New to Acura, but not to Detailing

Hi Everyone... just wanted to introduce myself as I recently picked up this 2014 MDX...

... and since I turned down any dealer prep/cleaning, I wasted no time getting it washed properly.



I plan on documenting my detailing process as I work my way through the paint correction and nano coating applications.

I was a professional detailer who specialized in "higher end detailing", meaning almost exclusively paint correction, nano coating, and other specialized work. I sold that business earlier this year, but detailing is still a major part of my life. Since this is the detailing forum, some of you may be familiar with the Detailed Image Ask-A-Pro Blog, where you can find a bunch of articles written by myself and other professionals. I do still produce content for them as I never plan to stop learning and testing things in the detailing world

Anyway, just wanted to say hello, and mention that I hope to contribute to this forum when I can and am more than happy to answer any detailing related questions.

-Zach

Welcome Zach! Love reading your reviews on DI.com
Planning for the winter I was reading earlier this week your review of CarPro EcH20. Excellent review.

Welcome to the forum. Can't wait to see your progress.
