We finally had our detail day and it went very well, nice to put a face with a "screen" name, LOL! I got to try out 3 different machines and I know this, I've got a ways to go before I step up to a Flex or Makita, that's for sure! Those things correct so much faster and you've really gotta know what your doing, more than common sense is needed to work one properly and most importantly, safely!
We originally has 17 sign up and 10 ended up showing up, so not too bad for our first time out, I expect our next one to be even better and bigger, we learned alot from our initial event and will apply it to our next one, whenever that is.
We had a couple great sponsors too, one big and one small. Our big sponsor was Mothers, thanks Forrest for providing us with so many samples, looking forward to trying the synthetic wax, can't say I've tried Mother's out. Our other sponsor was Garry Dean and I went and checked out his website last night when I got home and was blown away! This guy is what our country is all about, the little guy with ambition who's making it happen everyday. His story and confidence is inspiring, I encourage you guys who haven't done so to go and check out his website and see what I'm talking about. This guy has put his neck out there and has both a shop and mobile unit AND has his own product line to his specs, awesome
I plan on adding some of his products to my arsenal in the spring for the 2013 season, along with some CC Blacklight, got to see that in action on my g/f's Mazda 6.........WOW!
Ofcoarse none of this would've been possible without the help of Ivan who was nice enough to provide his shop for us to use, big thanks there and lastly, the people who actually showed up to make this happen, everyone brought something to the table. We had one guy, David, drive 4 hrs from Iowa to make the day, commitment
So here's some of my pics:
A random CG's product used on this C-pillar, awesome!
LarryA working so fast that it blurred the pic!
A meeting of the minds....
This is my g/f's Mazda 6 and we ONR'd the car, clayed the car and used that new towel for claying, can't remember what polish I used on it but we used 2 different pads, one MF and one foam and Connor finshed with CG Blacklight. I removed it and WOOOOOW, what a finish I gave off!

I spry and Edsel!
I will try and get some pics outside sometime soon but the car wasn't in that bad of shape but it had some RIDs and minor swirls since it hadn't had a wheel on it since the fall of 2011.
Looking forward to seeing all the other pics too!
