Detailing Shop, NJ

Anyone know a good detailing shop in NJ? I need to get rid of the swirls in the paint, and I don't want to to use sealant and machine buffer on my own. Any references would be appreciated!!

Thanks!

I buy my stuff from them, and you only need to look at their instruction videos to see they know what they're doing.

Can't say I've used their services though.

EXCELLENT recommendation. I've been dealing with the owner (Phil) of Detailers Domain for over 5 years now. I buy almost all my car care stuff from him. I've seen his write-ups on Rennlist for many years. His work is top shelf. At the very least, get on his email list, to receive his sale promotions for supplies.

Look into a full paint correction (2-3 stages depending how deep your scratches are) and maybe a final coating like OptiCoat Pro. I had my brand new C2S just completed by my Chicago area detailer (Lustr). Med/light polish for full correction and OptiCoat Pro. Was a $1k. Car looks stellar. Stays clean longer. When I wash it, dirt and bug guts just fall right off.

thanks bros... $1k sounds like a lot of dough but still a fraction of a new paint job... I'll make an appointment with them and let you guys know the deeets.

Paint correction is not a very hard do it yourself job. It's nearly impossible to screw up your paint if you're using an orbital polisher and if you take your time $400 will make the car look just painted. And of course you get to keep the tools for the next round. You keep $600 in your pocket for those detailing jobs that really do require an expert hand like paint chips, leather repair, pdr, etc.
Now a days we have YouTube channels like Drive Clean with Larry Kossila to walk any newbie through paint correction step by step. 10-15 years ago most didn't know half these methods even existed or knew where to buy all this stuff.
