Twin Cities Detailing’s professional cleaners reanimate ailing interiors and revamp dull finishes with paint sealants and Menzerna polishes during comprehensive detailing services. During the 8–10-hour interior detail, vehicle cleaners vacuum the interior and shampoo the mats and carpets. They then treat the seats with protectants and wipe down windows, mirrors, dashes, and panels until they’re as clean as Mother Nature’s apron. This option also includes a Scotchgard treatment, which protects the newly revamped innards from future damage.
Both the complete basic detail, which takes 10–14 hours, and the ultimate detail, which takes one–two days, begin with an engine cleaning and dressing to slough off buildup and protect the motor from grease, grime, and high cholesterol. In the ultimate detail, auto doctors clay or spot clay entire exteriors before performing a three-step Menzerna polishing treatment that removes fine scratches and swirls from the frame and shines the car’s body, down to the metal trim and chrome. Technicians also crawl inside the car to wipe down the interior, vacuum its carpet, spot clean upholstery, and treat leather. An optional wheel removal and cleaning de-gunks the inside and outside of the rim and dresses each tire in a choice of low-fat vinaigrettes.
Twin Cities Detailing
Dave Juntunen made his foray into the automotive industry in 1996 by working as a restoration technician for Kirk's Volkswagen—one of the largest facilities of its kind in the United States at the time. He started out with washing and waxing, but his detail-oriented personality prevented him from cutting any corners. Eventually, he progressed to exacting tasks such as paint correction, clear-coat restoration, and wet sanding. He also studied stain, scratch, dent, and paint technology.
With this knowledge, Dave started his own auto garage for exotic and European vehicles, which he dubbed Top Gear Autoworks. He later founded Twin Cities Detailing, where he and two other technicians primp elite chariots such as Lamborghinis, Mercedes, and ancient Roman quadrigas. They offer everything from basic details to in-depth sessions featuring clay-bar treatments, Menzerna products, and a three-step polishing process. When they aren't washing roadsters, Dave and his team repair upholstery, apply tinted window films, and decorate façades with pin striping to make autos look slim.
