[b]After twenty five pages, I figured to start with a fresh sheet of digital paper and update all the tips and techniques to 2008 spec

Instead of focusing on products, lets focus on techniques, that is more important than the product

I have done text, now it's time to do videos as that will be easier to understand and it will always be here for you all to return too if necessary

Not a dye or a dressing.

Videos are turning out well Matt.
This will be a good eye opener for the people out there to see how far detailing can actually be taken.
