David Patterson: Backyard Engineer
David Patterson has been a friend for a few years and supports the podcast probably as much as I've supported Oberk, so it was time we had him on to tell his story. Dave spent a good amount of time talking about his time at Lake Country Mfg and what goes into pad development.  We talked about his involvement with Oberk in the beginning and how it transitioned into a full-time gig and having an ownership stake in it.  Support this show and follow us on Facebook: @thedetailsolutionspodcast and @thedetailsolutionspodcastdiscussiongroup or on instagram: @thedetailsolutionspodcast and YouTube: The Detail Solutions Podcast You can find our sponsors at: www.vyperindustrial.com use code DSP25 www.iglcoatingsusa.com for JenK.O. www.detailersroadmap.com www.facebook.com/groups/detailersroadmap www.oberkcarcare.com use code TRYME for 20%off your first order of Oberk Car Care's new products. www.detailedimage.com use code detailsolutions10 for 10% off your purchase www.southerndetailersconference.com use code alex15

WOYM: Disaster Detailing w/ Jason Killmer, Brian Guy and Eddy Fiuza
Jason Killmer called me one day and said he'd like to come on the podcast and talk about Disaster Detailing.  With a lot of YouTube detailers doing Disaster or Barn Find detailing he thought there could be some good information to get out to new or inexperienced detailers.  We invited Brian Guy and Eddy Fiuza because of their experiences with detailing rare and hard to find cars.  Eddy tells a few horror stories of a detailer not knowing the correct way to clean these types of cars and how it can go wrong.  Jason and Brian talk about how sometimes its ok to tell a customer "NO".  Support this show and follow us on Facebook: @thedetailsolutionspodcast and @thedetailsolutionspodcastdiscussiongroup or on instagram: @thedetailsolutionspodcast and YouTube: The Detail Solutions Podcast You can find our sponsors at: www.vyperindustrial.com use code DSP25 www.iglcoatingsusa.com for JenK.O. www.detailersroadmap.com www.facebook.com/groups/detailersroadmap www.oberkcarcare.com use code TRYME for 20%off your first order of Oberk Car Care's new products. www.detailedimage.com use code detailsolutions10 for 10% off your purchase www.southerndetailersconference.com use code alex15

Jennifer Turcotte: In HER own words.
Jennifer Turcotte has been on just about every podcast or YouTube show and it's one of the reasons I've never invited her on to tell her story.  So, why now you might be asking? Well as many know Jen has decided to leave igl and she wanted to come on the podcast and tell her side of what REALLY happened and clear the rumors up.  In doing so we get to hear a side of Jen that I don't think has been told before on any other podcast.  Jen really opens up about her life and also the demons she's faced.  There were a couple of times where I thought I might have to change the subject because Jen started to get a little emotional, but she pulled through it.  Support this show and follow us on Facebook: @thedetailsolutionspodcast and @thedetailsolutionspodcastdiscussiongroup or on instagram: @thedetailsolutionspodcast and YouTube: The Detail Solutions Podcast You can find our sponsors at: www.vyperindustrial.com use the code DSP25 to save an additional $25 off any deals they have. www.iglcoatingsusa.com for JenK.O. www.detailersroadmap.com www.oberkcarcare.com use code TRYME for 20%off your first order of Oberk Car Care's new products. www.detailedimage.com use code detailsolutions10 for 10% off your purchase Southern Detailers Conference use code Alex15, for 15% off your tickets

Justyna Brys "Don't make your clients smarter"
Finally got to talk to one of the bad ass ladies of detailing.  I've followed Justyna for years now on Instagram and she's been an inspiration to push me to be better.  Justyna talks about starting her car wash/detailing career when she was 19 back in 1995.  She talks about how she was never the "face" of the business because she's just a blonde girl.  Now Justyna is one of the more known detailers in the world and holds trainings around the world.  Support this show and follow us on Facebook: @thedetailsolutionspodcast and @thedetailsolutionspodcastdiscussiongroup or on instagram: @thedetailsolutionspodcast and YouTube: The Detail Solutions Podcast You can find our sponsors at: www.hypercleanstore.com use code detail15 www.iglcoatingsusa.com for JenK.O. www.detailersroadmap.com www.oberkcarcare.com use code TRYME for 20%off your first order of Oberk Car Care's new products. www.detailedimage.com use code detailsolutions10 for 10% off your purchase

