Default recovering from stroke; need a GOOD detailer

Hi all,
I'm recovering from a stroke and the damn fatigue & poor balance prevents me from properly detailing my beautiful black '04 Z06. It needs a good wax & polish. Can anyone recommend a quality vette detailer?

JD, I'll be glad to come down there and do it for you, gratis. That is if you can wait until next Monday evening, and you have a garage. Not a professional by any means. But, if a good hand polish is all she needs, I'm pretty handy with a microfibre.
Just let me know, and we'll set up a time.

Brian does awesome work. I've seen his car, and the paint is as smooth as butter.

Default Thanks all

I had a bad couple of months, so I haven't been on the boards much. No, I have not had my baby shined yet. I need to get in touch with EVIL_C5....

unfortunately no garage, and my Z is my DD! The only thing that puts a smile on my face lately....

There are several people nowadays that will drive to your location to wash your car.

Glad you're ok and back to driving your vette!

Here's something important to share with everyone else:

3 WAYS TO IDENTIFY A STROKE

STR (acronym using the first three letters of the word 'stroke')

If someone falls down/loses balance/passes out - make them do these 3 things to make sure the individual did NOT have a stroke. Many times a stroke can be treated and the effects reversed if acted on immediately!

S - Ask the person to smile
T - Ask the person to talk
R - Ask the person to raise both arms

If they have trouble doing any of these, RUSH THEM TO THE HOSPITAL. Additionally, you can also ask them to stick their tongue out straight. If it ***** to the left or the right, it's also an indication that they've possibly had a stroke.

Remember these! You may be at your next BBQ saving a family member.
