very true...I would think your correct about your assumption with a slight decrease in business after OC application factors in...LOL...

Thanks. Always been a huge fan of BBS CH-R spoke designed. Interestingly enough never liked BBS CH.

A detailer will fix and repair any paint chips before applying OC?

From my experience, detailers usually don't repair paint chips. They'll correct swirl marks and other issues with clear coat, but will not fix actual paint.
