multi-stage paint correction. The thought of having multiple high speed tools touching the vehicle’s paint surface is often times daunting. While this commonly happens at most dealerships and inexperienced detail shops, here at American Detail, it is our number one priority to produce the most striking result without creating further damage by incorporating next generation equipment. The vehicle is thoroughly inspected using multiple light sources including high powered LEDs, direct sunlight to reveal all imperfections.  The next step is to measure the paint’s clear coat using an ultrasonic paint depth meter to make sure there is enough clear coat to work with. This is a very important process and commonly overlooked by most detailing shops. It determines the thickness of the paint and the possibility of burning through the clear coat. All panel edges, plastics and sensitive areas will be protected using body safe masking tapes. Another step most detailing shops will ignore. Masking these areas will prevent the buffer from burning through the clear coat, since the paint is always the thinnest towards the edge of the panels.
