    On days like this I really love my job. This Boxster came to visit me today, and I will admitt, it was a labor of love. I did the plastic bag test with the owner and he couldn't believe how rough the finish was. Most likely it was never clayed before. It looks like glass now and feels like silk.

    Sorry, I should of posted my signature. I own and operate Perfect Auto Finish in Roselle IL. (www.perfectautofinish.com) I hosted the detail seminar at Fox Valley Motors last month. Although I do not own a Ferrari, I have detailed many. When I have time I will post tips here when I can. You are all welcome to visit my web site and ask questions on car care whenever you like. Happy motoring. Gary www.perfectautofinish.com

    I just spent all day Satuday Polishing my Car with some Mequiars Show Car glaze. That stuff is absolutely incredible as far as putting an extreme shine on your car....(Uh Oh...just let my Secret out....) But,even after doing that,and driving up and down the Tollway on Sunday up to the LFSC Concours. I just remembered about the "Plastic Bag" test,(Dave actually reminded me) And,sure as Sh*t,it felt "Bumpy". You'd never know it by just looking at it. So,I'm going to do the Clay Bar,too.


    Yes,we'll bring my Wife's PT Cruiser over to a meeting sometime. She's actually getting "into" cars,now.(A good thing....a Very Good thing....:) )

    Not able to make Oak St. this year,though. It's my Daughters Birthday,and she's going to be 13,so.it's a Big one.....(my "Karma" is about to begin.....I'm scared....very scared......)
