BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — In a special, two-part exclusive podcast, Professional Carwashing & Detailing Assistant Editor Meagan Kusek speaks with Chris Walters, director of marketing for Jay Leno’s Garage Advanced Vehicle Care (JLG AVC) and a detailer for Jay Leno’s Garage.
In the first part of this podcast, Walters discusses his entry into detailing and how it is to work at Jay Leno’s Garage.
“Actually getting into the science behind [detailing] and how to actually formulate products … it’s cool to see how different things can tweak or make a product do different things or act a different way,” Walters says. “That and then applying [those techniques and products] and actually seeing [them] work is … what really sprung me into the market here.”
Of working at Jay Leno’s Garage, Walters says, “It’s a little bit surreal. You walk in, and just the sheer scale of it is pretty interesting. … With Jay, you’ve got a little bit of everything. It’s a really eclectic mix from a lot of different time periods, from a lot of different manufacturers. I’d have to say the most interesting thing is just being exposed to all those different variations of automobile and the history of the automobile.”
Make sure to listen to the entire podcast to learn more about how Walters got started detailing for Jay Leno and what it’s like to work for him. And, stay tuned for the second part of this podcast, which will discuss some new products from JLG AVC and some of Walters’ detailing tips.
