Anyone looking for a Zaino Detailer in New England?

I love detailing cars. I would be more then willing to offer a full detailing service to anyone interested.

I will make your car look better then ever(seriously), I use clay, PC, Z1-polishes, Zaino etc,etc. All the highest quality products that I use on my own vehicle.

If anyone wants the finish,protection, and longevity of doing the whole Zaino process correctly but doesnt have the time, this is your answer!

Typically I would like to spend around 8-10hrs on a vehicle, so if you can drop your car off for a day it would be perfect.

I am 20 minutes north of Boston.

Dave

I've used JD from Autosalon Detailing in Winchester/MA and he is one of the best detailers I've ever met. He is very very particular and will use the product you want (he is also using Zaino if you want) and very reasonable priced. He is a great guy and can also do pick-up/delivery or loaner cars if needed. He does a lot of high-end cars and many years of experience. I usually don't trust any detailer with my car but he's the only I let touch my X

His website is at http://www.autosalondetailing.com

Jan: I will second your opinion of the quality of JD's work. I have nothing but great things to say about the quality of his work and personal commitment to deliver a quality job. He is very meticulous. I have had excellent results with JD using Zaino on my X5 and my X3. Autosalon Detailing in Winchester, MA is highly recommended!!!

Have any products that would take care of heavy swirls? I was thinking about going with Poor-boys swirl remover, but I didn't want to purchase an orbital with it. If you have anything to take care of heavy swirls, I'll try and come to you.

Well there's whole religion on how to detail a car. If you are using Zaino Sal from Zaino just released his SMR and folks have written rave reviews about. You can find it at "Zaino PC Dual Action Paint Cleaner and Swirl Remover"

The list below is from a detailing fanatic on the ///M board ("meem") in case you have a few days to spare
He is using Menzerna which is used by many of the German high-end car companies :

1. wash with dawn or something that wil strip wax/residue
2. apply p21s paintwork cleaner
3. wash to remove excess paintwork cleaner
4. clay car (prima clay from detailer's paradise is good)
5. wash to remove residue
6. apply intensive polish + yellow pad
7. wash + repeat (6) until major micromarring is gone
8. apply po106 + orange pad, or fp2 + white pad
9. wash + repeat (8) until haze is gone
10. apply 85rd + black pad
11. repeat (10) until you reach desired clarity
12. wash to remove residue
13. wax with whatever you like
14. remove unneeded wax using damp microfiber
15. do final wash -- pressure-wash seams if possible to get rid
of any polish residue that may be lurking
16. dry -- i like using an electric leaf blower these days

I would think i'd have to do this over a 2-3 day period.
