Default Incomplete posts

There are others, I have just not chased them down yet. I am looking to use these links to train my 14 and 12 year old's how to wash and eventually detail Dad's cars properly!

I will work on updating some of the links if you all would like me to. Some of the methods, techniques, products used are a bit outdated. And like any other business, our industry changes as well and new proceedures and products come out as does new paint technology by the automotive manufacturers....
