New Detailed Image Products!

We have been busy this past month here at Detailed Image, to the tune of 38 new products!

We are excited to have added 3M to our product line and you can find some of the products we picked up below:

3M Automotive Performance Masking Tape – This tape will allow you to properly protect paint, trim, emblems, lights, adjacent panels and more when using a buffer. It will instantly stick on the surface and release without any residue left behind!

3M Glass Cleaner – This is an easy-to-use, quick acting, non-streaking aerosol glass cleaner! It removes surface contamination with ease and doesn’t leave behind any streaks!

For a complete listing of the 3M products we picked up visit the 3M product page!

Meguiar’s Foam Finishing Disc’s – These ultra fine sanding pads are very user friendly as they help quickly remove blemishes with little effort and bare minimal haze, if any at all. When Meguiar’s visited us last month they demoed these disc’s and they blew us away.  If you have deep imperfections that you want to remove with ease, then these disc’s are the product you are looking for!

Sonax Perfect Finish – This outstanding polish was designed to finish down your paint, removing haze and leaving behind an ultra smooth finish at the microscopic level. You can use this product after more aggressive polishing to help remove any surface haze, light imperfections, etc. You can even use Perfect Finish as a great one step polish! It will provide enough correction to remove light to medium imperfections, a level of finish that puts it in elite company, and doing all of this in an amazing amount of time.

DI Accessories Foam Lance – This Foam Lance will allow you to spray a layer of foamy shampoo on your vehicle’s exterior when attached to your pressure washer! Just pour any shampoo in the reservoir, connect to a pressure washer and start spraying foam on the exterior. The light and fluffy shampoo mix will produce a thick coating of foam that stays on the exterior and doesn’t run off!

Some of the new features of the new site are:

New Design: With new elements of modern web design and familiar navigation keys from the old site (navigation on the left, search box up top, My Account and Cart information in the header) we hope to have achieved a balance that everyone can enjoy!

One Site – All of Your Devices: We utilized a fairly new web design technique called responsive web design to ensure that the new Detailed Image works great on your large monitor, your laptop, your tablet, your phone, and any other device you use.

Search Engines: Now when you search the Store, Detailing Guide, or Ask-A-Pro Blog, you will be able to use a lightning quick search engine that includes helpful auto-complete suggestions! We hope that this feature will allow you to find exactly what you are looking for much quicker.

New Product Photos: No more grey background! We incorporated brand new photos for each of our 800+ products with a crisp and clean white background!

Product Labels and Downloads: Many products now have a “From The Label” section that includes information and instructions right from the label. Now you do not need to have the product in front of you to see exactly what is on the label! We also have added a “Product Downloads” section where you can download instruction manuals for tools like buffers, vacuums, and flashlights!

Verified Product Reviews: We have added a “DI Verified Purchase” badge to any review where we can verify that the reviewer purchased the product being reviewed directly from Detailed Image!

Speed improvements: We’ve optimized the new DI to be blazing fast no matter what device you’re using!

A more streamlined checkout process: We’ve redesigned our checkout process to make it simpler and faster to checkout without missing any critical information about your order!

We added a new Free Stuff category with more free packages with certain minimum spends!

No more weight limit – How is that for music to your ears? Now, instead of forcing you to place multiple orders when you have more than 60 lbs in products you would like to order, we will break it up for you! Our system now intelligently splits your order up into multiple boxes automatically. Check out with as many products as you like in one single order and our site will take care of the rest!

Check out the new design and see a complete list of new features and changes in our recent blog post, “Welcome To The New Detailed Image!“.

    I have a customer that has 2 Older BMW (1960’s) One is Un-restored has original paint, but some parts have been repainted (hood and trunk lid) The car is in very good shape, no rust or dings. The customer wants it prepared for Contours. I really don’t want to be too aggressive with polishing. What would you suggest in how to handle the exterior paint?
