Date: Thursday, April 24th
Time: 5:00pm to 9:00pm

Autogeek's Garage
7744 SW Jack James Drive
Stuart, FL 34997
Mapquest Driving Directions


The door to the right of the garage door is the entrance to our TV Studio, my
red Chevy Silverado is usually parked right in front of the entrance door.



Here's some "before" pictures....











Holograms in gel-coat
The below picture is a full size section cropped out of the above resized picture. The lines you see running back and forth across where the flash from my camera is lighting up the side of the hull are holograms from a rotary buffer.








Holograms in gel-coat
The below picture is a full size section cropped out of the above resized picture. The lines you see running back and forth across where the flash from my camera is lighting up the side of the hull are holograms from a rotary buffer.




These graphics that spell out Shearwater are a soft form of plastic that feels like rubber. If you run a buffing pad on a rotary buffer over them you will harm them and even disfigure them.

All of the gel-coat in and around these graphics will have to be addressed very carefully.




Water Spot Stains & Oxidation
Not only is the entire hull filled with holograms from the misuse of a rotary buffer, (the normal practice by most boat detailers), the gel-coat is also oxidized and covered with water spot stains.






Oxidized Gel-coat
The top side is oxidized from exposure to the sun. The white gel-coat cap has no gloss, shine or reflection. Gel-coat in this condition is very porous and will tend to deteriorate even faster than gel-coat that is smooth, glossy and sealed with wax.

Because the sides of this boat are filled with holograms, more than likely from someone finishing while using a wool pad on a rotary buffer, chances are VERY good that the top side is also filled with holograms it's just with the oxidation and because the gel-coat is white we can't see the holograms. That doesn't meant they are not there, it just means we can't see them. We still have to remove them.










T-top Waterproofing and Oxidation Removal
We will be removing the canvas off the T-top and then washing and water-proofing the canvas and then while the canvas is off we can polish the white paint and seal the frame to restore a new look while protecting it too...






Metal and Plastic Surfaces
All the brightwork on this boat is just like the hull and top side, that is it's oxidized, water spotted and dull so we'll be doing some metal polishing as well as restoring all the eisenglass.

Not yet.

We have a HOT project we're working on today and tomorrow to try to finish before Thanksgiving and looks like I'll be busy with this into next week which is the first week of December.


Let me get this project finished and see where were at schedule-wise and then go from there.

It's my hope and goal to get the boat here in December because January, February and March are ALWAYS crazy busy for Autogeek.

Hang tight... I'm working full speed...

***Update***


This class is confirmed in concrete.


This is the first boat detailing class for 2014 and this is going to be a great opportunity to learn how to use rotary buffers to buff otu a really cool boat.


So clear your schedule and share the link to this thread with all you boating buddies as well as you buddies that already detail cars but have been wanting to tap into the boat detailing market, which is HUGE in South Floirda.
