‘64 Ford Falcon Futura

'64 Falcon Futura

The owner recently purchased this 1964 Ford Falcon Futura and wanted to enhance the paint gloss. Along with out state shows, he drives it around town.  

The 1964 Ford’s paint was thin in areas which prohibited heavy paint correction. We  agreed on a light polish and Gtechniq EXO ceramic coating for protection.

With the coating the Falcon will clean up easily. Road debris and bugs will come wipe off with little effort or use of harsh chemicals.  

Now, the owner can spend less time washing and more time admiring other vehicles and socializing at car meets.

Going Back to School

Reading to Class

Although never a student at Toney Elementary, Yasir of Red Clay Detailing had driven past the school countless times. He grew up in the area and at one time lived in the neighborhood shared with Toney.

This year, he set foot in the halls for the very first time. He joined over twenty five African American Men for Toney Elementary Read In.

Each year, Toney Elementary invites African American men from the community for its Read In. The event is held in observance of Black History Month. The invitation is open to men across Atlanta.

During the Read In, Yasir read to five different classrooms of varying grades. He visited Kindergarten, First, Third and Fifth Grade classes. He had three different books to accommodate the different ages.

During the visit, the Toney Elementary staff was very welcoming from the principal, teachers, and students. Each classroom greeted Yasir with a “Good Morning,” “Hello,” or “Welcome.” The students were attentive and engaging. They asked questions about the stories. Some students would predict what would happen next.

1986 BMW M6 Faded Paint

The owner wanted to bring the 1986 BMW M6 paint back to life. It had sat under a car port for years.

First, the car needed a bath. The BMW was cleaned of all the dirt, dust, debris, and leaves. This allowed for a better inspection of the paint.

Put mildly, the unpreserved 30 year old paint was in poor shape. It was dull and faded. It was covered in water spots and deep scratches. The BMW M6 required sanding and heavy compound polishing with wool pad.

After removing the scratches and water spots, the paint gloss was not at its best. It still need further refining. One more step was needed: polishing.

Polishing the paint removed any haze from compounding. It made the paint pop! The M6 hasn’t look this good in a long time. Who knows how long it sat without any real love and care?
