Don't be self conscious, you seek excellence which takes time and explanation and comes through even on the intro level, others seek what may be adequate or quick n' dirty, nothing wrong with those either, they all have their place.

Hey Larry. Wow. What an incredible series. I consider myself an advanced beginner, and took so much away from your process. Through out the process I only have 1 question. I’m interested in the thought process as to why not finalize the interior, prior to the exterior of the vehicle? I historically have completed the entire interior of the vehicle and then move the the outside. Is it preference or is there risk of cross contamination? Thank you so much for the information and the incredible video series.

I have been detailing cars for close to 30 years now. I have been working at a new car dealership for 20 years as a 2nd shift detail manager and I can't stand the way we wash new cars and detail the used ones. You would cringe big time if you would see how we wash a car there. Even I hate the way we wash cars there. Not to mention all the idiots that try to wash a car and do a horrible job at it. We don't use the 2 bucket method, instead we take a power washer that has a soap nozzle feature and spray the soap on the car (usually no rinse unless I am doing it) then soap up the washmitt and we proceed to wash the entire car usually starting with the hood. Then rinse, then blade, then chamois it dry. The same chamois then dries out the doorjambs and trunkjamb. We use the same washmitt for the new cars as well as the used cars that get full details done. Anyway, I just want to say that I am enjoying your series on car detailing and I am learning some ways that even I didn't know about so thanks for taking the time to make these videos.

Good video Larry. Ok, so i'm OCD and have run out of topsides and interior to clean. Generally, I clean the car in hours equal to the drive hours. Yes, I'm crazy. I need to see what you do to clean the underneath of the car. To date, I put the Mercedes-Benz on jack stands and clean the underneath using a spray wax and microfiber towels. This takes about 6 hours to do and is a lactic acid in the arms test for sure. The guys at Mercedes-Benz comment every service. Their groomer made a point of coming out to the waiting room to check out who the hell I was to be more insane than him. BTW. Your wheels woolies are amazing.

Hmmm I'm gonna get some of that Brute soap for my wheels. I hate the brake pads Mercedes Benz uses because they dust the rim up really bad and I end up spending 20 minutes alone just cleaning the wheels when doing my wash. I definitely need a quicker solution.

first, do a search online of other mercedes benz owners to find out which brake pads are better for reduced brake dust, don't sacrifice your stopping distance and are a good price. One brake bad that does all that on one model of car may not be effective or will make your brakes squeak. I found this in less than 2 minutes: http://mbworld.org/forums/w211-amg/619474-best-low-dust-brake-pads.html

Larry, your training, tips and techniques are what help make up weekend warriors much better at doing the thing we love. I love to keep my car, my wifes car and the familys cars clean and protected. So to learn techniques along with does and donts from someone like you has changed my life. Our cars have never looked so clean and stay cleaner for longer. It even lead me to let my father in law clean his porsche as he saw the results i was getting. Im currently in the process of re organising my garage to make it easier to sort out my car cleaning equipment. Wont be to the same standard as your dream garage, but you have inspired me to do this project. For that and everything else i just wanted to thank you. Keep doing what you do and make the world a better place.

Problem is, this kind of washing only works in warm environments. For instance you do not have to deal with snow and salt which we do in here in Sweden. We, for example, use alkaline degreaser to get the salt off, then we use petroleum based degreaser to get tar spots off. Theeeen we schampoo it down, if foam gun is accesible we use that too. Most of us dont even have high pressure washers since it’s illegal to wash a car on standing asphalt (must be on grass) so we go to these ”diy halls” where they debit us per minute, even if we dont use the washer. Larry, have you looked into on how we should our cars in the more colder climates?

So my $2 wash with the local wand and brush is pretty damn good. The rinse pressure and the foam brush with constantly flowing soap just does a great job. Blow it all off with soapy water under pressure and then switch to the brush. Finish at the bottom and wheels and you are good. Have a look at the brush, but I've always found them clean.

Great video Larry! Have you ever tried EZ Detail brushes for wheels? I use both wheel woolies and EZ detail brushes. The woolies are great for the face and in between the spokes, but because the EZ detail brushes are bendable and super narrow they can get the barrel and backs of the spokes much better!

12:45 Larry man how tall are you?? Good Lord man the Ford Edge is 69" tall and your shoulder is nearly roof height! I'm 5'11, our Mazda CX-5 is only 65" tall and I still have to use a step ladder to reach the top center of the roof. That's the main thing that makes washing the car take so damn long, having to move the ladder all around to reach everything.

It probably has more to do with wingspan (length of his arms) rather than height. Males arm to height ratio is 1.023 and females is 1.001. http://www.researchgate.net/publication/281526311_Correlative_study_of_wingspan_armspan_length_and_body_length_in_students_of_SEGi_University_Malaysia His shoulder appears to be at the top of the window 12:28 which is about 2-3" lower than the roof. the average head is 9.5" tall. Wiki lists the edge at 67". That's 5'7" then minus shoulder from top would put them at 5'5", then add head height Total height would be 6'3". Your wingspan would be close to 60.357" and his would be 64.449". He's got 4" on you in height and 4" on wingspan. I'm 6'8". I have more issues down low....

I feel like the vacuuming step there should be more care taken or advised with using that long nose adapter on leather etc. I'm quite sure you'll increase chance of potentially scratching leather or your plastic trim with it (more so if you use the adapter for other things than just car vacuuming). I know I tend to prefer to use a small adapter with a brush head to reduce chance of scratching my leather etc. Then again, you're the pro and I'm the weekend washer :)

Larry, with your property being in NYC and so forth, you complained about your heavy water at one point, might I suggest rainwater tanks, after about 5 years you will feel that you would need to expand on your tanks and have more than enough for your family use in the home. The best thing about rainwater is that it's much more lighter as it hasn't absorbed the minerals while falling underground like bore water so a light filtration system should be enough to get you through the car washes and you would be addicted to the taste too. it's quite inexpensive and if your house already has gutters then you can install it yourself as long as you have a concrete slab on a level surface.
