    Trail Blazer: Surf City, Duragloss, Langka, Mystery Sealant & More

    I did this vehicle last about 7 weeks ago. The owner had a little collision with a flying piece of cement and he had some dents worked out.. There were some gouges that were still left in the passenger side. Aparently this softball sized piece of cement came flying at him while on the freeway, hit his windshield and rolled down the passenger side.

    He called and asked if there was anything I could do after the dents were pulled. I told him I could minimize them and should be able to make it unnoticeable from 4-5 feet away (langka) – so he hired me.

    I put the last coat of touch up paint the night before so it could dry by morning time.

    We planned on winterizing his vehicle in Mid November but moved up his schedule a bit. I am sure I’ll see this vehicle once more before winter really sets in.

    The Mystery Sealan is compliments of Al.. thanks again Bro I really liked this stuff, no frill, no fruity scent just some goood ole' chemicals!!!

    Surf City stuff was a pleasure as usual.. I'll be doing a review or two.

    Ok, heres the nect day after the sealant cured and after the 476 had been removed with a spray of OCW on each panel

    I also ended upo using DG tire dressing on the wheels on top of the SC since this customer likes a semi gloss and not matte

    Thanks for looking

    Very nice job on those corrections. I have Langka and I keep forgetting to use it. Where are you in the Detroit area? I'm probably your closest AG member.
