Phil, what's your take on polishing older cars without a clear coat?

I'm not a fan but if you can let the customer know what you are doing, and he/she can take care of it I don't mind.

I have to do a 930 turbo in guards red late winter/early spring and he's well aware of what we are doing.

full correction, glaze, and some carnauba wax, his car is a concours winner so he gets it.

Very nice work, and great shop fixture you have lol... Question, in your experience will detail shops get offended if I buy your products and bring them to their shop to use? Will pretty much any detailer know how to use all of these products? Or are some more advanced than others?

I believe most will be offended.

but if they are I would move on to the next shop.

A good shop should be using some of these products.
