At Lord's Detailing and Car Wash, technicians spurn mechanized car washes and opt to make over autos, boats, and even planes with their own two hands. With compulsive attention to detail and topnotch products, they swiftly hand scrub vehicles from roofs to tires and coat paint with wax to replenish moisture and shine. Inside cabs and trunks, they vanquish clutter before sudsing up carpets and reconditioning delicate leather, vinyl, or papier-mâché seats.
