Hurricane Region PCA Oktoberfest 2014

Hurricane Region PCA Oktoberfest 2014

Many thanks to the PCA Hurricane Region staff & crew for inviting me yesterday to speak about basic detailing principles. If you are curious, this is a once a year event featuring beautiful Porsches in the Raleigh, Durham, Cary, & North Carolina Area:

All Porsche and other exotic car owners are invited to the annual Hurricane Region Porsche Club of America OktoberFest on Sunday October 5, 2014.  OktoberFest is an afternoon event filled with people, cars and refreshments and gives you a chance to enjoy some of the area’s finest automobiles.   This is a low-key “wash and show” event, so no need to get out the Q-Tips and white gloves to show your car.

As in years past, we will be holding OktoberFest at the picnic area at Montague Lake in the Cary / Raleigh area.  Montague’s is located at 10301 Penny Road, just east of the intersection of Penny Road and Kildaire Farm Road.

Detailing Information Sessions:

Thanks for the participation, support, and inquisitive questions. I apologize for the final session at 2:30, we had to shrink the vehicle protection portion due to timing. In the future there will be more diagrams, samples, demo vehicles, and hands on experience. If you were confused, my apologies as car detailing can be hard to explain through word. A quick summary with all the guides and information:

Car Microfiber Technology

Our Korean vs Chinese Towels guide explains why Korean microfiber towels have a higher quality, durability, softness, and overall value for any discerning Porsche fanatic.

Proper microfiber towel care is essential to longevity! No bleach, softener, perfumes, dyes, or mixing with cotton based towels. Use vinegar in the rinse cycle, and tumble dry without high heat. Checkout our gigantic microfiber cleaning guide.

CarPro Microfiber MadnessPakshak, RagCompany are top tier companies for microfibers. Our microfiber on display were primarily RagCompany.

Easy Car Washing: Embracing Waterless Wash Systems

For washing and cleaning your vehicle I push Optimum OptiClean and Optimum No Rinse & Shine as waterless wash systems that are cutting edge. Read our ONR Guide to see an easier way to clean your vehicle without relying on high volume of soap or water.

For wheels, consult our ultimate wheel care guide. Products like Braun Wheel Woolies and Sonax Wheel Cleaner save time.

We also have a large car detailing maintenance guide for any car care questions.

Paint Thickness & Car Protection

Wipe On Walk Away polymer sealant paint protection such as Optimum Opti-Seal & Ultima Paint Guard Plus are innovative solutions to avoid the labor intensive work of using hand waxes or sealants.

Our paint thickness article will most likely be available by Winter 2014. It will discuss the standard thickness of most OEM vehicle, independent layer thicknesses, save clear coat removal numbers, and explain how paint thickness meters work.

This was our first large car information session, so a big thank you to Hurricane PCA for allowing a small company to offer a unique detailing perspective. We promise it will be better the next time! Feel free to email contact@liquid-finish.com for any questions.

PCA Oktoberfest 2014 Pictures

While I did not have time to photograph every Porsche between each three sessions, here are a bunch I took around 11am & 3pm. No specifics on numbers, but there were at least 147 registered cars with exceeding capacity at the entrance.
