Did you know your local law enforcement is equip with a special meter that can measure the darkness of your window tint? The laws vary state-to-state as to what percent darkness you are allowed or not allowed to have on your vehicle. For us Arizonians, it is required to have minimum of 33% light transmission on the front two windows. The rear glass can be as dark as you prefer. Our friends over at Rayno Window Film put together a flow chart showing the laws nationwide across each state. Take a look by clicking here
The pinnacle of all things automobile, Monterrey Car Week has so many events for car enthusiasts it will make even the craziest car fanatic's head spin. Our mission during this week was to prepare and shine up all the rare, exotic and classic cars alike for the notorious McCall Motorworks Revival Event at the Monterrey Jet Center, and at The Quail. For Gordon McCall's event, we performed a little bit of everything with our team; from basic wipe and prep, to paint corrections, sealants and even coatings, these extraordinary vehicles looked spectacular for the main event in the evening. Aside from cars from Ferrari (both old and new), the new Ford GT, hypercars like the Koenigsegg and Porsche 918, there were also several aircraft that were flown in for the party. Gordon McCall puts on one hell of a show, and we along with the entire Gordon McCall Detailing Team would like to thank you Gordon for inviting us and being an awesome host!

After a night full of good food, cocktails, and rubbing shoulders with VIP's like John Hennessey and Camilo Pardo (the designer of the Ford GT), our next stop for the week was The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering.
Staged on the Quail Lodge fields, this show is the elite of the elite of high-end automobiles. Koenigseggs, Bugatti (both the Chiron and Veyrons were present), Concept One, Karma, Audi, Lamborghini, Ferrari, only begin to scratch the surface of the rare and phenomenal brands of eye-candy represented at this event.
This was our first time at Car Week, and it surely won't be our last! A huge thank you to P&S Detailing Products, Bob & Dave Phillips, Renny & Diane Doyle, Gordon McCall, and every team member who made this week a success and one that has made dreams become a reality!

When one thinks of Porsche, usually some of the trending thoughts that come to mind are: German engineered race car, road & track performance, with a bit of luxury and timeless style. This 1985 911 Carrera has all of the above, but was made into something special by none other than Patrick Long! Transformed into an East African Rally car, this beauty was auctioned off for charity and was picked up by our client. We had the honor and opportunity to perform our express detail service mobile to clean her up after a trip in Colorado to rid the exterior of rubber, mud, and some loose gravel still stuck in the treads.
This car was featured on Jay Leno's Garage, check out the video below to get the full scoop on this awesome ride!
Now and then a vehicle arrives to us that completely blows our minds when its complete. This is what drives us in our pursuit of high quality and unmatched results. This Ferrari 458 came to us with heavy scratches, swirls, and imperfections from improper care. While not perfect, we achieved approximately 90% perfection with our Stage 2 paint correction.

This Italian stallion also received a full front paint protection film to protect against rock chips from highway and daily driving. We offer XPEL Ultimate as well as Suntek Ultra, both which carry a 10 year warranty against cracking and yellowing. I want paint protection film, take me there now!
Furthermore, the 458 Italia also received our 5 Year Warranted ceramic coating by Ceramic Pro. This offers a 2 layer system in which the first layer applied adds chemical and scratch resistance. The top layer provides a super slick, high-gloss, hydrophobic shield that adds UV protection, not to mention makes cleaning a breeze. Not only are these properties beneficial for ease of cleaning and low maintenance, but even sweeter, having a ceramic coating applied to your vehicle eliminates the need to ever wax it again!
Paint correction specialists and ceramic coatings are not all equal. It is dependent upon detailers' individual skill level, expertise, and attention to detail which determines the final outcome of the results, along with the products they choose to offer. We at Detail Boss are known for our expertise in paint correction and extensive experience with clear coat and installing ceramic coatings. We offer what we feel is the best not only in products we use, but tools, techniques and customer service to our clientele. With 14+ years of combined experience, training, continued educational programs, seminars, webinars, and events we attend, feel confident & comfortable that you are choosing an industry-leading brand.

This beautiful Porsche Panamera came in for its annual check-up after performing our Stage 2 paint correction and Ceramic Pro Silver Package. We performed a thorough exterior wash to rid the surface of any loose dirt and to ensure the coating is still exhibiting its properties. We then applied Ceramic Pro Sport overtop to add a sacrificial layer of protection until its next annual visit!
