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

Here's a detail I did for a customer:

After:




This headlight cover is off of my car and shows the different wet sanding stages:












These pics are from another customer, although his paint was well-maintained:

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.
