Car detailing is both an art and a science, and without a proper appreciation for each of those components, a do-it-your-selfer might stand to ruin a great deal by using the wrong rulebook, products, and procedure.
If you’re nonetheless bold enough to try and tackle the task yourself, a Los Angeles-based outfit known as Chemical Guys are happy to provide you with both the product and the know-how to give it a proper go. The video above, for instance, shows how one might detail a dusty, garage-kept 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca.
This particular Boss 302 Laguna Seca, like most, is painted black; it was one of two available factory colors for each year of production (2012, 2013). As such, the gang from Chemical Guys is using a “Black Car Care Kit” made especially for tending to black paint. The specificity of the kit allows each product to be matched more precisely to that shade, so that by the end of the detailing, this 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca comes out looking wetter, shinier, and better than showroom stock.
