  • Front Cover PerformanceVW June 2011.

    Finally got round to writing the Video and some photos of the Red Caddy Showvan.
    The initial detail took place just before Ultimate Dubs where the Caddy took an award but sadly the Caddy was wiped down after a long journey with quick detailer and a cloth and damaged the bonnet and wings badly. I was up at 4am enroute to the shoew after getting a call to say what had happened but by hand i couldnt rectify it so i asked for it back to redo the caddy again and some knowledge was passed over on how to keep the paintwork in pristine condition or as near as possible.

    The Caddy was originally done in Kore Dark which looked superb and wet but we decided to have some fun and mix it up a little so decided on a product that isnt out of everyones price range and went for a sealent.

    The Caddy has been sponsored by Shinearama in Altrincham in Manchester so all products can be directly purchased from them or ChemicalGuysuk for the ChemGuys products. Shinearama has a walk in policy which is cool.
    This was great fun as Shinearama had the spec of the Caddy and supplied the owner with the kit to do the caddy with so i just had a bundle of products from all manufacturers to work with , i think the results are great.

    The Video which shows before and after paintwork in video form HiDef and also walkround in full sunlight on location of the GAC Photoshoot an up and coming international company specialising in bespoke photoshoots for magazines and international media.
