Detail/Clearbra in or near Chicago

Hey guys. Just bought my car a month or so ago and have wanted to have it properly detailed then have Clearbra installed on the front bumper and hood. Well, 800 miles later, and I notice I have a tiny nick in my bumper and went mental. So, the question is, who is the go to guy in Chicago for detail and then Clearbra. I normally go to Simon's in Lincoln Park and they have done a decent job on my Tahoe, but I am looking for that "Holy Shit" detail as I told the dealer I would rather take the car dirty then have them detail it. She has had 2 baths and the leather conditioned with Dr. Beasley's so far. Then, who else for Clearbra in Chicago BESIDES IND. I already have a quote from them and know they do good work...

OK, let me know. Thanks!
Chris

Chris nice meeting you and it was a pleasure working on the M today. Let me know how it looks tomorrow after the clear bra is done and you pick it up from the shop. We'll definitely keep in touch for the future detailing as discussed. Thanks!

Rick at Body Skins is a very good clear bra installer. He is also mobile and very reasonable on his rates. I highly recommend him as I have seen his work in person (I am an installer as well). Very stand up guy too. His website is www.body-skins.com

Thanks Eric!
Ivan, the car looked amazing. I even had 2 people ask me who did the work while at VS today. Clearbra was a different story, definitely now what I was expecting but Matt and everyone at VS were great and are working with me to get the job done right.

We will definitely talk in the spring. Thanks again.
Chris

Thanks for the good words Chris and glad you liked it. I spoke with Matt today and heard the clear bra story . The guy who will do it again should do a great job as I know of him personally and I've seen him do great work.

In any case, definitely feel free to call or email me with any questions you may have regarding maintaining the M3 and we'll touch base for a whole car correction in a few months. Happy Holidays bud!
