Phil, awesome work. Now when your clientele take their vehicles home, do they wash and mar the paint all over again, or do they not even bother washing themselves and just bring it back to you?

Been curious, as it must suck seeing this kind of work and time put in just to have it all jacked up again by people who don't know about detailing.

Thanks.
