Hi all! :D

Not my very first post, but darned near. ;)
Been in forums since the early days, back when they called them 'bbs'. That was the days of Prodigy, then CompuServe, then that newfangled thing called AOL (that I couldn't STAND). Was a Sysop (they call them Moderators now) on a couple forums over on CompuServe for years.

New Cruze hatch just showed up around here lately. :giggle:We've been big car folks for decades. My wife started driving a SUV before we ever though of having kids (our oldest is 28), and up until last year she drove big. She started driving a little Nissan after her dad passed last year and decided (for a work vehicle) that getting 30 mpg isn't all that bad. So we sold her dads car and got her Lil' Blue.

Of course we still have the big stuff, a 16 Silverado 4x4 crew cab that's loaded, I mean REALLY LOADED LTZ (with 22" chrome oem rims) that she bought me last year. Said I needed a 4 wheel drive to pull that bass boat I've been wanting. GOOD WOMAN THAT ONE! :bowing:Then there's the 06 G35 6MT I keep in the garage for special occasions (it has 35k on it). And when I'm feeling old... there's a 1930 Model A sitting around. LOL

Movie, TV, Music, and car guy best describes me. Retired, but enjoy high end detailing. Not the kind that your local dealership does when they have a sign up that says "Full Deluxe Detail for $95" because my was jobs start at $65. I actually get referrals FROM dealerships and body shops. Not the same thing as they do, not at all.... nope... my detailing jobs take from a day to a week. Breaking out a buffer (which isn't a rotary by the way, except for my small one that has 1", 2" & 3" pads) means I'm spending 2 to 7 days on the car. Life is too short to have swirled paint. :D

Anywho.... might check out a couple photos I put up over on the "Saw my first Cruze hatch today" thread. (Can't put the link yet, still a newbie.)

Later,

Cardaddy

Hey there!

Yup... Mama loves her new toy too! :) Don't miss that extra 8" from the sedan AT ALL. ;-)
Welcome to the forum!

Looking forward to your pictures.
Bill, I'll get those right up.
Welcome to the forum! Seems like you got a nice collection there.
Thank you indeed. It's a bit scattered if nothing else. Oh, and there is a jacked up 3rd gen 4 Runner (my son's) and we share a Yamaha R6. (Well... I insure it, he rides it. If that makes any sense.) LOL

Yes sir indeed! :)
I hang out on a couple detailing forums, and seem to go a bit over the top when it comes to all things on that end of the spectrum.

Here are a few shots of Lil Blue when we got it, first buffed it, had it tinted, then after I put the chrome trim on.

Later,

Sorry about these, it was dark when I installed the chrome moldings last weekend. (This was actually via halogen and led work lights.) ;-)

Welcome to CruzeTalk! Nice lookin Cruze! :th_dblthumb2:
TYVM Brando!

Welcome aboard fellow detail nut.

Hey Rob.

Where abouts are you?

Yup... I've been a neat freak with my cars since the 70's.

Harder for me to spend days in end buffing like I once would have. Which makes it even more important that today's buffers do a better job than the old rotary would have. ;-)

FWIW I have a GG6, a Rupes, and 2 Flex buffers now. A bad day buffing is better than a good day with swirled out paint! :)
