Big thank you to you and your crew Phil. You gave my car its second lease on life haha its never looked so good even when it was new! Anyone even remotely close to Phil would be crazy not to go to him. He's an absolute professional and by far in my opinion has done the best detail I've seen to date.

I'll see you in a few months after I get my bumper on and paint cures for some clear bra action. I hope you don't mind if I snag a few pics for my build thread!

Thanks!! In the great state of NJ it takes 8-10 weeks to get the plates . Here's to hoping that it is much much sooner.

Send Phil a PM he's a great guy located in Norwood NJ. Worth the drive for sure man you won't regret it. Plus he sells all the top notch goodies to keep your car looking that good, one stop shopping

I've always wondered what these paint corrections and details cost a customer after seeing all these threads? How is price figured for this stuff? Sorry for my ignorance.


Car looks beautiful!!

sure thing in the foam canon was either Adam's Car Wash, yes we definitely used a mitt to wash the car after.

Ok, I live in Pittsburgh PA. and I have a 2011 SS that of course is black and I was wondering what you charge to do what you did to this Camaro??? My Camaro looks just like this one before you fixed it. We have a bunch of places here in the burgh but most of them don't have a clue on how to detail a car. How far are you from Pittsburgh???
