Wow! Thank you all so much for your very kind words... I've had this writeup in my head for awhile, and it makes me really happy to know that people enjoyed it, and found it useful.

I love learning about detailing, and continuing to test products, and practice technique. It's just one of those crafts that you can spend a lifetime doing and still be learning new things every day... I just am glad I have the opportunity to share that experience with fellow detailers doing the same.

As in everything in life, there are 'experts' and then there are those who should be classed as experts and the trick is sorting through the mine of information - wanted to call it something else - to find the relevant information that is backed up by peer reviews for the chosen topic you wish to approach.

Many truisms here, I too joined around the same time have seen people come and go, expand plus have great success.

Key that many started will limited knowledge plus experience those stalwarts of DW encouraged all to become more experienced and above all practice.

We have 100's of combinations across the range covering all manner of polishing requirements.

DW encouraged us to find a solution with what we had, in that incremental step change of cutting one idea is to change the pad, to one with more bite, a remedy is not to suggest something the OP does not have. Most of the high tier products will all get the job done in a range of varying techniques or methods.

All the professionals give advice time support plus encouragement for the love of detailing itself, sharing those hard earned ideas over many years, a true short cut to those seeking improvement.

From online tutorials and Vlogs the industry itself is embracing technology to educate and reach a wider audience.

Everyone has supported each other given time to those new or improving, the emphasis on sharing those acquired skills with others.

Every era has had those who helped make this a great detailing forum, for that I thank you all plus long may that continue.

From wax to ceramic the transition of improvement has been dramatic it helps those seeking quality protection for vehicles of every form, this is about the love of cars of every type or stature.
