Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Detailing is the maintenance or restoration of an automobile's intended look, inside and out, using accepted techniques and materials. Joseph addresses every possible part of an automobile that needs this attention, including windows, vinyl, bumpers, wheels, chrome, cloth, body, and more. For each part, surface, or material that needs detailing, Joseph provides a materials list, estimates the time required, and recommends products and services. The text is explicit and the photographs are clear, making this required reading for any responsible automobile owner. Safety is stressed throughout. An appendix lists products and a useful glossary of terms. Recommended for school, public, and trade libraries.-- H. Robert Malinowsky, Univ. of Illinois at Chicago

This book is very descriptive and would be good if you really want to learn the basics. it describes detailing everywhere from vinyl tops to chassis care with intense description. It gives list of tools, products, and cleaners to get the job done. along with about how much time it will take. this book is very repetitive, and majorly commonsence, so if you dont have a clue how to care for you car beyond the five minute wash and vacuum i would suggest you read this book.
