    May Members Meeting with Mothers Car Care

    Tuesday, 7 May 2019 | 7.30 pm 

    Shannons Insurance
    40 Corporate Drive, Heatherton
     

    We can all wash our cars but with a little bit of effort a lot more can be done to make our cars look their best.  The key is using the correct products and tools and knowing how to use them.


    Mothers are well known as suppliers of quality car care products and tools, including their Wax Attack Lithium battery powered random orbital polisher. 

    If you don't know what that means, here is your chance to find out why you should!

    Even if you are not into detailing there will be plenty of useful things to learn.

    Mothers will instruct and inform on their range which includes exterior and interior care.

    Of special interest to many will be a hands on demonstration of plastic headlamp restoration/cleaning/chip removal. Something we'll probably all need sooner or later.

    Ample time will be devoted to questions and answers, the more questions the better.

    Plus time to chat as usual.