Fun with Fermani: You charged how much!?
Dave Fermani made a post in a Facebook group about doing a wash, decon and ceramic coating for $4000 and the detail industry lost their collective minds.  I wanted to bring Dave on to answer some of the questions that I had heard from people and to clear the air about the post.  What I've taken away from all this is we as an industry need to stop whining and get to work.  If you have the time to complain on FB or Tik Tok about someone else's business you're not doing a very good job of running yours.

One of the sayings i see posted the most in any detailing group or forum by so called "Greats" in detailing is, "Good work isn't cheap and cheap work isn't good".  Yet I see countless of these detailers using cheap tools, towels and products.  I've heard of shops stretching coatings to be able to do more cars cheaper.  I've seen detailers use a $7-$10 pads long after it should have been tossed in order to save money.  I've seen detailers using Chinese knockoff tools just to save a buck.  Eric Joseph and Dylan Von Kleist join us this week to discuss the importance of supporting maufactuers that help and support the industy.  Support this show and follow us on Facebook: @thedetailsolutionspodcast and @thedetailsolutionspodcastdiscussiongroup or on instagram: @thedetailsolutionspodcast and YouTube: The Detail Solutions Podcast You can find our sponsors at: www.hypercleanstore.com use code detail15 www.iglcoatingsusa.com for JenK.O. www.detailersroadmap.com www.oberkcarcare.com use code DSP20 for 20% off wheel cleaner for 3/22 www.detailedimage.com use code detailsolutions10 for 10% off your purchase

David Fermani has been saying it for a while now, Raise Your Prices!  Every other industry, business, product you name it is more expensive than ever before, yet detailers are still charging bottom tier pricing.  The dollar store isn't even a dollar any more why can't detailers follow suit and charge more?

How do you cope with depression, stress or anxiety? I get it running a business is HARD, but as they say if it were easy everyone would do it.  on this episode we talked with Manny Cruzado who's only been in business for 8 mos and going through the trials of being a startup.  We also were lucky enough to have Michael Hine and his wife Kinga who is a mental health and grief consoler.  During the holidays/end of the year it's a tough time for a lot of us and this is when depression usually sets in.  We discuss ways to deal with the stress of the holidays and trying to meet end of year deadlines or goals.  If anyone if ever feeling down, you can always message me, and I'll do my best to be someone to listen.

December 02, 2021
WOYM: Stop detailing for other detailers!
I made a post about a vehicle I did for a great client and posted it in 2 Facebook detail groups.  One group knew what I was doing and for the most everyone had a good ol' laugh.  In the other group where people don't really know me, these detailers lost their damn minds.  Listen to the episode to hear the story, but the if you take anything away from this episode I hope it's to STOP DETAILING FOR OTHER DETAILERS!! Also I want to thank Tuscarora Dave aka David Reigle for jumping on and asking the questions he did about the post.

Kody Kimball is THE guy
After talking with the face of Kimball's hands on detailing, I had to get the brains of the organization on and that is Kody Kimball.  Kody used his business education to start a detailing business with his dad Joe and they have quickly grown into a very successful business in their town.  Kody tells me him and his dad are kind of like Paul Sr and Jr from Orange County Choppers, except the don't smash doors they usually just throw bottles at each other.

