Detailing Seminar June 25th

WRAPUP: A beautiful day brought out about a dozen people or the Seminar.  We learned that diferent types of scratches required different techniques, and to use the technique that causes the least amount of wear on the clear coat to get the job done.  We are able to practice using claybar and hand polishes, and also use an orbital polisher to take deeper scratches out of a practice hood.  Afterwards we were treated to burgers and brats and we were even given a goody bag with some sample products.

Huge thanks to Jim and his crew at Dr. Beasley’s for spending the session demonstrating techniques and answering all our questions, and to Greg and his Smartbox crew for hosting the event and providing and cooking up all the great food for us!!!

AHCA Spring Gymkhana

The Chicagoland Austin Healey and MG clubs are having a little Gymkhana/Autocross event this Sunday Jun 12th in Warrenville, and have extended and invitation for Chicago MINI Motoring Club members to attend.  This will likely be a very tight and twisty course that will be challenging for our “large” MINIs to run,  but it should be a bunch of fun.

WRAPUP:   Perfect weather, and a fun crowd of really cool cars.  Jim M. was fast car of the day in his M Coupe, and Steve was first place (and only) MINI 😉
