This is a perfect opportunity to get your cars buffed and shined up, ready for the summer driving weather that is (hopefully) just ahead. We’ll commence the activities at 10 a.m. (not a minute before).
This year's Detailin' Day will be at Coop's Miata in Maple Valley. Bill Cooper, a lifetime member of the club, has offered his property to host the 2018 event.
One of our most popular events, the day provides all club members the chance to vacuum and buff their cars in preparation for summer driving.
You can show up at 10 a.m. with your Miata and start the process with vacuuming your car. After that, you can get in line for the buffing station, and follow that with a final coat of wax to bring your baby to it’s finest shine. All supplies will be provided by the club and Griot’s Garage in Tacoma, another of our sponsors for this event; all you need to bring is some polishing cloths for the final steps and your own elbow grease.
We have one member of the club who has offered to buff cars. However, if no one else steps up to volunteer, then you may well have to buff your own car! We'll provide the supplies and buffing equipment and you can provide the elbow grease. Our longtime buffers, past and present, will be on hand to coach you through the process. Obviously, we do have a need for some additional volunteer buffers. You can contact Tom Millar at firstname.lastname@example.org and he’ll line you up and explain the process (and the perks) of being a volunteer buffer.
As in the past, if a non-member wants to detail a car, cost will be $20 (or you can just join the club for $30).
Lunch will be provided by the board in the form of homemade chili of varying kinds, cornbread, chips, and cold beverages. Please RSVP so we will know how much product to provide and how much lunch to bring. Also, please bring an outdoor chair to sit in so you will have a place to rest your legs after you finish all the work.
