Default Annnnnndd I'm Back!! PAF v2.0

As many of you know I owned PAF for almost 7 years, and if you didn't, now you do. I grew the business too quickly, moved into a 9500sqft building and lost my focus on what I was originally working to build. I have learned a lot since then, going back to work for corporations, dabbling in other businesses, etc, but I needed to make something my own again. I present you :


Rightfully named as I am focused on taking my detailing process to the next level. I am investing in some awesome equipment, like the latest dual-action/rotary buffers, mini buffers for hard to reach areas, a pro-grade european steam cleaner, spotless water filter, semi-permanent ceramic coatings, and longer lasting leather and fabric protectants. To avoid another pitfall, the stress of employees and overhead, I am going fully mobile, or working from my home garage. Yes, now I can come to you!

I have also reworked my detail packaged and now offer an Express Detail for an in between detail freshening up. My website is not ready quite yet, but you can see some info on the different services on my FB page. Next-Level Detailing

The weather the next couple days looks bad, but this weekend is forecasting 50 and 60s and sunny so if you need to get that winter grime off give me a call!

PM me if you have some kind of pricing structure already worked out.

My In-Laws are probably pulling the 427, and F-type out of storage soon, and they may be interested in having it done in their driveway instead of having to bring them somewhere.

Hit me up @ktraver97ss (you need a new SN) about what you would charge for stage 2 on my RAM. I could be game by early March assuming salt is gone.

Hit me up if you ever need an apprentice on the weekends.
I have a Flex 3401 but am dying to learn how to correctly use a rotary.

How do you price something like that out? I'm interested in getting this done

I basically quote $60/hr and estimate the number of passes it will take to correct, and also the level of perfection expected by the customer. What kind of vehicle are you looking to get worked on?

I was pretty bad at remembering to take pics back in the day so this is the only comparison I have handy. This was a full detail I did back at the original PAF shop. I'm def going to get some direct before and after shots by taping off sections once the weather warms up a bit more around here.
