Over 15 years ago, a Bush Administration official contacted Renny Doyle about restoring the Boeing 707-120 also known as Special Air Mission (SAM) 970, the first jet powered Air Force One. The plane resides at the Seattle Museum of Flight.

Renny Doyle’s now famous Air Force One Detailing Team has been restoring and preserving this very special aircraft along with other historic planes at the museum for 15 years. In 2018, Chris Woolman of Octane Detailing was handpicked to be part of this elite team of detailers from across the country. All AFO team members own their own detailing business, pay their own expenses and donate their time and skills to this incredible project.


Octane Detailing is owned and operated by Chris Woolman, a certified and professionally trained automotive detailer and paint correction specialists.

Chris started detailing cars over 18 years ago. In 2014, he opened Octane Detailing to pursue a career he was passionate about. His personal love for cars and eye for precision is responsible for his attention to detail.


Chris received his detailing, paint correction, headlight repair, and ceramic coating certification from Renny Doyle of Detailing Success, also known as the “Detailer of Air Force One”.
Members of the Detailing Success Network have access to ongoing support and advice from other members of the Network, as well as expertise from senior members of the Detail Mafia.

  • Thank you to Chris Woolman and his amazing mobile detailing business, Octane Detailing. Chris is a class act and performed an amazing transformation to my Acura MDX. With 2 kids, I had many crumbs and ‘sticky’ substances from little hands and spills. I am amazed that my car looks brand new from the inside out. Never thought it would look this good again. Anyone in need of a detail, check him out. Thank you Chris!!!

  • Chris Woolman of Octane Detailing, restored the headlights on our 2004 Toyota Solara convertible from “obscure to clear”, making them look brand new! Chris did the work himself, explained his procedure and was meticulous. We have hired him to detail both of our cars on a quarterly basis. He is a perfectionist and worth every penny.

  • Chris detailed my Nissan Cube. It looked better than brand new when I got it back! It looked so good I banned all food from the car and anything to do with glitter. Seriously, he got the glitter out. Magic!

  • Chris detailed my MINI Paceman and it turned out spectacular! If you want a thorough clean and polish of your ride, Chris is your guy! Exceptional attention to all the little things you continue to notice for days and weeks after you get your car back!

  • Chris went way above what was expected and thought possible. He took a trashed out van that hauled around four boys through their childhood and made it look brand new! The results were incredible!

  • Chris is great my scratched jeep looks new again. The job he did was worth every penny and more. I am looking forward to having him keep up the wash and waxing in the future.

  • Chris just removed a set of scratches (looked like cat claw marks) on the trunk lid of my Cadillac. He did an excellent job treating the area and then finished it with a polish and protective wax. His work is meticulous and his perfectionist values mean that you’re going to get the best work done anywhere around So Cal. Paint still looks brand spankin’ new!!!

  • The head lights on my 2009 Acura TL were in sad shape due to being parked in the sun all day practically every day since I bought it. Were totally faded and cloudy looking and now look brand new! I was amazed at how Chris got those lights shining again…..clear as glass. He put a lot of hard work into the job (2 hours) and it certainly shows!

  • Chris did a full detail on my brand new 2016.5 Mazda CX-5. He also added a special protective paint coating. The car ended up looking shinier and better then when when it came from the dealership. I would recommend Octane Detailing to anyone.
