This is a friends race car that was recently purchased from another race team and in need of some cleaning.

I also show proper technique for safe and easy sticker removal from your vehicles paint without destroying the clear coat or your finger tips! :)

$1,000,000 Ferrari Restoration Detail
This Ferrari is a good friend and customers car that was flown in the night before from the UK. It needed a bit of work to get it looking presentable again, and after a 2 day restoration... shouldn't need anything more than layers of sealant and wax for the rest of its life. (if cleaned and maintained properly in the future) This video shows you what I'm thinking about as I restore a $1 million car, and how understanding the interaction between different materials will effect the outcome of your work. The purpose of this video is not about "step by step" demonstration, but rather a glimpse of what professional detailers think about when working on extremely rare cars. Thanks for watching and send me an email if you have any questions. larry@ammonyc.com -Larry

BLEACH Damage on Black Paint!
This is a quick video about a buddies Mercedes CLS that had bleach accidentally ("misted") on the nose of the car during a gutter/roof/shutters cleaning. We noticed white-haziness along with dots of heavier penetration. Here is what I found out during the visit. I was happily surprised AMMO SKIN did its job extremely well. Find out what happened... (I've never heard of a case like this before...so I had to film it) FYI: I had a bunch of people walking around me who were still working on the house, so excuse the brevity and slightly awkwardness. I didn't want to make the workers feel worse than they already did, so I tried to be on the DL. Lastly, towards the end of the video, I describe the difference between paint SEALANT and WAX. If you understand this concept, you will be 10x better at caring for your car. As always, shoot me an email if you have any questions or ideas. Thx! larry@ammonyc.com

How to Wash your car in Winter: Ferrari F40
Here are 3 techniques you can use to wash your car (whether heavy, medium, or light dirt) when in the winter months, no access to a hose, or live in an apartment building. The process is more time consuming than traditional washing and should be used as a great "second best option" scenario. Thx for watching!

How to Wash a $2 Million Ferrari: Prep + Polish (Part 1)
This is a 1967 275 GTB/4. I absolutely love this special car! Based on emails and comments received during my last Ferrari restoration (288 GTO), everyone wanted to know the steps I take BEFORE I begin the compound/polish etc stage. What facts need to be understood prior to apply any product or machine... The information gathered before repairing the paint will dictate how you decide what products/abrasives (or not) to use to remove the minimal amount of surface (clear or single) to save the "working life" of the paint. Remember, pro-detailers get paid... not for how much they "remove", but for how much they "leave" intact. -L

How to Remove Water Spots and Calcium/Lime Deposits
This is a clients daily driver that was left in a parking garage in NYC. It's common for the lime/calcium deposits to fall from the ceiling and cause issues on the paint if left untreated for long periods of time. Hope this gives you and idea of what "type of chemical" can help remove or loosen the contaminants. (FYI: I used a directional microphone instead of my normal mic because I wanted to pic up the "texture sound" of the calcium.) Thx for watching! -L

Concours Secret Tricks: "At the show prep"
Here are a few tricks for prepping a car immediately BEFORE and DURING a concours or car show. (Assuming the paint resto has been done beforehand. Notice, I do not use any machines during the prep) The second half of the video discusses how to get the best pop from paint, wheels, and glass once you arrive at the show. Similar to "primping" a show-dog before they trot around the judges...(meaning the car looks great already...how can we squeeze the last bit beauty minutes before we are on stage) Hope this gives you some idea of how to stand out from the pack. (pun intended) --L

Trick to cleaning perforated leather car seats
This video is for a subscriber of my channel. He asked about cleaning perforated leather seats and how the approach might be different. Great Question! Be sure to apply Lather Interior Cleanser to to the BRUSH, and not spray directly cleaner directly on the perforations. Afterwards, quickly vacuum or turn on the ventilated seats (if equipped) -L

Rupes Bigfoot Polisher vs Griots DA Polisher
This is a quick and "broad" discussion about the evolution of polishing machines with a focus on the Griots DA and new Rupes Bigfoot. (there are many other polishers I've left out of this discussion for the time being) I think it important to understand the progression of paint restoration as it applies to the detailing community. It's very exciting to watch our industry grow rapidly and see the expansion of tools that combine the necessary power (in terms of correction) with fundamental simplicity (meaning anyone can use it safely). Can't wait to see whats next! -L

How to Detail a New Car: McLaren MP4-12C
One of the most common questions I receive is about new car deliveries.

New car polishing and paint sealant tips for protecting your investment. Thanks again for watching and email me if you have any questions: larry@ammonyc.com -L