WOYM: SEMA; Did the industry get it wrong?
It's SEMA week and I had hoped to be there rubbing elbows with everyone and recording the podcast from the show.  When a lot of the detail companies started pulling out it started a chain reaction with the detailers not going too.  I cancelled my trip because I thought it would be dead and a waste of money.  So we talked with Barry Theal from SB3 coatings and Tommy Davis from AngelWax to find out how SEMA was going?  Looks like their gambled paid off as the show is a success and they each are doing BIG business with not only detailers from the states, but detailers from Central and South America, Italy, Dubai, China and so on.  
01:01:41

WOYM: The future of detailing
On last weeks Facebook live John Perdue posed the question "What do you think the future of our industry will look like in the next 10 years?" I thought that was a great question and so I wanted to bring on guys that've been around long enough to see how the industry has changed from 10 yrs ago, that they might have some input on where it could go.  John Perdue, Brian Guy and David Fermani are all guys that have seen the boom in detailing the last 10 yrs and I felt would have some great insight on the next 10 yrs.  So hope in the DeLorean with Jason Bruno and I as we set the time circuits for the year 2031 and see where detailing might be.
01:56:36
October 28, 2021
Yvan Lacroix
I had the pleasure of landing Yvan for the podcast kind of last minute.  Yvan as many of you know has a long career in the detailing industry and has developed or helped develop a lot of the products we all use today.  We had some technical difficulties being that Yvan travels by bus and sometimes Wi-Fi can be spotty.  I tried to trim it the best i could but there might still be some spots.  Please remember to like, share, and subscribe wherever you listen to the podcast so you can catch all the new episodes.  Also if you're on Facebook please join the Detail Solutions Podcast discussion group, You can comment on episodes, make suggestions for topics and suggest who you'd like to hear on an episode.

WOYM: Doing more than needed/Peacocking
First things first i apologize for this episode for many reasons.  It is not Jason Bruno and I's best or even 100th best episode but we had fun and that's all that matters.  We started talking about detailers who try to hard or overthink themselves and it quickly spiraled from there.  The ending is hilarious even with the edit so Jason isn't cancelled.  
59:45

How to pick the right coating company?
Almost every day I read a post in any detail Facebook where a detailer is asking "What's the best coating" or "I'm looking for a new coating brand, What's the best?" I assembled a group of detailers that I feel have great knowledge on said question and had them explain or at least attempt to explain an answer.  Tony Kiger has so much experience and knowledge of coatings. Jason Killmer probably understands paint better than anyone on the planet.  David Fermani knows more about detailing than most ever will. And then there's Jason Bruno and myself.  I'm not sure if we truly answered any of the questions, but I feel the knowledge put out will give a lot of detailers something to think about when choosing a coating brand.
01:28:42
September 16, 2021
WOYM: Does being certified make you a professional?

Jason Killmer, Take Two!
We had some technical difficulties with the first interview with Jason, meaning our audio tech forgot to hit the record button.  Things happen for a reason though right?  I feel this interview was the better of the two and had a little mistake not been made we wouldn't have this version.  Jason is known all over the world as "The Sandman" and probably is if not the best one of the best people in the world for sanding paint.  He is 1/3 of KXK Dynamics and has pretty much done it all.

WOYM: Is the art of detailing lost?
Barry posed the question that the "Art of detailing" was lost, meaning not enough detailers are doing the "details" of detailing a car.  He said we've become "coating specialists", so that got me thinking have we really given up on the details just to chase money or provide a certain service that doesn't require getting deep into a car.  I reached out to my buddy Todd Helme and he suggested we bring David Fermani on too.  Now these guys are GIANTS in the detailing world and their portfolios prove that.  They both had different views but ultimately agree the art of detailing isn't lost.

On this episode Jason and I talk with Nick Walters from Vegas Rides about the coating bubble.  Are the days of $2k plus coating jobs on their way out?  With so many coating companies changing their ceramics to a single layer application and pushing the 1-2 yr coatings v. the 5 year plus will we see coating prices drop? How will detailers survive if or when the bubble pops and guys can longer maintain the high dollar coating price?  What about the detailer who thinks so much of him or herself that big dollar coating jobs are all they do?  We try to answer these and other questions as best as we can to give everyone some sort of advance warning.
