I AM NOT ONE OF THOSE "DO IT ALL" SERVICES FOR ONE LOW PRICE. EVERY PROJECT IS DIFFERENT, EVERY CUSTOMER HAS DIFFERENT WANTS AND EXPECTATIONS.  I DO NOT ENGAGE IN THE PRACTICE OF OFFERING ENTICING , LOW BALL PRICING IN AN EFFORT TO EARN YOUR BUSINES.
​I TAKE THE TIME TO GO OVER AND DISCUSS THE PROJECT IN DEPTH WITH YOU. FOR THE AUTO REFINERY, THIS PRACTICE IS THE BEST WAY TO EARN YOUR BUSINESS. CUSTOMER SERVICE, SATISFACTION AND YOUR REFERRALS HAVE BEEN KEY TO MY SUCCESS.

Many customers come to The Auto Refinery knowing we can add value to their trade-in or private sale vehicle 

​'98 Corvette got prepped to sell for The Turkey Run at Daytona International Speedway                SOLD BEFORE NOON ON THE​ FIRST DAY                      

Bug splatter, bird droppings, hard water spots, and acid rain adhere to the surface, but also penetrate the surface. These types of contaminants can leave stains and etchings particularly on negelected and unprotected surfaces.

Too many "professional" detailers will reach for their one step polish and dual action polisher or high speed buffer (great tool, but you better know how and when to use it!) Improper vehicle care or untrained detailers who “buff” cars can leave behind micro-scratches, buffer trails, holograms or worse!

 

    

Experience has shown that no single tool, product or family of products is the answer to every project. Wet sand, where/when ? If yes, what grit or series of grit ? Foam pads or microfiber pads? Heavy, medium or light cut pads ? Wool pad ? Dual Action or High Speed Rotary buffer? Heavy, medium or light cut compound? Everything must follow in progression, from most abrassive to least with every pad /product used. Is this project a three step project or ten step?

   THIS 1964 JAGUAR XKE CONVERTIBLE CAME OUT OF LONG TERM CLIMATE CONTROLLED STORAGE TO GET PREPPED FOR A CONCOURSE SHOW. PART OF THE 53 YEAR HISTORY BEHIND THIS RARE BEAUTY IS THAT IT APPEARED IN A CONCOURSE SHOW SOME TEN YEARS AGO WHEN JUDGES GAVE IT A SCORE OF 98. ONE OF THE THOSE JUDGES WAS WAYNE CARINI.
