My conclusion over at the Charger Forums as well.

Still, pretty stoked about how this is gonna turn out!

Aint nothing wrong with spending $1000 for a detail.

The way I see it, you pay more for the detailer's skill/experience...the same concept applies in a bunch of other industries as well, IT included.

I just hope that Toyota Camry's owner goes above and beyond when it comes to maintenance on that vehicle, for years to come..

I wish I lived close to you. I would pay $1,000 in a second to get that kind of job. I love the look of a car after a detail like that, but I'm not a fan of all the hard work it takes to make it happen.
You sir are a master for sure.

Not sure why anyone feels the need to criticize the Junkman for making money and providing an excellent service. It's the car owners money and they can spent it however they want. I've always enjoyed watching Junkman's videos and have learned a ton by watching...usually have to watch them more than once

Those who guessed no wax at all obviously don't know much about the Junkman...lol...because he would never call the job done without waxing it too!!!

No wax. If he's asking what wax made the car look this way it's easy and I quote "I don't get all caught up in all the choices because I don't use a wax or sealant make my paint LOOK a specific way. All of my paint's appearance comes from the polishing process. Thus, I never fall for the gimmick's that manufacturers claim about their waxes and sealants. Since the ONLY reason I use a wax or sealant is for protection"

I didn't consider your post bashing at all.

The work involved.... THAT'S why I don't do this for a living. That's a LOT of work to earn a lousy 1K and add to that, I get all anal about the work and do way more than I planned. At my age, sitting in a air conditioned office with a plush leather chair is definitely more desirable than sweating over a car. That's why I went back to college and got my degree after the Marine Corps. This man figured it out early in life and now I own the IT firm that I work for. Add to that, I love my boss.

More people should follow your lead and watch those video twice. More people would know the answer to my riddle. :thumbs:

First, let me apologize for using the word 'boner'! I didn't realize that you were a woman! Now I'm all embarrassed!
