The Resort will have an exclusive parking area set aside for our needs in the front of the resort, many car clubs have utilized this area. Around 11:00 am we will have a Meguiar’s local representative, Ric Murphy provide a complete car detailing workshop. Topics such as Clay Bar usage on painted, chrome and glass surfaces, Spray Detailer, Car Wax, hand application and dual action polishers. The intention is to be shown how easy it will be to achieve great results and to remove any fear of working on a car’s painted surface by using correct procedures via hand application or via a dual action polisher. Ric will also need a volunteer or two that can provide a car with ‘black’ paint to demonstrate how to eliminate swirl marks and other procedures…
