    Default Detailing Day

    As mentioned in the "results of my detail" thread, Steve has offered to do a demo day for a group of us at his premises next to Leeds/bradford airport. The day would consist of using a members car (chosen at random) where Steve would run through the correct way to Detail your car in both preperation for shows and regular care. Depending on how many members want it, what they specifically want to see will determine what the small cost will be, but as a guide, my detail cost £40 and we spent over 6 hours on it so the demo day will be peanuts.

    What Steve suggested was a run through of how to pretreat the car for washing, Washing, using snow foam and the two bucket method, drying, minor defect removal using a PC, Correct Application of products, such as Spray wax, #21, final stage wax etc, basically a begineers guide to the proffessional detail. Steve will happily stop at any stage and answer questions but the session can be followed by a question session. I'll put my hand on my heart when i say that you will come away learning a load of stuff that will reduce or prevent future swirls or defects in your paint.

    Add your name to the list, whether you would like your car as the demo (may have a slightly higher cost as its only fair) and anything specific you want to learn.
    I think capping it at 10 people seems about right so first come first served.
