To my surprise, there aren’t a great deal of sites dedicated to the ‘how to’ of detailing. Here are some of my favorites – as I come across more I will add them.

  • DetailingWiki – This is a wiki dedicated to detailing that contains a wealth of information. The detailingwiki site is what inspired me to develop this site. One of the problems with the detailingwiki is that it often doesn’t flow properly and can get confusing. Nevertheless, I highly recommend it.
