Good morning everyone,

With our next SSMTHIS Thursday and a couple of places still available for our Cars by the Lake Roadshow on Sunday 2nd September, I would like to let you all know of a BRAND NEW PHEA Event for 2018.
Following an enjoyable Spring Detailing Day, our own Car Detailing wise man has invited to join his autumn meet.
And so LowiePete's Autumn Detailing Meet will take place on Saturday 22nd September.

I shall hand over to the man himself for Full Details smile

Hello Folks,

The 2nd of the 2018 Lowiepete Detailing Days is planned for Saturday 22nd September.
The meeting venue is: The Fighting Cocks PH in Lowestoft, NR33 0NA

The meeting time will be 09:30 for prompt before 10:00hrs departures. Don't be late!

The meet is now held in a local industrial unit. What this means is that we are no longer
weather dependent and I can increase the limit of attendees from 10 to at least 15.
If there are enough experienced detailers to support it, that limit could be extended
to 20. Please indicate this with (XP) as you register.

I'm hoping that the Detailing Studio almost next door to the unit we'll be working from
will be open. What this means is that alongside the basic (by hand) demos, there'll be
an opportunity to use machines also. Hopefully, we'll have two cars to work on, with
both being at different stages of preparation at the start. The focus will be on trying
to prepare for winter, but rather than focus upon certain potions, you'll be shown
some nifty techniques that will help you get the best performance possible.

We'll be providing hot drinks, but you will need to bring your own packed lunch. We'll not
be retiring to the local pub as hitherto. There is an option of a lunch delivery service but
this will need a minimum of 5 purchasers. If this interests you, please place (F) behind
your name.

The invitation to this meet is also to members of other Forums, so preference will be given
to those who register first, should the limits be reached. There will be a safety notice
issued closer to the time.

As ever I will be attempting to ensure that no-one goes away empty-handed, so I'm
hoping to assemble a decent goodie-bag for everyone to take home.

Hello Folks,

As ever, I'm slowly amassing some nice raffle prizes. These will include
a clay cloth, a top-of-the-range drying towel, some really nice buffing
towels and some concentrated tyre dressing. Everyone will be given a
small bottle of ONR (Optimum No Rinse) and there'll probably be other
goodies for free as well.

No-one ever goes away empty-handed from one of my meets and this
one will be no exception. With the Winter months hovering, the accent
will not only be on protection choices but on techniques to apply them
effectively.

Yeah, I know, everyone knows how to apply wax, don't they? Come
along and see if you experience a surprise or three. See you there?

Regards,
Steve

Safety Notice - PPE Requirements

Back in the day, the thought of wearing anything special for detailing was an
anathema, after all, the very best waxes were always best applied by hand,
literally! How the World has changed?

While the majority of this meet will be around benign potions and methods,
if we are to do more than just talk about what are essentially "professional"
practices, then we do need everyone to stay safe. By attending this event it
is incumbent upon you to not put yourself or anyone else at risk. You _will_
need to bring the following items with you, and you'll be required to wear
them when instructed, else stay well clear of that work area until that demo
is concluded.

Please bring...
  • protective eyewear
  • nitrile gloves (more than one pair)
  • a face mask to FFP3 standards (disposable is fine)
Also, please be aware that some cleaning potions would not qualify as your
favourite after-shave, so old clothing or even an apron to put over your knees
while we're cleaning wheels might be a good plan.

I do want everyone to enjoy their day. We're there to share experiences with
each other, not to test ambulance response times. Your collaboration is much
appreciated. Thanks.

Regards,
Steve

P.S. On the morning I'll be taking a straw poll on your attitude towards the
"reveal" - in other words, should the Q car only be revealed to its owner at
the day's end (circa 16:00hrs) or do we forego that pleasure, so he'll slowly
see the transformation happen?

Just a quick update:

As it's quite a job assembling goodie-bags for more than 10 people, with
the help of some generous suppliers, I run a free prize draw instead. The
star prize at this meet, courtesy of CarPro UK, will be worth the best part
of 40 quid! Other prizes, from the same source and from Serious Performance,
have a value of around a tenner each...

This means that I can once again promise that no-one will go home
empty-handed and you'll be carrying away something of value that you can
use. Much better than a bag of shampoo sachets, eh? My thanks go to these
two suppliers for their help and kindness.

Regards,
Steve
