Default Opening car detailing shop..!

This spring I'm opening a detailing shop,
what's the detailing steps one should do.
I normally wash then apply paint cleaner, than wax, followed by quick detailer to remove any dust and cars look like new.
I'm asking all you pro's for the best possible detailing steps to provide me knowledge.
I been detailing for 5 years but only used consumer products not (PROFESSIONAL) products or other big league products..

If my steps are wrong, please feel free to point me in right direction .

Wrong is a relative term.

If the vehicle needs claying, then you should introduce a claying step.

If the vehicle would benefit from a sealer & glaze step, then you should do that.

Check out the Detail Guide and let us know if you have any questions about any steps that you might be missing.

Try using the chrome polish on the windshield and other windows.

The detail guide is great

The recommendation of Mothers Chrome Polish on glass is a great tip, but it's hardly an all-inclusive primer on professional detailing.

Again, check out the Detail Guide and start building your knowledge bank with other resources.

And better yet, work for an established shop for a few years and you'll learn a heck of a lot, including that it's tougher to open a shop than it looks.
