    1955 Chevrolet Bel-Air -Hard Top-

    First time doing this one. Customer wanted done for this weekend Good Guys Car Show here in Colorado. (Finished this car last Monday)

    The process was my typical standard procedure.
    The customer had it hand-washed by the time I've got there.

    -Zaino Claybar
    -Meguiars Ultimate Compound for general buffing
    -Meguiars 105 Ultra Cut for random deeper scratches
    -Blackfire Wet Diamond Paint Sealant
    -Flex XC 3401 DA Buffer
    -PC7424 RO for Sealant application
    -Lake Country Hydro-Tech Tangerine Ultra Polishing Foam and Cyan Advanced Cutting Foam Pads (6.5")
    -Lake Country Gray Low Profile Finishing 5.5 inch Foam Pad
    -FK425 on windows
    -Wheels hand polished with Medallion High Gloss Metal Polish (uncoated aluminum)

    I'm trying!

    Seriously. It hasn't been easy.
    I still have some exclusive customers that will be hard to say no to.
    I've been sooo busy lately, it's not funny.
    I need some time for myself and this is the busiest detailing season, and everybody wants their car done.
    I'm already booked a month in advance.
    I've told people that this is going to be my last year. I know a couple of good detailer guys I would want to divert my business to, but it will be up to my customers to decide.
    I still will retain this customer (Bel-Air/Corvette guy) I doubt he will let anybody else touch his cars. He's a good customer and I love working on his cars...

    Another winner! You do amazing work and on some of the most beautiful cars.

    There's going to be some very upset car owners when you do decide to stop doing your magic.

    Thanks!
    I feel the same way. I'm trying to do what I can this year while I spread the word I won't be doing this much longer. At least not as much as I used to.

    That said, this weekend has been crazy busy. Those are my days off from my regular job, but it's also summer time and car show season.
    I can always use the extra cash, but I need to enjoy myself as well.
