The typical dealership should have a sign out front "Please do not feed the mechanics".
Good luck finding those back-up lenses and trim bits.
There's only two ways that dealers are going to keep top talent: 1) pay them a lot more, or 2) do like the tech companies do--make the work FUN whenever possible. If you pay low wages for drudge work, you have the perfect combination for continued failure.
There are countless examples of modern cars that have had nothing more than washings and a wax job 2X a year, with paint that still looks as good as new. These "paint protectors" are the answer to a problem that for most even the casually attentive people, doesn't exist. Short answer? In my opinion, expensive overkill.
Something very sad about making a utilitarian vehicle "precious".
