Message from Bob McKee: Auto Detailing Supplies for the Trade
Back in the day, when I was a little less experienced (OK, a lot!), I focused solely on finding the ultimate product for the job—which car wax lasted longest, shone the most, gave the most bang for the buck; Which leather conditioner yielded the most tactile, supple, inviting surface; Which tire dressing applied the neatest, and offered the greatest longevity and the deepest, richest gloss. I so entwined myself in these issues, that I failed to take into consideration one essential element: What auto detailing supplies are used to apply or remove the product is every bit as important to the final outcome as the product itself!
Not a new concept! Imagine something other than the world of car care (gasp!) if you would, such as, let’s say, carpentry. Compare your wax with know-how, your car with the finished product. You have the best carpentry training available (carnauba wax), a designer kitchen to trim out (the latest model Corvette)…what’s missing? The detailing tools to do the job! It may be possible to cut molding with an old-fashioned hand saw, but you’d be much happier with the results if you have a workshop full of Makita, DeWalt and Milwaukee power tools at your disposal. A carpenter is as good as the tools he uses.
Same goes for car care—the best show car wax, paint sealant, tire dressing or leather conditioner in the world can’t perform to its maximum capacity when applied with the wrong applicator. The staff at Palm Beach Motoring Accessories and myself have compiled what we feel to be all of the must-haves in microfiber towels, foam applicators, detailing brushes, drying towels, car buffers and polishers, as well as the goodies—extra stuff to make detailing your ride a whole lot of fun. The right detailing tools will make your job easier, quicker, produce a better outcome and all-around a better experience. No matter what task you wish to perform, no matter how basic or obscure, we have the tried and true detailing tool for you. And, we will only sell quality products that we would use ourselves. Many of these auto detailing supplies are versatile, and you’ll want a second or a third for detailing around the house, RV or boat. We’ve scoured the world for the best of the best in quality and value, and they’re only a click away.
