Robert, been missing you and all your words of wisdom, ideas, tricks, products and more videos. Like for you to check in at least once a month. Can imagine you're very busy with all the auction cars on TV lately, etc. What are you doing that keeps you the most busy? Hope all is well for you.

I usually talk to him a couple days a week. He's in Illinois visiting his in laws this week and otherwise he's been on the road taking care of cars for big collectors and car museums. I'll tell him you were asking about him.

I've been really busy over the last few months so I haven't been around here as much as I'd have liked. I'm still polishing up a storm out here and trying to get a little better every day.

Here's an example of a car I did the other day. Pretty easy to get right even though it had a lot of filler over the top of more than a few scratches. Still, a terrific car to work on.

There are a couple of cars in the background I didn't do, maybe three from what I counted looking at the photos. Anyway, I'm still at large and glad to see a post wondering what I was up to.

Here are a couple more. http://www.crevierclassiccars.com/inventory/203

Nice car and nice site. Do you do the engine and interior also?

Wow, that 31 Chrysler is great. I can't imagine what it takes to detail it, or do you just dust it off. ;)

I do everything on all the cars as far as detailing is concerned. I don't spray paint or dye because we have two guys who are specialists for those things.

I polished out the Chrysler before its first show at Pebble and done whatever it needed since then. It won best paint best finish at Dana Point Concours. There's a lot of car there and a fair amount of hand polishing.

Great to hear from you. With your profession, how can you not be busy?

That Chrysler is not only a large car but every part of it has so much detail. Have to ask you how long it took you to detail the car the first time?

Robert, thank you for the post, all the products, information, training, being there for all of us through the years. A lot of paint glows much better with all the assistance you've given. Take care.

Thanks again for the kind words. That Chrysler took about 12 hours the first time. It wasn't really bad, but needed the filler taken off and full polish. Most the time was spent doing the tight areas, the motor and undercarriage. Thankfully it was a pretty fresh restoration.

All the best,
Robert
