Above is an amazing video put together by our friend Michael Kariker at MK Media. On Dec 2, 2017 we hosted the annual Express Rally "Holiday Hoon" Toy Drive. The event is put on for the Children's Advocacy Center of Benton County in collaboration with The Circuit, Express Rally and Jason's Pro Detail. This year we raised well over 300 toys, bringing in the largest donation to date! It was such an amazing event to be apart of and we are more than excited and honored to host the event.
A huge Thank You to everyone who braved the weather predictions to come hang out with us September 17, 2017 for our annual Open House Event. Even though it ended up raining, we all still had an amazing time! By Chance Productions finished up our video, so those of you that couldn't make it can still enjoy watching the times we had! We absolutely can not wait for the next event at Jason's Pro Detail!
In June, myself, Michael Gottlieb (Thumpers Auto Salon of San Antonio) and Joe McGrath (Dirty Details of Virginia Beach) decided to make another trip to the west coast. While there, we would test out new Shine Supply Products and work with some of the best detailers on the west coast.
We arrived in Los Angeles late afternoon and after a quick dinner at The Boiling Crab (delicious!), we headed up to Santa Barbara to meet up with Nick Colbern of Colbern's Detail. We wasted no time and around 8:00pm instantly jumped on a Blue Porsche 996. The four of us were able to do a complete Paint Correction and Coat it with CQuartz UK in just a few hours. The owner was ecstatic in its appearance, letting us know the job was complete!
Day two we were joined by Stefan Lungstrum (Authentic Detail of Vacaville, CA), Rob Noonan (20/20 Detailing of Sacramento), Corey Lippincott (Corey's Kreative Detail of Murrieta, CA) and California Reflections. Together, we all knocked out a quick mobile job for Colbern's Detail and then headed south to the Shine Supply Headquarters in Ventura, CA.
While at Shine Supply, we all teamed up and did a full Paint Correction and CQuartz Finest Detail on a Black Porsche 997. It didn't take much time considering each person could work on a panel, but we took advantage of the situation and spent the day product testing and teaching each other techniques. This was by far the most amazing experience of my career as I learned so much!
The next few days were spent hanging out, shopping at Shine Supply, eating some good food and exploring the area. I miss my extended family and absolutely cannot wait to go back and do it again! In the meantime, I will take everything I learned from them and continue to turn out the killer results my clients expect. See you soon Cali!
I'm a little late posting this, but I guess, "Better Late than Never."
In December 2014, I received a call from Shine Supply creator, Jeremy Stevens, asking if I was up for traveling to California. The catch was, I would be leaving the next week!! Without hesitation, I booked a flight, packed my bags and set out to the West Coast. Jeremy had three days of work, play and training prepared.
Day One, December 8, I met with fellow detailers Josh Wiley and Austin Hedges (Wet Detail-Memphis), Michael Gottlieb (Thumpers - San Antonio), Nick Colbern (Colberns Detail - Santa Barbara) and Kyler Martin (Kylers Detail - Seattle) to begin an epic journey. We traveled two hours outside Los Angeles to a Semi Truck facility, to perform Gloss Enhancement and Waxes on seven Sleeper Cab Trucks. It took us 8 hours to complete something we imagined would take two full days.. and we were worn out by the end of it! We finished up the night chowing down on some of the best sushi to touch my taste buds!
Day Two, December 9, was spent at the Shine Supply Headquarters. We were greeted by founder Jeremy Stevens, Employee Jared Raschke and fellow Detailer, Wes Walz (Elite Finish Detailing - San Diego). We used this day to familiarize ourselves with the complete Shine Supply line of products, test out new ones and do some training. We used our rental car as a training surface and spent 4 hours learning tips and practicing Advanced Paint Correction. Basically, we had nine of the craziest detailers in the country, in one room, making a rental cars value sky rocket. It was AWESOME!
Day Three was the saddest of them all. It was time to head home. We made one last trip to the SS Headquarters, to stock up on supplies and say our goodbyes. It was then off to the airport, but not before grabbing a quick lunch at In N Out Burger.. I think we ate there daily.
In conclusion, I had an excellent time and motivating experience. I learned so much from everyone on this trip and cant wait to make my next. I truly believe you can only teach yourself so much... traveling, experiencing and learning is key to growing your skills and that's exactly what I did.
