Silver Star

Eliot, I asked around. I do my own detailing. You could call Peter at Silver Star in Vienna and ask him. He's a great guy to deal with for repairs. I'm sure he could recommend some good detailers.

What did you come up with, Eliot? Have you found anyone worth recommending?

Not yet, I'll post up as soon as I have it done. The vehicle in question is my brothers and it still need a right front fender and a new hood (all of which are on some mysterious and quite slow freighter). The parts are freebies from the guy who nearly took his hand off in a shop accident. When they arrive and get them fitted then its a trip to the detailer... the car needs it pretty badly. Especially some interior attention.

Thank you though, I very much apreciated your help. Hopefully I can get in touch with Peter before the end of the month.

- Eliot

There is a Meguiars rep who lives in Boyds, MD ( has had some seminars at his beautiful home ) I think he has posted on this forum. If you do a search you may be able to find him and get a recommendation.
I mention him because at one of his seminars that I went to at his home, some of the detailer that attended were excellent. I mean really GOOD.
I do all my detailing myself with Zaino, but if I were to hand my car over to someone else I would attempt to contact him for a name.

I'd like to go to one

Ethan, how'd you find out about that? I'd like to go to one of those seminars. Are you on some sort of a mailing list for that or something?

actually I think I found out about it on the www.mbca.org forum, I just went to that site but couldn't find the info.

you may be able to go to the meguiars site to get more info.


The instructor was a very talented detailer, his black paint on his SUV was the best I've ever seen and when the instructor wet sanded a rental car hood it was remarkable.
