Chris Cruz Artistry

As many of you may (or may not) know, Chris took time from his very busy schedule to come to our June 2015 meeting and gave an exciting presentation showing many examples of his spectacular paint work and answering many “how-to” questions about car paint care & maintenance.  He has done several member’s cars including the Chris Vinson’s “over the top” Torch Red 2014 C7 coupe, Tom Reynolds Metallic Red 2003 C5 roadster, Charlie Taylor’s 2007 C7 Monterey Red roadster.  Chis has the talent to recreate nearly anything you want on, under, or in your Vette (or motorcycle if you have one).  His artistry and, more importantly, his creativity, is among the best I’ve seen in many years.  

If you want to take your Vette from: 

“BLAAH”

to

“HOLY CRAP, I’VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS”

you need to see Chris. Many examples of his work can be found at his website: CHRIS CRUZ ARTISTRY WEBSITE

Member Rudy Neustadter had “paint match” issue with the top of his recently purchased 1961 Fawn Beige C1, it didn’t quite match the body of the car.  Elias was able to not only match the paint exactly but did a superb job of applying the paint to the removable hardtop that came with Rudy’s car. 10/20/15

 DETAILING

KK’s AUTO DETAIL

 

Recently moved into a new facility, now at 3150 US Hwy 441/27 Fruitland Park, FL 34731. As you know, I am very meticulous and he did the red convertible.

He washes it, clays it and then does a fantastic job with the wax. It is supposed to last a year, but I still add more on my own. I highly recommend him. He is very reliable and knowledgeable. He has confirmed he can handle our club and he assured us he would not let us down and actually does several of our members.  He also details the dealership next door.  Recommended by Tom & Pam Travaglio, owners of a 1988 White Coupe & a 2001 Red Roadster.  (Added 10/2014)

Member George B took his 2015 Stingray there to have his rear Michelin Pilot EMT (run-flat) patched.  This is not normally done as it negates the “Z” rating of the tire but they said they do it all the time.  This after visiting another local tire “stealer” who refused to patch it but was more than willing to sell me a brand new tire for $300+.  Easy decision, now I just have to keep it under 170 MPH to be safe.
