My 2011 Camaro LS Videos of Detail

Question

Guest Gone & Forgotten

As she sits with Machine Super Wax (Sealant to you new people) curing on her now, I decided to edit some video I took. I figure Photos are cliche' and I'd like to post a video or two up. Here's the first video of the process - no actual polishing done in videos, just some show'n'tell and a few questions for the Adam's Community.

 

Please ignore my constant use of the word "anyway" - I guess I'm wasn't aware of my over use of the word.

 

I'll take another video when it's done and post it as well. Thanks for watching. *note - I have had a speech problem since I was 5, I'm 40 now. Please ignore my influences.

Finished it. Here's a video. Never mind the goofy-ness and Auto-Tuned voices - or the Chipmunk Wiz Khalifa - New iMac = new toy. ALERT = I may say a couple things that are a TINGE off colour.

AFTER: I have SINCE wiped the car down with DS and removed the smudging seen in these photos, along with the dust (blown off by air compressor).

Had some glass cleaner on the trunk lid under the Adam's Decal - oops. It's gone now... my bad.

Nice size garage Bob.

 

About the clay, it's not just the time, (even though the previous owner must have gone through lots of car washes!), but where the car lived during that time. Did it take a long train ride to get to the dealer, did it sit on the lot for a long time, did the owner work/live in a place with lots of industrial work, or maybe he parked under trees a lot?

Thanks and yeah, I know. Just amazes me that clay from a car that new could be so trashed. Makes me sad that people don't appreciate what they have. To me, that's taking things for granted and I just don't do that (except my big garage).

 

The garage is detached, about 250 feet from the house, so - I can do my thing without bothering the wife. It's only a 28x36. Wish it had higher ceilings - I'd be going for a lift.

Actually, the damage looted pretty bad! Did he use automatic car washes?? And yes, when you get a new car the contaminants can be that bad, from transport to sitting on the lot.

 

Wish I had a big garage. I have to detail outside as I have a 1 car garage.

Added 'finished' video, adding photos soon. Not perfect, but oh well. I'm sick of detailing cars. Dodge Ram Quad Cab 3 weeks ago, 96 Corvette CE last weekend, this thing this weekend... a black car is like 2 trucks when detailing.
