RE: CAPE TOWN Detailing Day...
Weather in Cape Town a bit overcast today (24 March 2010)...

I was actually at Naieem's place “Auto B” on Sunday ... he wasn't there... met his brother Ridwan though...
… he said you guys were coming down to CPT and I should pop around for more detailing info from the pro’s...

Pity I’m at work … woulda been cool to learn more first hand …

Hopefully the next "Detailing Day" in CPT ...

RE: CAPE TOWN Detailing Day...
Hi meguiarver
Yebo! I think that would be me...
I chatted to Ridwan H from Auto B on Sunday 21 March 2010.
Mentioned the forum to him...

I'm actually spreading the word to all that would listen ...
I don't want to be the only confused caapie here! Hehe!

On a CPT "Detailing Day" topic ... I actually went around to KMW 1st BDay Bash today!
Naush & Moe (CG) would have been there for product info/demo's, but had to go back to JHB!
I found out that the owner's mother also works for the same company as I do...
So had my vehicle washed there in show of support ...
And I won a Meguiar's Goodie Bag!!!!

Meguiar's Bucket with Gamma (G2) Seal
Meguiar's 2010 Calendar
Meguiar's Hot Sine Tire Coating
Meguiar's Applicator Pad
Meguiar's ScratchX 2.0
Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Wax
Meguiar's Hot Rims All Wheel Cleaner
Meguiar's Quik Interior Mist & Wipe Detailer

So spent a few cents ... Got a few Rands back! Haha!!!

By the way... Did you see the Meguiar's 2010 Calendar?
Are they real?
My bro (Graphic Designer) is convinced they airbrushed!!!

Strange that you mention that...Was considering putting one together for next year with photo's from the Show n Shine section. Only snag is the lack of content aside from myself and one or 2 other guys Hammerhead

RE: CAPE TOWN Detailing Day...
I'm pretty sure now that there is more incentive, the guru's here will be enticed a bit more???
Pretty sure there's 12 expert detailers on waxon ...
A Waxon Calendar ... Lekker!!!
Was looking through the Meguiar's Calendar ... Those are all "studio type" photo's ... With the staged lighting etc... Reflections are out of this world!!! With the paintwork reflecting different shades here and there ...

also, u guys going to the Castrol Xtreme Auto Show? sounds like it's going to be good this year???
...Wish we had more auto shows down here in CPT ...

... Awesome meguiarver ... can't wait for the details and photo's ... looking forward to it ....

RE: CAPE TOWN Detailing Day...
Are we still gonna have the detail day. Maybe a good start would be to determine how many CT guys are actually active?

RE: CAPE TOWN Detailing Day...
Hi meguiarver

CPT detailing day will be awesome!
Just say when? There are a few of us in CPT so hopefully it will happen this time round...

Think an "agenda" probably needs to be setup for the day (as recommended by the JHB detail day feedback)

How to do everything properly?(everything or probably from a list like below)
Practical Hands-on training ...

wheel cleaning
Washing (2 bucket method) - grit guard?
Drying (waffle weave/drying towels)
Claying (lubricant to use)
washing & drying (again?)
swirl removal (hand/machine)
DA or Rotary (machine differences/benefits)
polishing (hand & machine) product choices
Pad choices? (What pad to be used per purpose?)
cutting/polishing/buffing/finishing(products/pads)
sealants (benefits/application/removal)
waxing (benefits/application/removal)
Window cleaning
Rubber/Vinyl/plastic
Tyres

Location?
Date?
Time?
Agenda?
RSVP?
What does attendees bring with? (NB!!! Bring Camera's)

So, put my name down ... I will attend ...

RE: CAPE TOWN Detailing Day...
Uhm ya dude LOL.

I guess for those of us in the business its pretty simple and will be more beneficial for "personal" detailers. Throw a few ideas down and we can create something.

I do have most of the equipment i.e DA and rotary plus alot of products and whatever will be needed. I am however currently low on MF and WW drying magnets.

We could even do test panels on a bonnet DA vs Rotary or compare sealants etc?
