How To Prepare Classic For Car Show – 1955 Chevy – Chemical Guys Car Care

What’s up guys welcome back to the
Detail Garage. Today we’ve got a special car in the shop,
this is a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air. This car is beautiful. Back in the day this was one of the most desirable
vehicles and it still is today. This car has definitely had a lot of work
done to make it look this great. The owner is getting it ready for a car show
so he wants to take the time to clean it up so it can get some awards and have people
take notice of it. So he brought it to us and we’re going to
take care of it and get it right out the door. This car looks clean because it doesn’t get
driven obviously. It is a trailer queen, it’s taken to every
show on a trailer. Its been towed so many times it thinks it’s
a boat. It still gets little things embedded in the
paint such as the tree sap over here and the leaves stuck in the drip rail. We’re going to take care of all of that using
EcoSmart. EcoSmart is one of the easiest things to use
and also the safest to use on a vehicle like this. Simply spray on and wipe off which will give
you that high shine. It also has a lot of chrome on this car. It’s chrome city. It has fingerprints all over it and a little
oxidation so we want to bring back some of that luster. So we’ll polish it using Butter Wet Wax which
will give it a high shine as well as a durable protection. Lets get started. All you have to do is spray directly on to
the surface and what this is doing is emulsifying the dirt and contaminants that landed on the
paint making it easier to wipe off without scratching the surface. There’s some tree sap here so I’ll let this
saturate so it’ll come off nicely without leaving any residue. I’ve got my Happy Ending Edgeless Towel, it
is super plush. This paint job has had a lot of time and effort
put into it and it little to no scratches and swirls in the finish and I definitely
don’t want to put any scratches or swirls in it so I’ll take my time and remove the
tags from these towels this way they can’t scratch the surface. Fold it fours so you can make it as plush
as possible. Wipe in one direction. Gently back and forth and this pulls off any
contamination and then come back and buff off any wax and you can see it has a high
slick shine. It’s as simple as that. Well guys there you have it. Now you see just how simple and easy it is
to get your car looking right before any show. This ’55 is all cleaned up and I’m really
happy with the result and I’m also glad we had the chance to work on this. It is going to turn a lot of heads at the
show this weekend. Being that this is a ’55 Chevy it is an iconic
car and it stands out on its own. Its been in movies like American Graffiti
and it is just a car you desire. If you like this car or this video be sure
to give it a thumbs up. Don’t forget to check out our website where
we have a ton of videos showing you how to do just about anything. You got a nice car lets keep it clean…y’all
know the rest. We’ll see you next time.

  1. Chemical guys, if I can please make a recommendation, for all future microfiber towels you sell, please make them WITHOUT tags if at all possible, or at best, just have them as a sticker.

  2. I highly doubt there would be tree sap on a trailer queen that's never driven. How is that possible and smudges on the chrome? No way! I have a 57 show car and I am always waxing and detailing it and no tree sap or anything on it.
