No, it shouldn't be any problems for you to leave early. Just make sure you let us know so we don't park other cars in front of you or anything like that. Too bad you can't stay for the whole thing though! Ahh, such is life! See you guyz on Sunday!

LaterZ!
Darren!!

Aw man, that sucks, no prizes I've been trying to get a ride arranged for him, but no luck. Oh well, just have to get some quality socializing in before it's go time.

With all the respect of being a new member, I just washed my car, clayed, and put sealant and wax on my car, spent whole 7 hours today just doing that! Now all I could hope for is good weather and no bird bombs! See you guys Sunday!

Eric, i think most people uses the Mother's clay bar. i think it basically "sands" down the paint a bit to get rid of the swirl marks. correct me if i'm wrong guys!

Piusma: do you not plan on driving your car tomorrow???

oh...that's clear coat u meant??? i don't want to hurt the clear coat though.... that's why i don't want any polishing...

i might get a 2000 sand paper to take off some of the dirt on the clear coat and then use machine polish it again later....trying to get the painter to teach how now....hehe....

5 Zigen: I guess your talking about wet sanding.. Get a piece of 2000 grit sand paper ( don't get any thing high or lower, also the sandpaper must be ment for wet sanding or it will fall apart!) Get a bucket of water and add some soap, now soak the sandpaper in the water for about 5-10 min to get it soft and flexable. Now fold the sandpaper to about the size of your palm. Wet the car with the soapy water and slowly and softly run the sand paper across the place that needs to be sanded. Remember the key is to always wash down the area with water after a few run with the sand paper. If you don't the paint that you sanded off will "ball up" on the sand paper and will act as a lower grit (more ruff) sandpaper causing deep scratches. Then you have to buff off the scratches with a high speed polisher. But I wouldn't do this unless you have paint runs or heavy under/over spray or your touching up and needed to remove the extra touch up paint.
(Is this clear??)

Your best bet to remove ruff car surface is to use a clay bar..

BTW. What time should I be at the meet by??

I use the Mother's clay bar, I did a research on the web for a bit and figured Mother's clay bar would be the best for us Canadians, unless you wouldn't mind mail order the products from the States. It was very effective. I never knew how important is the waxing and all the claying, sealant stuffs. But I followed a link through the dress up forum and start reading about the webpages. I have always beem puzzling about the swirl marks on my hood and one of the posts caught my attention. I always do the washing myself but on occasions I also use the touchless car washes at the gas stations (which the post pointed out that even the wash was touchless, the chemical can cause swirl marks!). After a few visits to the dealership, I looked at my hood and figured there are lots and lots of circular swirl marks on my hood! I guess I will never let them wash my car again. After spending all those 7 hours, I found out these stuffs do work some wonders, swirl marks are gone, minor scratches get smaller and of course large ones are still there! I didn't do the touch up before I do the claying but my time was limited coz I only started after work. I do plan to drive my car tomorrow but I realized I don't want to do the washing and waxing untill the last minutes. I wouldn't mind getting some dust on my car, it's my daily driver. I just want it to look at little cleaner on Sunday! I still got to see this under the sun tomorrow to justify how good is all these hours of hard labour! I'll let you guys know tomorrow.
