Custom Car Builder Rich Evans will be at Detail Fest!

You may have seen Rich Evans on the Speed Channel’s Chop Cut & Rebuild. Now you can see him in person at Autogeek’s 5th Annual Detail Fest with his creation, the H2O Knight!

Rich is the owner and operator of Huntington Beach Bodyworks located in California. He specializes in incredible custom rebuilds. His work has been featured on television shows – Chopper Nation, Steel Dreams, Two Guys Garage, American Thunder, and Monster Garage – and in movies, including the upcoming “Kick Ass” and “Kill Speed”. ?Magazines, including Trucking, Airbrush Action, and Super Rod, have showcased Rich’s vehicles, too. Rich has won the Prestige Painter Award from House of Kolors in 2005, 2006, and 2007.

Rich has been in the auto repair business all his life, but his real passion is custom rebuilds. In 1992, Rich opened Huntington Beach Bodyworks in his garage. Within a few years, he had outgrown several locations and finally settled into a 13,000 sq. ft. building that he painted to look like a castle. It’s truly a garage like no other. In this facility, Rich and his crew build some of the most original and fantastic vehicles on the road. In fact, Rich painted the famous Meguiars Semi Truck Urban Assault that will be making a repeat appearance at Detail Fest.

Some of Rich’s famous projects are Hardcore Knight, Hardcore H2O, Skull King, Ol Yeller, Black Knight, Penguin, Evil Soldier, Liberty Soldier, Meguiars 5th Wheel, Electric Queen, Shock & Awe, and Dan Chuck ’56 Vet.

Rich painted the Meguiar's truck that will be appearing at Autogeek's 5th Annual Detail Fest on March 27-28.

The New Porter Cable How-To Video is Live!

How to use the Porter Cable 7424XP to Remove Swirls
This new video shows a 3 step process to remove swirls out of a clear coat finish PLUS how to do a TEST SPOT to make sure you’re getting GREAT results before you attempt to buff out your entire car.

This how-to video shows everything you need to know about using a DA Polisher to do a Test Spot on your car and then the idea is, after you PROVE your system, that is after you successfully use your choice of pads, products and technique to remove the swirls in one small area, then you simply duplicate the same process over the rest of the car. Once you prove your system by doing a test spot you’re guaranteed success.

By doing a Test Spot and proving you can make one small section look great you’ll have the confidence to duplicate your process over the rest of the car and create a show car finish.

You’ll see,

  • How to remove swirls
  • How to polish the paint to a high gloss
  • How to apply a paint sealant by machine

Packed with Tips and Techniques
Besides showing the correct technique for working by machine to clean, polish and wax or seal your car’s paint there’s also lots of tips and techniques included in the video.

Techniques work with all 3 popular DA Polishers
The techniques shown in this video will work with all three of these DA Polishers,

Universal Techniques
These techniques will also work with any quality Foam Buffing Pads as well as any quality Swirl Mark Removers, Polishes and Glazes and, of course, your favorite Car Wax or Paint Sealant.

On a personal note…
It’s really easy for me to be my own worst critic and there’s a few glitches for sure but all and all I think it came out pretty good and after a second editing it will be even better.

Please feel free to post any questions or comments you have after watching the video to the forum.

Thank you…
A huge thank you to Max for supporting this new educational division of Autogeek.net and another huge thank you to Yancy for all his hard editing work. I’d also like to thank our Director Jason and everyone else at Autogeek for their help and support.
