    "Claying"

    Hi all
    I'm showing my ignorance here but what is "Claying" and where does the term "Detailing" come from?
    With thanks................Neil (PROMETHEUS).

    the term detailing comes frome the USA. over here its known as a more in depth clean to get the best look possible. over valeting which is a quck wash.

    Detailing is just a posh word for a valet and means I can charge more for it

    Au Contraire, a valet is basically a clean inside and out, and polish with some trade products to make the car look clean.

    Detailing is almost an artform. Completely decontaminating the paintwork before removing and paint defects, then glossing to a high shine, and protecting with a good Last Stage Product (LSP)
