FOLLOW ALONG WITH WHAT I GOT GOING ON
I have been in search of an updated logo for a while. I worked with a few designers on Fiverr, but I wasn't satisfied. So, I designed my own. Here it is:
Here are a couple of animations featuring the new logo:
My July dance card is filling up fast. I have three projects lined up involving the cars of others and one project involving my own SQ5. They all promise to be a lot of fun.
Open invitation to local R8 owners
I have never discriminated when it comes to the makes or models of cars I have detailed. I have attacked 15-year-old Toyota Corolla's with Cheerios stuffed in every fold of the back seat and I have slogged away in minivans covered with dog hair. You never heard me complain. But, now I want to treat myself. If you, or someone you know, has an Audi R8, let it be known I am offering a free exterior wash and detail. I would need the car for a weekend during the summer.
New logo search
I am experimenting with a new logo, but I am not completely sold on it. It was a collaborative effort between me and a Belgian designer I hooked up with through Fiverr. Currently, I have commissioned another designer to see what they can come up with, so hopefully they can come up with something even better. In the meantime, this is the new one:
Gyeon Syncro coating project
I am in the process of planning out an exciting detailing project that will culminate with a Gyeon coating using their new "Syncro" system. I have no experience using products from the South Korean company, but I have only heard great things. The Syncro system is a two stage process that combines two base coats of their durable Mohs ceramic coating with a durable and flexible top coat of Skin.
I want to thank the owner of Carzilla for suggesting this coating and I look forward to applying it to the Daytona Grey paint on my SQ5. In addition to the Syncro system, Carzilla also supplied me with 1000 ml bottles of Prep, Iron and Wet Coat to ensure I enjoy optimal performance from the Mohs and Skin coatings.

I had the opportunity to speak with Troy, the owner of Auto Obsessed in Edmonton recently. Our conversation was focused on the line up of OBSSSSD premium detailing products.

The RAD Garage kit
I am constantly impressed by the quality of the Leno's Garage line of detailing products and I feel confident their products offer people an effective and affordable way to maintain an immaculate vehicle. In most parts of Canada, maintaining a clean car isn't easy. Intelligent Canadian car lovers avoid automated car washes and opt to wash their cars at their local coin-operated facility, but often times vehicles require further steps in order to be truly spotless. I have compiled a list of Leno's Garage products that I recommend for people who wish to complete the job. Each of the products in this "kit" effectively serves a purpose and I am confident in their performance because I have extensively used them all.
