Hi Everyone ..I'm Steve the owner of Poorboy's World and Poorboy's World Forum. I am an avid lover of cars and making them shiny. I'm located in New York and am proud to bring everyone a place to learn and share your knowledge of my products. I've been taking care of cars since the early 1960's and hope I can share some of my experiences and knowledge as well as learn from some new information too. Learning is a never ending cycle and there is no one who knows everything about detailing. Let's all enjoy ourselves. Remember my signature ..life is short..do it while you can :D

Hello

Hello Steve and congratulations on finally becoming motivated enough to create a board that is specifically dedicated to "Poorboys" products. I'm a full time self employed Fleet Washer & Detailer in SoCal, and have 2 fixed locations where we do this work 4 to 6 days per week. After years of buying different products I finally settled on Poorboys products (about 2 years now) as my overall choice over all other products, and as a commercial guy it's made it alot more convenient to use one companies product. Good Luck with the new board!!!

Hey all,
I'm Rob. I am one of Steve's distributors and a detailing fanatic and reformed postwhore (can I say that?). Anyways, nice to have a cozy little board dedicated to the good stuff. I digress, I have a chemistry degree and love the "Mythbuster" approach to detailing questions so bring it on! Most of all I love the awesome tips I pick up from you all so keep 'em coming. :wink:

Intro

Hello Everyone,

My name is Leon and love the poorboys product line. I purchased a new '05 F-150 last year and I enjoy making sure it's the cleanest one in my area (Greenbelt, MD). I'll be popping in from time to time in order to gather tips and trade secrets from some of the pros. So many products, so few cars! :D

My name is Dan. I have been detailing cars for the last 15 years mostly body shop and used car. I also wholesale used cars so I have done my share of wet sanding and hard rubbing.I have done everything from high end cars to low end used cars. The one thing I have learned is that you can learn something new everyday.

P.S. I have the same name on DC

Great to have you here Dan..maybe with your experience you can write about using a rotary after wet sanding as well as some info on other topics of the process of detailing :wink:

Greeting from Chicagoland

My name is Jason Harrell and I am the proud owner of upstart Xquizit Car Care. I will soon be running a mobile detail business. I have recently purchased a slew of Poorboy products and so far they have met my expectations and lived up to the positive reviews I've read.

I look forward to purchasing and using more Poorboys and definately learning evening more about the business of car reconditioning.

Glad to be on "the board".

Hey Y'all!!!!

I'm a girl and I love detailing my cars. Is that weird? I hope not. I used to watch and then started helping my Dad detail his cars. Before I knew it he was showing me how to check the oil, tires, belts, plugs, etc. My fav thing though is detailing my car. I just bought a new Element SC and decided I needed to upgrade to better quality detailing products made for use in Georgia's hot, humid climate, and came across a website that carried Poorboy's stuff. I got the starter kit and was so impressed that I found the Poorboy's website and picked up some more stuff for myself and to give as gifts to relative's for Mother's Day and Father's Day. Thanks for the muscle car calendar!

I'm a lifelong wax fanatic. I think I have researched the market and Poorboy's wash, wax, Natty's white, Q-Detail +, bug remover, gloss are the best values on the market. I've been using them for years and tell anyone who wants to listen how great they work. I'm obsessive and no one ever touches my car but me, never been to a car wash and get lots of inquiries on what I use. I've been waxing cars all my life. My parents had the shiniest cars on the block. I'll post pics of my car after I wash it this weekend. I usually just keep most of what I know or tips to myself, really not many people care to hear about it. I hope my registration works. I've been signed up here a bunch of times and then not able to log in. Been reading for years on the forum..lol already know all of you. I call all the time and ask questions..goofball. Hope my registration works.

Hi, I'm Ray from the "burbs of Philly". I'm not a professional detailer, but do take a lot of pride in keeping my Tacoma looking good. I do Mobile Windshield Repair. And, although my truck has 220,000+ miles on it. I always get the "Wow, it looks like its brand new" from many of my customers. I met Steve at the Wheels Of Time hot Rod show about 5 years ago. And, I have heard all the sales pitches from the "wax/polish" stand ****. I was impressed and curious about Poor Boys. Steve tried to talk me out of the Natty's Red. Told me, "you won't like it, it is so shiney that every little blem on your truck will stand out." Well, he was partially right. The blems do stand out, but I LOVE it!!! The shine is amazing. And although like many of you. Always in search of the perfect product. Been thru Meguiars, Mothers, Wizard, and Zaino (which I loved, with the exception of it being a weekend killer to use) and many others. And, will admit. Poor Boys is awesome.. Keep up the great work, ****..
