When you love your car or truck, you want it to look the absolute best. You want to turn heads no matter where you go or what else it may be competing against. Making your car or truck look that spectacular means more than just a simple wash, it means a complete auto detail from top to bottom.

Ultimate Auto Detailing Projects is the best guide for getting every inch of your car spotless and looking great. It teaches you about cleaning paint and underbelly; plastic and vinyl; leather, cloth and carpet; wheels and tires and even components under the hood. When you’re at a car show, your hood is going to be open, and you want that engine so bright it practically blinds the judges.

It has full color photos and images with step-by-step instruction for you to follow. There are so many different projects to choose from, and they are broken down so anyone can understand. There are even tables that tell you how long it will take, what you need and how much it will cost. You’ll be the envy of everyone when you drive your fully detailed car around town and into the local car show.

You’ll blow away the competition because you took the time to get every nook and cranny clean. This book covers everything from the basic wash and wax to cleaning the engine bay and pristine tire care.

Ultimate Auto Detailing Projects is a must have for any car show enthusiast or anyone that truly loves their car and how it looks.
