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!!!

Wisconsin Drive April 16th

    

We will be joining forces with the Milwaukee MINIs and other area clubs for a fun group drive on some twisty Wisconsin back roads.  We have moved our traditional early spring drive date back a little bit to Saturday April 16th to hopefully catch a bit of warmer weather.

WRAPUP:  Rain, cold, drizzle, and even a bit of snow..  Not the best of conditions, but we still attracted 25 or so MINIs (and one Honda Del Sol)  from the Chicagoland and Milwaukee areas to cruise some fun back roads.  The wet conditions made the turns a bit more challenging, and a good time was had by all.   We then stopped off for a late lunch at the Bristol 45 Diner.  Huge thanks again to the Milwaukee MINIs for joining us, Pat for the route planning, Cherissa for the lunch coordination, and the Bristol 45 Diner for being able to accommodate our crowd.
