Default Tech session: How to make tired paint look new?

Just wondering.... the paint on the Jetta is starting to look pritty sad... and that makes me sad

So, for those of us who would like to learn how to make our older paint look new again, will there be a tech session showing paint care and restoration?

Not a bad idea, but I don't know any real secrets to help out. Is there someone else out there that would like to volunteer to lead such a session? Otherwise, I'll see if my brother knows someone at the Ford dealership in detailing that might be able to help.

Come see me at the Rally VW table. I can give you tips on how to shine up old paint. I have a lot of experience in Paint and body work.

Hamsterdiesel and that wax she was showing off at last years fest was very impressive. Maybe you'll be lucky and she can demo it?

BUT BUT Fred the Hamster is needed by her husband....

I need the Hamster to get the T red ready... after all I have never missed a show & Shine yet..

Perhaps we can Negiotate.....
The Hamster's more than able assistant "Tomo The Great" will be in town also. We will also have a full compliment of Zaino products. I do know that the Hamster has packed her Zaino tee shirt.

Note to all this is a demonstration of a superior product for the protection of your TDis exterior finish. We do not intend to do a whole TDi restoration here. At the 2005 Impex fest Sootman did a complete finish job and his TDi looked really impressive. And at the last GTG at the House of 5 garages N1DAS had a "Dork" special on the hood and a Hamster Zaino job on the rest his Black Golf looked beautiful.

As the Hamster Husband says...

T Red will be the subject of my work this time around since my black Golf is sitting out this Fest...

I will be happy to discuss finishes, products, etc. with anyone who stops by...

...I'll be the lady in the Zaino shirt...

(The secret to a perfect finish is out...)
