About Boyd Coddington’s Detail Garage
Boyd Coddington Detail Garage is an evolution of professional car care products. I originally managed and helped my dad with the launch of the popular car care product line, Boyds Ultra Violet in 1995. Boyd’s Ultra Violet was my first venture into manufacturing high-end car care products. After twenty five years in the hot rod, custom wheels and car care industry and a lifetime as a car enthusiast and hot rodder, my goal was to develop a line of high end car care products that would fit the needs of real detailers, both professionals and hobbyists. A lot has changed since the Boyd’s Ultra Violet launched, boasting the bright purple labels. Today, auto care has to keep progressing to keep up with changes in auto paints and other materials, changes in industry regulations, and innovations in the science of car care.
All of Boyds Detail Garage products are made in the USA using the latest innovations in surface care from around the world. We have thousands of hours in R&D and we tested our products in the hands of some of the most respected professional detailers in the world. These are same professional detailers that my father and I trusted for years to detail the winning Boyd Coddington Built™ hot rods. We gathered their feedback, reanalyzed and would go back to the drawing board if needed. We did so until those detailers felt confident enough to replace their current products with the Boyd Coddington product. Boyd Coddington Detail Garage Products will continue to represent the high standard in attention to detail, quality, and craftsmanship.
