Product Review What's up everyone? It's me, your brother-from-another-mother

Good morning/evening everyone. My name is Jean-Claude and I am the owner of Detailed Designs Auto Spa out of Atlanta, Georgia in the southeastern part of the USA.

A few days ago I became an international sponsor of DW and wanted to introduce myself.

I've been in business since 2007 and have been a car guy since long before then. My vision for DDAS is a bit old-school for many North American car culture folks. I am not sure how things are in all of your parts of the world but in NA, there is an obscene desire to have the fastest, largest portion and cheapest possible "fix" for everything. There is less of a desire, by and large, for craftsman-style work where the professional takes pride in every step of every process. Well...that is pretty much exactly who I(and my staff), are. Fortunately, there are enough clients for me to support employing a few like-minded guys and staying in business.

The video is a bit dated but I think it speaks pretty decently to who I am and what my vision is.


--------------------------------

As I mentioned, I am also a car-guy/motorhead/etc. I have less time for my own vehicles than is ideal because we stay very busy but I do try to make time for our shop car once in a while. I also use our shop car as a tool to document our processes and content I hope to entertain folks with.

I've already shared a thread on this very topic in this thread:
http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=406364

Feel free to check it out if you're into that kind of stuff.

--------------------------------

And, of course, as a business owner I must create content that shows us putting our best foot forward. Like all content I create, my goal is to make it entertaining and informational. If you would like to check out some of these videos, be sure to check out The International Showroom from time to time. I will be sure to share plenty of content in this way.

The first one I shared was on a 100+ hour McLaren project-video. You may view it here:

--------------------------------

Well, that's about all I can offer right now. I look forward to enjoying our conversations and hopefully someone gives me a good reason to visit your lovely island one day as a healthy tax write-off

Feel free to check out our Facebook, Youtube and Instagram accounts as noted in my signature.

Here's a picture of me the day I signed on the new M3.



Kind regards,

Welcome Jean-Claude. You might find our sense of humour a bit 'strange' but it's all in good fun
I'm always available to translate English to American

Any issues and I'm sure there will be enough on here to translate the Scottish humour into American.

Got told today I sounded like Sean Connery which I'll take as a compliment rather than the normal blank looks I can get

Welcome aboard
