“There are two components I look at: skills and personality. Mike definitely has the skill set, and he’s great to work with. He’s an extremely loyal guy,” Doyle said in the article. “We’re all businessmen, but it’s really a big detailing family in our professional industry group.”
Liebing’s specialty is paint correction. He worked on Air Force One’s win, fuselage and nose, and he cleaned its engines and polished its aluminum rims, reported the article.
His business, Praxis, was also chosen to detail a fleet of cars by the Disiere Collection in Fort Worth, Texas. The team wears gloves while they work to keep oils and salts from transferring from their skin to the vehicle’s surface, noted the article.
