Good place to get my car detailed

I tried to claybar/polish/wax my car and wasn't satisfied with the results. I still have a ton of little scratches and swirl marks everywhere. It doesn't help having a black car either!

I obviously don't have the patience/experience to do this right and would rather not f up my paint. So, can somebody recommend a shop or somebody to detail my car the right way(somebody in northern colorado would be great).

Thanks in advance,

I used to work at "bear's car wash" at wadsworth and belleview in Lakewood, There was an older black guy who did all the swirl mark removal and wet sanding and he did my old 95' eclipse. It looked amazing, like I just got it painted and he said it would last for about a year. i'm not sure how much it would be but probably around 50-100 bucks.

I'm about ready to splurge on something like that, so I might contact Daniel. It's been close to 4 years now without any attention.

I think he is in the Denver area, but Im pretty sure he has done cars in the springs.
As soon as I get some spare cash I will have him go over my car.

What I offer is a premium service for your car.

Unlike other "detailers", or if you can even call them that, I take step processes to ensure the best outcome possible. I use premium microfiber towels, 2 step bucket methods, best quality polishes (menzerna,prima) and your choice of wax.

Most people don't understand that there are processes to get rid of swirls and junk on your clear coat before you can really get the whole nine yards of the wax or awesome look you want your car to look like.
Most customers I detail have never claybarred their car nor put protection of synthetic wax to protect it from water etchings and such.

First, if you're just washing your car and waxing it, the wax will only look great for 1-2 days because you're layering the wax on top of contaminated clear coat.

Claybar will remove anything a car wash cannot get, like tree sap, tar, pollution, and other things that get clogged up on your clear coat.

Polish will remove the swirls / scratches / water etchings that are on your clear coat

Then a choice of your wax will protect & gloss your clear coat.

Synthetic wax is a popular choice by most Colorado people because it protects and beads the clear coat nicely. It will last around 2-3 months depending on your washes and the weather.
Carnuaba wax is a choice for people that want the best shine for the car show the next day or something to impress their next door neighbors.

Although I can't put everything on words of what other choices you have, i can definitely explain everything in person and answer most of your questions. I don't just like detailing a client's vehicle, I love to explain to them on how to maintain a swirl-free car. I treat every car I do like my own; I'm a car fanatic.

Here are some pictures of before & afters.












What I did for this customer is a 2 step process polish. I cut down the swirls with a hard pad (orange pad), then I had to reduce the haziness in the clearcoat with a softer pad(white) and a different polish for a much glossier finish. I then waxed the car with synthetic wax to protect it, because that's what the customer wanted.

Note: you can put synthetic wax to protect then always put carnuaba wax maybe a day after for a car show.

another thing is... the choice of your towels and the way you dry your cars is a HUGE thing for maintaining a swirl-free car. I offer premium Microfiber towels for drying and waxing that i took a long time to find the right manufacturers. The microfiber i chose are from korea/china the only places that have the machine to intertwine the weaves on a premium microfiber that even the fingers cannot feel (thats how soft it is)
