    Like I said before, I am the Authorized Detailer for Formula D. Which is a drift/car show coming to Houston in June.

    I have to bring my own water. So therefore, I am ordering some QEW. I don't know how much water to bring. There's supposed to be 20 cars to do, but i'm not postive on the count. How many gallons of water should i bring?


    Also, I'm worried about polishing the race cars with vinyl stickers on the body and what not. I'm worried that polish and wax will build up on the edges on the stickers and turn them white. How should I avoid this?

    I'm sure i'm going to be nervous as hell when this comes around. :hsd:

    are you doing these all in one day?

    i use about ~ 1 gallon in my 5 gallon buckets to do my dads entire c5

    so you'll have to figure 20 gallons+ im guessing

    if i were around stickers id tape em up or keep away from them.

    You will need about a gallon of water per car.

    Work up to the stickers and finish off by hand.

    i doubt i'd be using a PC because these are show cars. I'm sure they'd be claybarred. hopefully :x: I'm hoping they'd just need a polish and wax.
