Hello everyone!

First of all, we are very happy to be a supporting vendor, this is a great forum, I have been a member here for years.

My personal wish and our goal is to help and educate both the newcomer and the seasoned pro to become not only better at detailing, but also make the detailing process much easier. I know how it can get pretty confusing at times.

Let me also say, that we do things a little different from other companies. For one, we actually manufacture our own products in Santa Clarita Ca. :cheers:

2 - I'll be here to answer to the best of my ability any detailing related questions. I will tell you and teach you how to really achieve your goals.
No sugar coating, but, I think you will like it!

Ok, enough of the intro, let me just show you how well these products work. (Can you tell that I am a detailer?:D)

These products don't hide, when the defects are removed, they are gone!

Here is a fairly recent detail I did. The truck is over 20 years old and it has never been detailed. I was asked to clean it up. :eek:

I mean how do you "clean" something like this up? I only know one way and that is to make it look perfect. So in a day and a half I "cleaned" it up as much as possible.

The paint was thick, so I had enough clear to work with, thank goodness.

Items used:

Dual Action machine

Flex 3401

Products used:

1 - HD UNO with a black wool pad to level the paint

2 - HD POLISH with an orange pad to polish the paint

3 - HD SPEED with a black pad to clean and final polish the paint

4 - HD POXY on a blue pad to apply protection

General condition of the paint - this is the hood

Left front fender was the worst panel. For some reason it had more water spots that the rest of the truck

These HD products are a private label for you?

How many years have you been detailing?

LOL! It is me Thomas Dekany!

Long time no see. :thumbup:

3D/HD actually manufactures it's own chemicals right there in Santa Clarita CA.

3D/HD also makes products for other companies, you would be surprised! :D

HD UNO, HD POLISH, HD SPEED, HD POXY, HD NITRO SEAL (patent panding) are all unique products.

I think I posted my first Pro detail on Autopia in 2004.

Thanks for asking
