The redesigned 2019 G-Wagon is one of my guilty pleasures.  It's a big, giant, ostentatious, gas guzzling behemoth of an SUV, but there's something rather special about wafting around town in a modern day tank while having the siphonous baritone side-exit exhaust announcing your every arrival. It's a formula that has worked for Mercedes since they first introduced the G-Wagon 30+ years ago, and for the first time, they did a C...

"My car is brand new, it doesn't need anything!"

     This is understandably common to hear in the detailing industry.  Unfortunately it's often far from the truth.  Vehicles directly from the factory commonly have surface finish issues such as dust in the paint, "fish eye" clear-coat defects, sanding mark, etc.  There are also potential problems during shipment where the car can be damaged in transit, as well as vehicles that...

This BMW X5 has seen over 220k miles of use during its life and the interior and exterior surfaces really showed it!  Southern Utah has extreme sun exposure that had done a number on the trim, headlight lenses, and paint work in addition to the usual wear and tear of using your car.  

The vehicle received an extensive list of services including:

- Full interior detail

- Headlight Restoration

- Paint Touch-up

- Clear bra a...

    Matte paint provides a few unique challenges.  To create a matte finish, you need to create a perfectly consistent, uneven finish (I know, that sounds weird).  This is contrary to the perfectly smooth finish that you try to achieve to create a gloss finish.  Imagine gloss clear coat being a flat cement freeway surface.  A matte paint finish would be a gravel road.  Even though the overall road is "smooth", the different pe...

Even late model, well-maintained vehicles have tons of room for improvement!  We recently took in this Chevy HighCountry pick up and applied many of our services to ensure it looked its best upon delivery. 

We started by applying undercoating to all the exposed factory frame rails and suspension components.  This gives the parts a nice, factory matte finish that erases years of aging from the truck!

The next order of operat...

Our Wash/Vac/Wipe service is our lowest cost service we offer, but it's honestly one of the most important.  That statement is going to make me really unpopular with other detail shops who are have a strict mission of "selling" very expensive Paint Corrections and Paint Coatings.   And while both of those services are very important, and provide a stunning end product, they can be quickly undone without properly maintaining th...

    Well, second greatest enemy.  The greatest enemy against the beauty of our automotive finishes are the extreme amounts of UV exposure from the sun that we get, but more on that in another article.  Water spots, on the other hand, have immediate and long lasting effects on our car finishes.

St. George receives some of the "hardest" water in the country.  What this means is that each droplet of water that comes...
