Great to see everyone today. We missed you Teach!

And gonzo, we missed you at lunch. jxreef had everyone on the floor with his stories. We need to change his name to the Parrot Whisperer now...

As for the no shows, shame on you! You missed a great event!

Here are some of the cars we saw at the shop today.

A GT3-RS from Florida

Re: Detailing meet, Sat., Jan 16

Another mod that gonzo will have done is to paint the rotor hats flat black to remove the rusty stock hat.

Here is an example of how it'll look on a Ferrari F360. It makes a subtle difference visually and really make the calipers pop. Hopefully gonzo will post some photos once this is completed on his car.

If you have one of the denser spoke rims, it make not be worth it to make the change, but the stock Cayman S 5-spokes, it's very visible.
