There are people who wash cars, and then there’s Larry Kosilla, who nerds out on the intricacies of detailing harder than anyone I’ve ever seen. Watching him comb through anything is interesting, especially if it’s a $500,000 Ford GT.
Here we have Kosilla visiting Barry Meguiar’s house, the very same Meguiar whose name is on thousands of car cleaning products on shelves across the country, to see how the guy’s personal staff detailer takes care of his brand new supercar.
The short answer is: “very thoroughly.” Meguiar’s guy Derek Bemiss goes to the length of first leaf-blowing and power-washing the ground upon which the GT will be cleaned before even starting on the car, to give you an idea of what we’re getting into.
There are some good cleaning tips in this video, like “don’t rub the paint too hard,” but mostly I just enjoyed the clips comparing and contrasting the new and old (mid-2000s, not 1960s) Ford GTs. The detail close-ups are cool, too.
Amazingly, it looks like Kosilla is going to stretch this cleaning session out to a multi-video series so if you want to get even deeper into the pores of this car you’re going to get the chance.
