Any good detailing videos?

im wanting to start getting into properly detailing my car but not really that sure how the best way is to do it.
iv seen BULLITT's video and its really good but wondering if theres any other good videos out there, most of the ones i can fine on youtube are like 2-3min long.

anybody know of any good decent length videos from start to finish of how to do a proper job?

cheers

best places to go are the detailing forums,I use cleanyourcar.co.uk,bit the bullet last year and splashed out on a DA machine and some product,well suddenly spent 250 and did a mad session before the NEC,found a mix of watching,reading and doing was the best way to learn,but lots of my car needs spraying so I could practice without fear

head over to detailing world many many write up's and videos

be warned though you will eventually have more money in detailing products than the value of your car

I was advised when starting out with a DA polisher to go and get a bonnet from a scrap yard to practice on. That way you can get used to how much pressure to apply and don't mess up your paintwork

Your doing well if you can damage your paintwork with a da

after trying this out with a rotary it's safe to say you would have to be a total moron to burn through your paint, with some seriously aggresive pad/ polish combo
