Polished Bliss Sunday 15th July - seeing is believing!!

Postby The Pram » Thu Jul 05, 2007 9:06 pm

Just a wee update re the upcoming Polished Bliss event. Please see the web page for full details of the company. Here you will find the address, contact number and details of the products and services offered, amongst other things.
http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/index.html

We plan to attend Kintore around lunchtime on Sunday 15th but I have to make the final arrangements with Rich next week. The purpose of the event is to demonstrate, in an interactive way, how to detail your car and rectify paint problems. Rich will answer all your questions and offer guidance on what to do and not to do.

For those that don’t know, we held a raffle earlier in the year to select the car that would be used for the full demonstration. Graham won and will have his black car with Rich from the Friday. Three quarters of his car will be worked on over the weekend with a final panel left for the demonstration on Sunday. It became apparent when Graham and Rich met to discuss what was to happen that the retail cost of the work to be carried out would be £460!!. Not bad prize for a £1 raffle ticket (wish I bought more now!!). You may wonder why the company would give away such a costly prize but they believe that word of mouth on seeing the finished product is a far better way to advertise themselves. In fact Rich said that most of their business has been generated this way. Graham was certainly very impressed by the cars he saw and even offered to pay towards the cost as he was so keen to have the work done. Luckily he doesn’t have to though.

So, in short, the cost to us for the afternoon demonstration, maybe a wee nibble/light refreshments thrown in, 10% discount on all stock products/ possibility of bigger discounts on some products, is a big fat zero. All I ask is that we try to drum up support for the event to the tune of around 12 cars. Rich reckons this is a nice number to make it worth his while and not too much so that people get left out. Obviously there is no upper limit and everyone is more that welcome to come along. I’m sure its not everyone’s cup of tea but I’m also sure it will be a very informative and fun afternoon.

If you plan to attend can you maybe get back to me so that I can let Rich know. Please email me or add a comment to the thread.

thanks for now and hope to see you a week on Sunday.

Will there be a demo on machine polishing or will it be hand polishing only?

Just spoken to my neighbour Paul who has an Alfa 147 GTA - I'm going to forward him the link for this thread as he's interested in popping along!

Right oh, the start time is 1pm. Rich is providing light refreshments and nibbles for us.
Can I have a bit more interest here. Rich would ideally like 12 cars and is happy for friends to come along too. Get your neighbours to come. The more the merrier. I'll sulk otherwise and that's not bonny :cry:
By all accounts the demo will include a combination of porter cable, hand and rotary techniques. All this for free so what's stopping you :?

I think MikeyG might be coming too. Hopefully he'll see this and confirm.
How long will the demo last for? I have to make arrangements for meeting someone on the way back down and need a rough time.

Boydie, the thing will finish between 3 and 4, depending on what we ask and how many folk turn up. Hope this helps. Looking forward to seeing both you and Michael on Sunday then.
