    Traveling detailing

    Well we are going to our beach house this weekend in Destin, FL and I managed to schedule an exterior detail and swirl removal on a 2014 Spring Special Edition "Green Flash" SS Camaro. Pics to come. Traveling in my 5 series Bimmer and still have plenty of room... in the buckets and basket are:
    1 each grit guard
    Wash mit
    HD Speed
    Rupes 21
    Plenty of various pads
    Exterior microfiber towels
    CG plush smicrofiber silk edge towels
    JetSeal
    Paint prep
    Rubber prep
    CG VRP
    CG citrus wash
    Blower
    Drying towel
    Wheel cleaner
    Big/tar remover
    Iron remover
    Clay bar
    LED Work light and stand
    Latex gloves
    Extension chord
    Pad prep
    And a few other things

    Should be fun

    Nice. I need another light so I don`t have to keep taking this one apart.

    Buy it and you won`t regret it...the $42 (2000 lumens) is great but the $69 (2700 lumens) is even better! Her is what I did with mine to make it come apart easier: Dual purpose camera Tripod

    Re: Traveling detailing

    Look at what showed up this morning. Now I love my 2012 and typically hate the 2014-15 body style but this is kickin`....and yes that`s my Bimmer in the background dirty as hell from the trip down last night.

    Anyways on to the wash/decon to see how bad this puppy is or isn`t.

    Traveling detailing

    What is special about this edition:
    -Custom green color only for this spring edition by GM.
    -Painted to match good vent
    -Body kit
    -ZL1 spoiler
    -21" wheels

    The owner had some extras done as well.

    Last time I was down for a race with my Camaro, he actually let me install a tune for him...now to talk him into headers, cam, and much more lol!

    Sam`s right near you has it.
    Formerly the "Best Detailer", now just Super Wax Waster Man. Not necessarily tactful, but normally right. It`s good to be da King !!!

    Nice green. Don`t see too many green cars anymore. One of my favorite colors.

    Re: Traveling detailing

    A few last shots. The owner was ecstatic over how it turned out...

    I did take a break in between the swirls though to go get some fresh seafood while I`m in Florida.

    I`ll spare all the details since we all know what we`re doing here. But as mentioned HD Speed, Uro Fiber pads. Washed and stripped with CG Citrus wash, clayed, and sealed.
    And I couldn`t help myself but to touch up the engine bay just a little...on the house since he didn`t ask for it.
