FORT COLLINS, CO November 28, 2017 — Nicholas Vecchio, owner of Fort Collins’ Sticklers 4 Details Automobile Detailing has been awarded a Detailing Business, Paint Correction, Headlight Repair, and Ceramic Coatings Certification from The Detailer of Air Force One, Renny Doyle of Detailing Success. He also now holds a dual certification (CD SV) from the International Detailing Association (IDA).
Although Vecchio is already a veteran automotive detailer, technology drove him to take his business and his skills to a more advanced level. The highly intense but comprehensive 5-day Detailing Success accreditations are the only ones of their kind in the detail training industry, and they qualify Vecchio for a coveted spot on the 2018 Air Force One Detailing Team, which will be announced next spring.
Doyle is a nationally renowned Master Automotive and Aircraft Detailer & Trainer known for his 15-year restoration and preservation of the original presidential jet Air Force One on display at Seattle’s Museum of Flight. He also leads an exclusive detailing team to the Gordon McCall Motorworks Revival and The Quail at Monterey Car Week every year.
A Detailing Success certification takes detailing into advanced paint correction, a meticulous and precision-based process that lets Vecchio revitalize an aging or neglected vehicle’s cloudy, oxidized paint. Afterward, the shine is often more brilliant than it was when the vehicle was new. It also saves customers thousands of dollars in a respray (re-paint), which devalues the vehicle.
Furthermore, Doyle’s certification trained Vecchio in the use of European Steam Clean, which uses hot vapor and powerful extraction to professionally revive car interiors including fabrics, carpets, and hard plastics; and certified him in the application of long-lasting Ceramic Pro protective automotive coatings.
Over the next couple of years, Vecchio can also, if he chooses, work towards becoming a “made-man” of the infamous Detail Mafia, a senior-level project team of detailing mentors and leaders who cross state lines to work on community projects, often on a pro-bono basis. Some of those projects include cleaning and restoring emergency, fire, and police vehicles after hurricanes; restoring classic motorcycles, fire engines, aircraft, etc. for local museums; and cleaning vehicles for nationally-known automotive auctioneers like Mecum and Barrett Jackson.
Also, as a certified member (CD) of the IDA, Vecchio now holds an advanced Skills Validated (SV) certification with the organization. Certified IDA detailers are held to a higher quality standard, and the SV designation means Vecchio has passed challenging hands-on testing according to strict industry standards determined by leading industry professionals.
