About Wash n Gloss

History, and about us


British Army precision-driven into car detailing

Wash n Gloss was founded by Danny Lateu, the owner, in early 2017 after a short-term working as an LGV Driving instructor and HGV driver before a complete and exemplary 23-year career in the Army with The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment.

Being a petrol-head from a young age and having a passion for anything automotive, Danny put his management skills and professionalism to use building Wash n Gloss into a well-known business.

Moving forward to 2021, we now have 2 mobile vans and The Glossed Studio in Sidlesham, just south of Chichester.  A fully equipped vehicle detailing studio. With thousands of valets completed and a hugely successful business, we can offer a full range of mobile valeting services, unit-based detailing, paint correction and machine polish, and the latest ceramic coatings technology.

We are closely affiliated with Harwoods Jaguar and Aston Martin. Undoubtedly, the most popular car through the studio doors is the Aston Martin DB11. We have also been assisting the local Mercedes-Benz dealership in preparing their sales cars.
