    2014 Car Review - Cars detailed at Autogeek's Show Car Garage!

    2014 Car Review - Cars detailed at Autogeek's Show Car Garage!


    We had a LOT of really great cars get the show car treatment here at Autogeek in 2014. Here's a review in order with a picture of the car and a link to the full write-up.

    I'd like to thank everyone that helped with these detailing projects and hope everyone had just as much fun taking these diamonds in the rough and turning them into glistening gemstones.

    The link to the full write-up for each car is included and each write is like a how-to article filled with tips and techniques you can use on your own car in your own garage.

    Each write-up also showcases a wide variety of tools, pads and products. Most of these write-ups include well documented before, during and after pictures. Be sure to check them out and if you have any questions please feel free to post them to this thread or the the write-up thread for the car detailing write-up.

    Boat Detailing

    Here are two boat detailing projects we knocked out in 2014

    How to wetsand, cut and buff a gel-coat boat


    After shots
    This boat was really wiped out.... here's the after shots....












    Self-portrait reflection shot...








    Before shots
    Here's how she started out...










    I think this was the first machine wetsanding project in the U.S.A using the Rupes Duetto.


    Rupes for Machine Damp Sanding
    And to machine sand the black gel-coat hull, we used the Rupes 5" #3000 grit discs, 5" Rupes Interface Pads and the Rupes Duetto.





    g







    Rupes TA50 Mini Sander (used as a Mini Polisher)

    And the first use of the Rupes TA50 with microfiber discs to remove oxidation in the intricate areas of the boat script.
