Default Stopped to visit my Vette yesterday!!

Well, I decided to do a full new car prep on my new Z.....not chips or anything yet. I took it to a guy here in Marietta Ga. I don't know if I can post a link, but if you are in Georgia you need this
http://www.redsdetailco.com

I stopped by yesterday to visit, I really like that I can just drop by, and hang out for little while, not to long they are working. So my Zo6 will be done by Wendsday and here's a clip of my car during the process


Holy Cow is all I can say....... He does a new car prep package that places film in the high risk areas, does ceramic pro on the paint, wheels, calipers and glass.

I have to say, Red, a.k.a. Erin is wicked smart, and is involved in everything from product development to teaching other professionals how to do this right.

Some of the cars in his shop are astounding!!

I can't wait to get it, and if you want to do this sort of thing and live near Cobb County Georgia, you would be crazy to not go see him !!

Dang Bill, that looks amazing! I need to take mine to him before going to the Bash - it could use some detailing. Are you planing to drive yours up? We should caravan.

These guys look top notch. What did you spend for this service? I live in DFW and looking for someone here to do it. It would be helpful to know what you spent so I can compare pricing here locally.

If anyone can recommend a service in DFW, I'm all ears.

Fresh ceramic coatings look so good, almost liquid-like. I wish it stayed like that

If you live in the Atlanta Area, and are thinking of doing this, go see Reds. I am blown away by the results, but just looking at the other cars was amazing. He had 1941 Cadillac that was stunning!!

He has a video on his website of it, if you want to see something amazing.

I bet that is the same Caddy Fleetwood that was at the Cadillac Grand National in Tysonís Corner Va last summer. The color and the paint work were unreal. Just an absolutely classic stunning automobile. Back when Cadillac was unquestionably an American Standard for the World.

Looks killer.
I had the Cquartz Finest applied to my truck when I first got it as well. Still looks killer almost 2 years later. Remember to use RELOAD after washing the vehicle every once in a while. Helps maintain the Cquartz.
