As self-confessed motoring fanatics here at SXdrv, we subscribe to more motoring channels on YouTube than you can imagine, literally hundreds of them. Some are better than others, some are for pure entertainment value and others are to watch and learn. Then there are the detailers we follow. We watch these channels to learn, but mainly to relax. Yup, there’s just something cool about watching a professional detailer use all his tricks and special products to revive an old car. Barnfind cars that have been standing for years are the ones that can keep us glued to the screen for an hour or more. The process of an in-depth detailing job can be quite a cathartic experience. One of our favourite detailing channels is that of AMMO NYC run by Lawrence Paul Kosilla III, or Larry to his followers, all 2.22 million of them. Larry is at the absolute top of his game, evident by his range of bespoke cleaning products that have been tailored to be among the best in the world. A basic detail job by an expert of Larry’s level will easily cost upwards of $2,500, and when there are serious issues in the paint, it can cost a whole lot more because as the saying goes, time is money, and fixing bad paint and leather properly is a time-consuming process. When you watch the channel, you’ll notice that Larry is often commissioned to sort out some of the best supercars and hypercars in America. His scope of work includes all manner of Lamborghinis, Porsches, priceless classics and even rare concept cars like the Rimac Concept 1, a $1,600,000 slice of awesomeness. You don’t get to work on cars like this if you’re not regarded as being an industry-leading professional.
Take a look at the YouTube video that details (ha ha ha) what the paintwork of a modern Ferrari Supercar looks like from the factory, and the massive effort needed to get it to the level of awesome you'd expect when you're forking out more money for a car than most people earn in a lifetime: $500,000 Ferrari 296 Worst Paint Ever?
