article surf city

Testimonials from Users of Surf City Garage products  say it all ! Finally someone got it right. I live in Arizona where the sun is a real problem for the paint on my car. I keep it waxed for protection. The problem is that every other detail spray either leaves streaks or removes wax. I see it on the rag when I wipe down the car. I tried your Hot Rod Protective Detailer over the weekend. Perfect! It leaves no trace of streaks and it has no effect on my fresh wax. The UV protection is icing on the cake. I have no idea why it took so long for a company to come up with this but I am glad you guys did it.  Carl Martin, Chandler, Arizona   Read more  from real car guys...

build articles   57 fairlane ed dymitrowicz

Just thought I'd send you some photos of the car I am currently restoring. I had originally seen this car in 1966 and one of the photos I included is the one I originally took. I found it in pieces a few years ago after having been taken apart and media blasted in 1983 and then stored in a trailer. I am restoring it to how it was shown in 1963-1967. Ed Dymitrowicz
