1949 Cadillac in the house! Detail Classes at Autogeek! (http://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/sign-up-detailing-bootcamp-class-3-day-class/95469-1949-cadillac-house-detail-classes-autogeek.html)


This will be the car my class works on to learn how to do multiple step, show car detailing using the Flex 3401 and Wolfgang compounds, polishes and waxes.

You can see it's parked next to the 2007 SRT SuperBird which is also one of our training cars for this class.

This is a HUGE car to buff out!

The paint is completely swirled out plus it has hand sanding marks and random scratches all over the finish. This car is going to push my students to the limit!

The clouds were out when it arrived so no pictures to show the before condition yet but as normal, I will get them and post them.

Beautiful car! My step-dad is a huge Cadillac nut and loves to restore them. I've had my share of polishing chrome!

The chrome bumpers on this car have been either re-chromed or replaced and look show car quality.

The stainless steel trim is looking dull though so that's one of the things the class will be addressing.

I'll try to get some good picture today showing the sandnig marks and holograms in the paint.
