A classic Tom Sawyer experience?

March 28, 2011 by Judy Trull

AbandonedDo you remember when Tom Sawyer sold his friends on the idea of helping him whitewash the fence?  You will have your chance to live that “sawyer like” experience on Saturday April 9th at Gunner’s Great Garage right here in Manawa.  Shane Hanke- who runs Shane’s Classic Sports Cars at the Garage will play the role of Tom Sawyer, only instead of a fence, you will be learning how to detail with a wide variety of products and techniques Shane’s white Triumph TR7 that is in need of a little TLC. Shane and the crew (which certainly could include you and your friends) will be cleaning the TR7 with Meguiars Clay Bar and other cleaning and polishing products they have been testing. 

Dave Collard of Diamond Dave’s Detailing in Green Bay, WI, has offered to lend his professional assistance in overseeing the “whitewashing” operation as well as sharing some of the techniques they use in house at his shop. This is a rare opportunity to learn some trade secrets before the old car show season is upon us.  Gunner’s Great Garage will supply clay bar, wax, polish, towels and tools to add to your “hands on” experience.  With any luck and Diamond Dave sharing his knowledge and experience…Shane’s Triumph will indeed be just that.

The “hands on” seminar is free and refreshments will be served. Just call Gunner at 715-281-5925 or Shane at 715-281-1089 to let them know you’re planning to be there. It’s Saturday, April 9, at 9 A.M.

Don’t miss it.
