Spring Detail Day, April 15th in Parker
« on: February 27, 2006, 05:30:07 AM »
I have requested Tax day off, since it is also my mother's birthday ;), and I am planning on having a detail day at my new place on Saturday April 15th.  Plan on an early start so we can be done late afternoon so I can then spend time with family to celebrate my mother's birthday.

I was thinking about a start time of 830am or 9am at the latest, I am assuming there will be quite a few of us, so I want to get through as many cars as possible.  I have a 3 car garage with plenty of room for all 3 bays to be used at one time.  We can rotate cars though for waxing, and have cars outside for interior cleaning.  We cand then break for lunch, etc.  We can BBQ or what ever, but it will be a bring your own food for the grill type of thing, or we can chip in for stuff for the grill and get fresh stuff, what ever works.

Things to bring......

Towels
wax
clay
detail spray
cleaners
buff pads
porter cable random orbit buffers, or other buffers you might have.
car vacs
windex
paper towels
extension cords for power in the street

A lot of the tings can be bought at www.detailersparadise.com  They will help guide you as to what would be best for a good spring cleaning and polish :)

I will have my porter cable available for people to use, but have only a few buffing pads left and I have 3 cars of my own to do....so, if you don't have a buffer, you can just get the pads and use my buffer.  We can use the hose at my house for washing, as there are no car washes right near the house, but there are some within a few miles if you want to go that route.

here is a sign up so we can anticipate who will be attending so we can plan a garage bay rotation...some people take longer to buff out a car than others, so we want to give everyone a chance to get their car in.

1. 03Indigo--Jon--------------------Burgers
2. DenverPat--Pat
3. Gragravar--Andrew #1 ;)
4. Aowhaus--Alan #1----------------Ribs
5. 34k--Andrew #2
6. Dubitup--Alex
7. StarlightB5--Dave
8. Colorado_Baja--Greg
9. Turbodub--Al
10. Eric18T--Eric--pending
11. Jdawg--Jason


If weather is bad that day, we will not do it, but hopefully things will hold out for us.  Any suggestions or things you have to offer for the group would be great, just post them up.  I will give directions via PM's for those wanting to attend.

Jon :D

I'll be there!  Thanks for hosting this, Jon.
Call me today when you can.  I'm surprised you're not asleep yet.

I'm in!

I also suggest bringing some extension cords, as some of us could buff and vacuum on the driveway.

Jon, is there a self-serve car wash nearby?
or could we wash on the road in front of your house (I assume we will use your driveway for detailing)?

Alan, there is a self serve car wash, but it is a bit away from here, so you can either go there, I will have directions here for those interested in going there, or you can use the hose at my house....should be warm enough.

the list has been updated....and Alan, thanks for remembering extension cords, that will be a big help.

For those coming down, here is an initial taste of where I am heading with the garage.  I hope to have it painted and the cabinets either stained or painted by April 15th.  But you get the idea.  There is plenty of room for some really good detailing.....so we should be able to get a lot of cars done.

So what did you get for the mini? or did I miss that thread?

The bench sounds cool! I have a number of fab projects planed for this year as well.

Greg, i have a set of blue OEM sport seats, the tan ones were the original OEM ones that match the interior...they are not the sport seats.  I have had the sport seats about 18 months now.

Jay, you will be missed!!!
