I'm in the ohare area, I do it myself, honestly with the right tools and products it's pretty much idiot proof

But if you are dead set on having someone else take care of it for you I hear these guys are good, it's a little bit of a drive from romeoville, but shouldn't be too bad

I do, but I'm pretty busy lately, im usually not one to turn down work, but if 02TransAm wants to take this one be my guest!

If you have any questions about washing/buffing feel free to ask!

Ideally I want to learn to do it myself. So if anyone can teach me to detail id gladly pay for that :)

Ask plenty of questions, get the right supply's, and don't be afraid to try something, once you get started it gets addicting! As of right now I have more into detailing supply's then I do my camaro haha

diamond auto detailing, dont take your car there as customer, I could get one of the detailers to do it on the side for a lot less, and I know which detailer to give a car to. The shop does almost every dealer in schaumburg. All motorwerk dealers and bmw dealer

I've been doing some detail work on the side. Live over in Glen Ellyn - not too far from you. Shoot me a PM and maybe we can figure something out.
