Well guys, I've been real busy the last weeks, we moved to a new building, sold the old one in downtown LA, installed a McGaughys lowering deluxe kit, 2/3 on the Supercharged Escalade, installed an invisble bra with the newer 3M stuff (love it no more orange peel look), and waiting for TIS 24's for SEMA.

Any of you attending, look me up, my Escalade will be in the DUB magazine area of the show, (our main sponsors)

We will have TIS 22" with TOYO tires on one side and TIS 24's (a new model not out yet) with BFG's on the other side.

Had problems with the McGaughys, we could not get it to ride right, it was either too tight or too loose, we found out that if we moved the link anchor on the suspension arm and the ride control came back and it's great.

The reason was that the computer is expecting a larger movement than what you get when you lower the truck, by moving the link anchor towards the axle this made them movements faster greater and the computer makes the shocks work correctly.

We just put in stock links and moved the ball from one hole to the other, cool that GM leaves another hole there... I don't know for what, but it worked for us.

See you guys there......

Hi George, I know this is off topic. But I notice you live in Los Angeles. Do you know of any good detailers and any that use Zaino products. I'm desparate. I just can't take the swirls and the bad car washes anymore. Thanks in advance :)
Peace :helpless:

We don't know anyone professional that uses Zaino products, actually I've never heard of any professionals using Zaino.

Our Escalade was color sanded. painted and finsihed at Foreign Auto Body, 1843 Artesia Blvd., Gardena, CA 90247, I recommend them highly and they do nothing but show cars, they did an Overhaulin' show there. Talk to Jeff, (310) 516-0345 tell him Ernie from lovecars sent you.

I have several detailers (can't tell you how good they are) using Zaino, as well as 3 Ford, 2 Chevy, 1 BMW, 1 Mercedes Benz, 1 Mini Cooper and 1 Dodge dealership that just use Zaino on all new cars delivered, took a while and a lot of training but it was worth it. ;)

No, you just have to be in the Automtive industry, actually there are not many dealers that attend, mostly it's aftermarket stuff.

You can get in if you belong to a car club that belongs to SEMA or if you know someone in the industry that can get you in with their name.

It's too late for us to add anyone, you wouldhave to show up and go to the registration booth to register.
