Camaro Wanted!!

Looking for a SoCal volunteer near the Inland Empire/Rancho Cucamogna area (or willing to drive out) for a improptu video shoot. With the HUGE amount of questions that get asked DAILY about how to care for the factory stripes I believe a video is in order to show you guys my processes.

Looking for:
  • 5th Gen Camaro (obviously)
  • Factory MATTE BLACK stripes, preferably in less than perfect condition.
  • Car color is not important, just need matte stripes.
  • Probably need the car for a little more than a half day and you're welcome to come hang out at my pad, assist in the video shoot, and I'll hook you up well with goodies for your time.
  • Free detailing advice while you're here - I'll talk your ear off about it and show you how to do anything you need to know.
  • Cold beers in the fridge, potential for BBQ is always there

Anyone interested please shoot me an email with a picture or description of your car: Dylan@AdamsPolishes.com

For the amount of times I'm emailed about this question on a daily basis I'm shocked no one has jumped on this yet... no joke I've gone back and counted. Either via PM or email I answer the "How do I take care of my matte stripes?" question 2-3x a day AVERAGE!!

Guys I've gotten a bunch of volunteers... unfortunately all of them either don't have stripes or have gloss stripes.

Again, I'm looking exclusively for a Camaro with factory MATTE BLACK STRIPES as that seems to be where the most confusion for how to care for them lies.

Thanks!

NICE! Soon, but no rush... obviously with the rain right now nothings gonna happen in the next few days. As soon as I have a volunteer(s) who can do it then we'll work out a date.

Shoots just gonna be done in the garage at my house. This isn't some major production... just a down and dirty, quick and easy, shoot to show the different ways to care for the factory matte stripes. I've typed out the answers so many times its obvious I should just shoot a vid.
