In March of 2018, I was asked to travel to Wichita, KS to work on an extremely special and very limited car... the 2017 Ford GT. This wasn't just a "pick some options they offer" Ford GT, but actually a custom spec'd one, including the one off paint color. I was asked to help by Wichita local detailer, Andrew Holder of Holder's Detailing.
The plan was to remove the factory defects (surprisingly there was quite a few), apply Suntek Paint Protection Film to the entire vehicle and finish it off with a Ceramic Coating. I would be assisting in everything except the Ceramic Coating.
Our crew had the vehicle completely polished and defect free by early afternoon on day one and immediately started prepping the car for PPF. Up to this time, only four Ford GT's had been completely PPF'd, so information was slim on how to attack this difficult car. We spent a total of 4 days laying PPF on every exterior panel, the Carbon Fiber along the lower half, even the Carbon Fiber inside the car. I had to head back to Arkansas Friday afternoon, so we pulled it outside so I could snap some pictures for my portfolio. After I left, Andrew applied the Ceramic Coating and delivered the vehicle to an extremely happy client. This experience/vehicle will definitely be one of my most memorable details to date. Enjoy the photos.

Every year, CQuartz Professional and Finest Reserve Installers gather in one location, to discuss methods, products and industry changes. We call this seminar “The Verge”.
With a hand picked network of the industry’s best detailer (around 100 of us in all of Canada, US and Mexico), we are a tight knit group of friends that love passing knowledge and experience to one another. This year (2018), we met at Cavallo Auto Salon in Houston, TX. We trained on Paint Protection Film, Advanced sanding techniques, perfecting paint using multiple types of machines, coating processes and future versions and finished it up with a day of business discussions and personal successes.
As an installer, this event helps me hone my skills and bring back new knowledge to all of Northwest Arkansas, year after year. Just as with any industry, products, tools and techniques are constantly evolving. This allows me to ensure we constantly stay tuned and ready to deliver the best product possible to our clients.
I want to thank my clients for allowing me the opportunities to attend these events, Jason Cavallo for his hospitality this weekend and Corey Carruth of CarPro US for bringing us all together. Now back to work we go!!
