I started LUSTR Detail in 2007 focusing on quality detailing services.  Over the years we’ve done a ton of paint corrections, PPF installations, coating applications and even basic detailing.  In addition, I have written many detailing articles to show the quality of our work and provide educational material for enthusiasts worldwide.  Our focus was always teaching clients to maintain their vehicles so they don’t waste money on our services only to be ruined by a bad hand or automatic car wash.

Due to all the experience in the world of detailing, we constantly get requests for car detail training and education from clients and professionals alike.  Also, many more of our clients are doing their own maintenance and detailing, so we’re starting up Car Detailing Training again.  We created 3 distinct options that accommodate individuals of all skill levels.  Each class is different and planned out according to the general skillset of those attending.  All training options are mostly hands-on, but allow for more than enough discussion between everyone attending.

Our Maintenance Class focuses on basic car care, so it’s all about proper washing and drying to avoid swirl marks, thorough detailing of specific areas to avoid buildup and general tips and tricks for keeping the car clean and shiny.

The Enhancement Training adds a lot of value to the Maintenance because we go into decontamination as well as light polishing.  We cover decon techniques such as clay bar, decon pads and chemicals.  After decon we cover light polishing techniques that clean up clay bar marring and light swirl marks to improve the paint finish.  Finally, we teach different kind of paint protection like sealants and ceramic coatings.

Advanced Training is where we cover the basics mentioned above, but mainly focus on thorough detailing and paint correction.  You’ll learn how to polish various panels on a car safely and effectively using different polishers.  We get into curves, edges and other complex surfaces using multiple pads and polishes for best results.  After the polishing each student will learn ceramic coatings with multiple products and different methods of application.

Needless to say, each training option has great benefits and even our basic class can be beneficial for a seasoned veteran.  Have a look through the options below and Contact Us with any questions and scheduling.

Thanks for visiting!

NOTE:  We also offer 1-on-1 Advanced and PPF training for anyone looking into a more custom tailored option.

I wrote this article a few years ago and it still applies today.  The article Why Apply a Ceramic Coating goes into a few different aspects like durability, performance and value of ceramic coatings.  I also cover some tips and tricks for those who want to apply a ceramic coating to their own vehicle.  While coating technology has been around for well over 10 years, it’s still the best value and performance in terms of protecting your paint.  Whether you pay a professional or apply it yourself, a ceramic coating is well worth the time and money.
