Focus: DI

As I sort of alluded to in my post a few weeks ago What I’m Interested In, For Now, our sole focus as a business right now is Detailed Image. Really, it’s been that way for a while.

They make high end coatings that provide more protection and last much longer than the typical wax or sealant (up to 24 months). When this opportunity arose we put in a lot… Continue reading
