Back To School Transportation Checklist

So you’ve got all the school supplies, clothes, shoes and accessories for the kids (and maybe yourself too).  But do you have the vehicle ready? This is a hectic time of year and more often than not, most parents feel like personal chauffeurs shuttling their kids from location to location, activity to activity.  If you’ve had a busy summer, your vehicle is probably starting to look quite cluttered, and traces of summer are found all over.  Maybe it’s sand from the beach vacation, salt on the exterior of the car from the ocean, or perhaps trash and crumbs scattered about and mud ground into the carpets.  Whatever the case is, we’re here to help so you can start the school year off right!   We Have The Details Covered   Stop into Ultragloss to get the Back To School treatment so you can drive around the kids in style.  Here’s some services to get your vehicle in shape and ready to endure the year ahead: •Exterior Detail & Paint Correction: Restore your paint, bring out that shine, and finish it out with a sealant that will fight off the little things that damage your finish.  This specialized sealant was made to last up to a year! •Complete Interior Detail: We’ll completely remove all dirt and debris from the vehicle.  We don’t just rub slimy silicone like the other guys in attempt to mask the dirt: we remove it all.  Your vehicle will look and smell great! •Sanitization: This long-lasting, 100% organic product continuously fights bacteria for 90-days.  Completely decontaminate your vehicle and continue to fight off bacteria the kids bring home from school—without the harsh chemicals! So what are you waiting for?  You’ve got the newest clothes, supplies, and more—Don’t you deserve to have your vehicle looking new too?   Don’t Forget Ultragloss has five other divisions to better service you.  Each division specializes in a niche area of the vehicle.  Do you have rips or tears in your seats? Maybe some dings from everyday driving or large dents from a bike or basketball?  No matter what your cosmetic appearance need is, The Ultragloss Family has you covered!  View our Services page here. Like our concept?  Think you have what it takes to be a member of the team and run your own truck?  Check out our Franchise Opportunity...

Goodguys PPG Nationals 2013 – Columbus, OH

Posted by on Jul 18, 2013 in Blog, Events | 0 comments

Goodguys PPG Nationals 2013 – Columbus, OH

This was the third year some of the Ultragloss crew went down to Goodguys PPG Nationals in Columbus, Ohio. We entered the 1972 Chevy C-10 pickup on air with a true blue pearl paint job. We entered a 1964 Chevy Nova with a 383 Stroker Motor, shaved body lines, custom hood, and a candy paint job. A 1965 Chevy Nova with a Modory Sour (green) paint job and a 406 small bloc motor was entered. The 1968 Chevy Suburban on air with a custom interior (Matt of Interiorz did himself). The Suburban had some trouble getting down to Columbus.  Matt Hanna of Interiorz and his wife, Jen, threw a water pump hub on the way down.  It destroyed the radiator, fan, and water hub.  Between Ultragloss and Summit Racing & Equipment, we were able to get them back together.  Jen said, “Our Ultragloss family was right there to help get it off the highway and put it back together without one single complaint.  Out hotrodder friends back home dropped everything to look up parts, get a list together, and make sure we had everything we needed to get the burb back together. We had parts from Summit on hand in hours.  Thanks for all the help guys.  You rock!” Despite some of the misfortune, the whole Ultragloss family had a great time! The burnouts at Quaker Steak & Lube in Columbus seemed to be one of the favorite events of the weekend. The 1964 Chevy Nova had a really nice burnout too. Everyone always enjoys the Goodguys Autocross. Jen Hanna got to drive the Summit Racing and Equipment trailer in the Manufacturer’s Midway after it made its debut on the Autocross. Matt Hanna got to ride shotgun on the Autocross with Al Noe from Summit Racing Equipment. Ultragloss shop manager, Toy Snyder, also got to ride shot gun.  He was in a Camaro. And of course.. Walking around the show we saw a lot of really cool vehicles! Can’t wait for next...
