Detailing Meet - Saturday June 29th, 2013

Hi all,

Caddyshack has arranged the use of a large shop for us to use for the detailing day we had discussed over the last few months. Details as follows...

Location: 336 Courtland Ave. Vaughan, Ont

Date: Saturday June 29, 2013

Time: 8am-4pm


The plan will be for those of us with some experience in detailing to help others learn to do more of this on their own as well as just give us all a chance to hang out and gab about our cars! Some can do a coffee run in the am and I am sure there is something nearby for lunch or we can just order pizza in.

For those with equipment, please bring it along for others to share. We do need to know in advance how many are coming and what equipment, if any, you plan to bring. Please reply in this thread if you are attending and what you plan to bring in the same format as I will do below.

Once we have a list of equipment and the numbers coming, I will post more info on remaining supplies needed. I would recommend two options...if you want to get into this for sure, I can provide a list of materials needed and you can order online beforehand (eshine.ca is in Port Colbourne and has great prices and selection) or if you want to just try it out first, I don't mind folks using my supplies and paying me for them. I would imagine a full detail would cost around $30-$40 in materials. There may be others supplying equipment that would do the same.

If time permits, maybe we get get a short cruise in afterwards!


1. mike519 - Porter Cable DA polisher, pads, compounds and polish, micro fibre towels, brushes, pressure washer and foam cannon, etc
2. inTgr8r (observe only)
3. Punko (observe only)
4. Caddyshack
5. VinnieAces (if he wakes up)
6. mpower1226 - flex and pc polishers, pads, mf towels, wax buffer, brushes, etc
7. searchdev - polisher, brushes, towels, etc
8. MZHammer
9. Mirko (maybe)
10.

I'm in. Have some equipment; polisher, towels, wheel brushes etc.

Just received my AMMO order today and have an order coming tomorrow from eShine.

Happy to do a detail on my ///M but also happy to help others that need it more. I know space is limited.

Mike, please add me to the list. I don't have any equipment, so I am hoping to learn from the experience, regarding which products and techniques to use.

I have one yellow and one orange LC pad (plus white and black). Orange and Yellow can be used for either swirl removal or polishing so count them as an extra.


*** For those that have not done a detail in a couple of years at the latest, I would HIGHLY recommend you pick up some clay and clay lubricant. You can order Riccardo from eshine or you can get Mequirs at Canadian Tire, though I have not used their's. I have a pad for my polisher that does the same thing but its more money and I only have one of them.

Looks like eshine is having an open house next saturday including 10% off. These guys already have the best prices around so with 10% off, its worth the trip plus looks like some sort of car show at the same time...free food/drinks as well. As I need a couple of things, I am going to head down to Port Colbourne. Anyone want to join for a little cruise? Meet up outside Hamilton somewhere.
