Junkman2008 Posted August 16, 2009 Share Posted August 16, 2009 (edited) Adam's Polishes and The Junkman combined for yet another detailing clinic for the Fort Thomas Corvette Club. The club put on the car show to benefit the Wood Hudson Cancer Research Laboratory. It was held at the Hofbrauhaus at Newport on the Levee and the cold German beers were pouring by the barrel full. They even had the waitresses dressed up in authentic German attire. I have done a few clinics in the blazing sun and it has not bothered me at the slightest. This clinic was a totally different story. Once I got done with the demo, I darn near passed out from the heat and humidity! I actually had to sit down and sip water for 30 minutes before I could move again. Kentucky humidity is no joke folks! I'll know next time! The car that I picked out belonged to a gentleman who stated that he was a "Meguiar's man" and that was all he used. He said that no one had ever touched his car before and he was real skeptical about me getting next to it, much less with a polisher. After a few people kept asking him if he knew who I was, he decided to watch me real closely and let me touch it. One guy was blown away that he didn't know who the Junkman was. I thought that was kinda funny because I'm not Billy Mays, I'm Bill "D" Mays, the much lesser known pitch man! When I finished the trunk on his Corvette, he couldn't get his wallet out fast enough. He could care less about how much the stuff cost, he was like, "Where do I sign!" I think he has officially been converted over and Meguiar's won't be seeing any more of his dollars. Here are some pics from the event. Here's the finished trunk. Check out the fenders. You can still see the swirls in the paint by looking at the sunbeam. Next, look at the sunbeam on the trunk. Night and day. In this picture, I was showing the group the difference between just using SHR and how much deeper the color gets when you follow it with FMP. I really don't know what was going on here. I think I was doing my, "quickest PC in the west" pose! I do know that I was applying FMP because I'm doing it with one hand. That's the owner eying me in the red shirt. We had a good time razzing each other doing the clinic as he was former Army and me being a former Marine! Notice how much deeper the trunk is compared to the rest of the car. Here's his ride and some of the show's organizers dropping by to see the final outcome as I put on the final touches. Over all, it was a good time for all. There was a visit from the rain Gods and once it stopped, the rain on his trunk beaded up like pearls on a necklace. The rest of the car kinda just looked like it had been rained on. I pointed out the difference and he agreed. To bad I was too shot to take a picture. I was toast by then!
