FOLLOW ALONG WITH WHAT I GOT GOING ON
My friend Nick entrusted me with his amazing 1992 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione for the weekend. I gave it a maintenance wash using some Adam's, Lithium and Koch Chemie products. In addition to producing a video showcasing the wash process, I had Nick share some insights and information on this truly remarkable piece of automotive history. Be sure to catch both videos on my YouTube channel. You won't often see a car like this getting spoiled in the garage of a mild-mannered weekend warrior up here in Canada.

Exterior Detail of Audi RS5
I was equal part excited and equal part nervous to use the "Devil's Blood & Typhoon" ceramic duo by South Korean company Fireball. I have heard amazing things, and I think this coating system lived up to the hype. Of course, before I got to the coating, I needed to perform a comprehensive wash and prep of this Misano Red RS5. I corrected and polished this paint a few months ago, so it was decided I would perform a chemical decon and forego another lengthy and costly polish process. You will see some minor flaws but just remember, this is a Canadian daily driver.
Catch Basin Access
Here's a few photos that demonstrate how the catch basin grill can be accessed under the Swisstrax floor. I have filed off the connectors between two tiles of the Ribtrax and the solid Oak Vinyltrax. This allows for quick and easy access to the catch basin. I am quite fortunate how well all of this worked out.
The addition of the channel drain and catch basin enables me to conduct proper washes whenever I feel the need. I felt the need last weekend:
Lithium Ignite After Wash
My friends at Lithium sent me a little holiday care package including their new final spray called "Ignite". I used it on a recent project and really enjoyed it. I think this company is doing a wonderful job of bringing interesting and effective products to market and I have enjoyed the VIP touch they have given me. The Moscow Mule and copper cup was a nice touch!
YouTube Notification Issue
A YouTube viewer recently contacted me to alert me to an issue with the notification bell on my channel. This user was unable to click the little bell to set video notifications, but we figured out that simply unsubscribing"and then re-subscribing fixed this issue. Complicating the issue was a message that would appear staying "this action is turned off for content made for kids". Apparently, this is a glitch that other YouTube creators have reported. At any rate, simply following the easy steps outlined above is all that is necessary to set your RAD notifications!
Hanging with Papa Smurf & Mike
